Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores shocked the NFL world when he announced a lawsuit against the NFL, particularly taking aim at the Dolphins, New York Giants, and Denver Broncos earlier this month.
A major claim in the lawsuit was made against Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who Flores says offered him $100,000 for every game that the Dolphins lost in 2019, an offer that Flores denied taking.
Ross has since denied these claims, but the NFL announced that they will conduct their own investigation against him. The consequences of being found guilty by the league could be as serious as Ross losing his team.
Up until now, it has been mostly a battle of words between Flores and Ross with no real evidence, but it appears that Flores may want to help the NFL in their investigation with real evidence.
In an interview that is set to air on Real Sports with Brian Gumbel, Flores’ attorney Doug Wigdor said that he and his legal team “definitely have corroborating evidence” to prove his claims against Ross. Wigdor added that the evidence will be shared to aid in the NFL’s investigation, which is separate from the lawsuit.
It will be interesting to see if the evidence will ever be shared with the public. However, if it is strong enough, it could certainly lead to Ross being forced to sell the team.
Flores was recently named the new senior defensive assistant and linebackers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers but has remained adamant that he will carry on with the lawsuit.
