NFLPA files grievance on behalf of Aaron Hernandez

Jared Wickerham

The NFLPA is seeking the guaranteed money owed to Aaron Hernandez from the Patriots.

The NFLPA has filed a grievance on behalf of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandezaccording to David Frank of Massachusetts Law Weekly. The NFLPA is seeking the guarantees of Hernandez's base salaries in 2013 and 2014, according to Pro Football Talk.

The NFLPA was forced to act on Hernandez behalf due to his contract, per Frank. The two base salaries were guaranteed even if Hernandez was cut. Since the former Patriot was released, the team has failed to pay him the money that he was assured in his contract. Hernandez is currently in jail in Connecticut and was indicted by a grand jury for the murder of Odin Lloyd in August.

The Patriots released him from his contract in June. He pleaded not guilty in September to the murder charges and is being held without bail. He is also being sued for his alleged involvement in shooting at a Miami strip club.
