NFL will provide benefits to Jovan Belcher's daughter
By JonTayler on Dec 4, 8:48p

Three-month-old Zoey will receive yearly payments for the next 18 to 23 years of her life as part of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement.

The daughter of former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, who committed suicide on Dec. 1 after murdering his girlfriend, will be financially supported by the NFL.

Three-month-old Zoey is the daughter of Belcher and Kasandra Perkins, whom Belcher shot early on Saturday before killing himself at the Chiefs' practice facility. She was at home when Belcher killed Perkins, then bent over her body to apologize and kiss her on the forehead. After that, Belcher kissed Zoey as well before fleeing the house.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, as part of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, Zoey's guardian or her estate will receive $9,000 per month over the next four years, which amounts to $109,000 per year. In the fifth year, she'll receive $48,000. From then on, she'll be given $52,000 per year each year until she turns 18 or 23, depending on whether or not she goes to college.

According to multiple media sources, the relationship between Belcher and Perkins had been strained, with constant arguments over things like money. The Chiefs were reportedly providing counseling for Belcher.

Zoey is currently in the custody of her grandmother, Belcher's mother.

I am sure the gun manufacturer will chip in a bunch as well.

This is nice and all, it really is...

but I guess I just don't understand it?

Why does she get 1.3M because her dad was a murderer and killed her mom? I'm glad this little girl will be financially sound and at least have a great trust fund set up for her for when she turns 18 but...I just, I guess I don't see why?

I'm not trying to be insensitive I'm just wondering why she's entitled to this money from the NFL?

Does this make sense or do I just sound like an asshole?

Javon made $2M this year...I assume he didn't spend it all.

I was just figuring one of the grandparents would be given custody and a trust with any remaining assets from the estate (and I assume the man wasn't broke) + whatever he had left on his contract this year would be set up for the girl for when she turned 18 to get some sort of a lump sum - yearly child support from the estate for the grandparent with custody.

Not quite sure why the NFL pays 18 years more than a lot of two family incomes bring home per year.

It's in the CBA, so it's effectively built-in life insurance.

I wonder if Belcher was smart enough to have an life insurance policy too. Eh, who am I kidding...

really?

I'm not even trying to be an asshole or spam or anything.

I'm just curious as to why she's getting 18 years of payments from the NFL.

It just doesn't make sense to me, cool or not cool. I just don't get it.

My guess is that's why it's in there. A lot of players probably aren't savvy enough to get life insurance when they're that young.
