The drama around Jon Gruden continues, even after he left the team weeks ago. According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, Gruden is now suing the NFL and Roger Goodell as he believes the league forced him to leave.

According to Pelissero, Gruden is seeking damages after he believes the NFL leaked emails from an investigation looking into the Washington Football Team and potential misconduct.

Gruden claims there was significant character assassination from the league and would like to be paid his full salary from the Raiders. He believes the league leaked these emails during the season to create maximum damage to him and the Raiders.

Here is the full tweet thread by Pelissero on Gruden and the NFL’s upcoming legal battle:

Gruden originally signed a 10-year, $100 million deal with the Raiders back in 2018. It will be fascinating to see if anything comes from this legal battle between the former head coach and the NFL.
