Jon Gruden is no longer an NFL head coach, as he resigned from his position with the Las Vegas Raiders following his email scandal.
The veteran NFL head coach made racist and homophobic comments, among others, in emails that were uncovered as part of the league’s investigation into the Washington Football Team.
More problematic emails continue to leak, too.
According to a new report, Gruden had some blunt things to say about former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick during his national anthem protest.
“They suspend people for taking amino acids they should cut this f—,” Gruden reportedly wrote about Kaepernick.
So…..we’re talking a ton of emails well beyond Gruden. Starting to understand why the NFL wanted to settle with Kaepernick on his collusion case.

Gruden was reportedly emailing with former Washington Football Team president Bruce Allen. When Allen reportedly told Gruden that he expressed his outrage with Kaepernick, Gruden allegedly responded: “good for you.”
At the time, Gruden was working as an analyst for ESPN.
Kaepernick has not played in the National Football League since 2016. He began kneeling for the national anthem that season. Kaepernick last played for the San Francisco 49ers, but hasn’t played in the league since.
Gruden, meanwhile, is likely done in the National Football League, as it’s difficult to imagine another team hiring him.
