Are the Patriots going to be able to recoup the money from Aaron Hernandez given the developments this week in the double murder indictment?

Mike Florio of NBC's Pro Football Talk compares the Patriots' situation to the Falcons' in 2007 with Michael Vick.

"The Falcons did not cut [Vick]." said Florio. "That is a key ingredient if you want to try to recoup money from a player."

"The moment the Patriots cut Aaron Hernandez, I believe they forfeited their rights to collect any of the signing bonus money that they had already paid to him."
