Zoey, the three-month old daughter of Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins will be taken care of financially by the NFL. From KCTV5:
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 she goes to college.
The kid lost her mom and dad, but she is going to have a serious chance. It should go without saying, but hopefully the money is put to good use.
