Patriot fans believe Goodell will swoop in and void the contract alleviating the 7.5 million cap hit

"Goodell does have such powers.

Goodell can nullify the contract and the cap hit.

Seems to be a lot of gray area about whether Pats can get signing bonus back and cap relief. From NFL Constitution:
"Whenever the Commissioner, after notice and hearing, decides that an owner, shareholder, partner or holder of an interest in a member club, or any player, coach, officer, director, or employee thereof, or an officer, employee or official of the League has either violated the Constitution and Bylaws of the League or has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football, then the Commissioner shall have complete authority to:

B) Cancel any contract or agreement of such person with the League or with any member thereof"

"Goodell has the power to erase the cap charges"

Why? Because they are the Patriots
