– The Patriots released tight end Aaron Hernandez Wednesday for his alleged role in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd.

The move came roughly 10 months after the team gave Hernandez a five-year, $40 million contract extension that included $16 million in guarantees.

Not surprisingly, the team has voided the remaining guaranteed money, according to the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin.

Hernandez has already collected $10 million, but the Patriots believe NFL bylaws and the collective bargaining agreement have language pertaining to “conduct detrimental to the best interests of professional football” that could favor the organization’s attempt at voiding all future payments to Hernandez, including his remaining signing bonus.
