    Highly doubt the two are related. More than likely he's just trying to get better to make good on the big contract he just signed.

    A) It's winter
    B) live there 6 months plus a day and Cali will have a say in that matter
    C) Athletes are moving out of Cali, not in, due to the state's progressive tax code
    D) Slightly off topic...but revenue needy states are changing the laws to claim more tax revenue from part time residents. Minnesota's governor wants the threshold to be 2 months. Own a lake house in Minn. and spend the summer, the Gov. wants a piece of that action.
    The rich are fleeing Cali, NY, IL, Maryland all because these cash strapped states won't make cuts. Texas says thank you. Lesson over

    How do you infer this from Hernandez renting a house out there?

    And this is a real good sign for this kid. Fiancee, baby, moving close to his QB in the off season...it's all good. His periodic lapses in focus have hurt him along with the nagging injuries. This sounds like a plan to work on both.

    Maybe Gronk should join them. I bet Brady could find things for him to do to occupy his time during the off season beyond those he seems most drawn to.

    Yup, Wes and Anna can visit any time. There are plenty of spare rooms in the mansion... Besides Wes doesn't need the work these days, more like rest.

    I believe that athletes are required to file in all of the states where they played games in that year. Not sure, but I remember reading something to that effect.

    Hernandez may not be a better athlete,but he sure is more mature than Gronkowski at his age.

    The most he will be there is 3 months. The off season program now starts in May. And there are mini camps in June. Players and coaches generally take the first 3 weeks in July off for pre camp vacation. Camp opens in July.

    Hernandez may not be a better pass catching/run blocking TE than Gronk. But i'd put money to say he is a better overall athlete.

    You won't see Gronk making the cuts Hernandez does.

    Yea, this is the guy who came out of college with "character concerns." How wrong they were.

    That's what you get for deeming marijuana consumption a character concern.

    Athletes are taxed based on "duty days" they spend in each state.

    Lesson corrected.

    I'm surprised Breer didn't spin this news to say something like 'Hernandez will not attend OTAs' or something like that.



    I was under the impression that athletes were taxed on a pro-rated amount dependent on the state (and city or county in some cases) that corresponded to their team's schedule. For example an NFL player receives 16 game checks; 8 taxed locally (Foxboro), one in Seattle WA, one in Buffalo NY, one in Miami FL, etc.

    Is that the same thing, or something different?

    It's right near the "Y". You have to go down there to apply.

    That's the test for residency. You can and will be taxed as a non-resident and there's no minimum stay requirement.

    States tax non-residents based on what they earn while in the state. That's why NH residents who work over the line in MA pay income tax to MA even if they've never spent a night in MA. Ditto for athletes, musicians, etc. When the Patriots play a game in California, California gets to tax the game check all the non-Cali players earn that day.

    Technically that's true for peons like us but (1) California (or whatever state) has no idea when we are in the state and so can't enforce it, and (2) for the vast majority of us, several days' work wouldn't be enough income to be taxable because of exemptions, thresholds, etc.

    OTOH, many states (though I can't say all) have reciprocity agreements. For example, since I sometimes worked in NY while living in CT, I had to pay income taxes to NY (as a non-resident) but could count them against my CT taxes.

    Yes, the same thing. NFL players only receive their "normal" salary paychecks during the season so it's pretty easy to allocate to the tax jurisdiction of each game location.

    This is good that Hernandez is working out with Brady. Hopefully Edelman and Welker will be there as well..

    It was nothing to do with his character, it had everything to do with his testing positive for marijuana. I still will never understand why they test for THC, if I was a football player I would WANT the opposing team to be smoking it up all the time. It is not a performance enhancer in any sense of the word, so who cares who is smoking it and who isn't? No one would even know if they didn't test them for it and then announce to the world that they tested positive.

    If teams want to test their players for personal reasons then they should, but for the NFL to test and punish for it the same as someone using Steroids, HGH or other PEDs is ridiculous.
