Carl Nassib Takes Personal Day To Process Anti-Gay Gruden Emails

Las Vegas Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock addressed the press today regarding the resignation of former head coach Jon Gruden after a trove of emails over several years revealed he had a very casual relationship with the homophobic slur “faggot.”

Mayock told reporters defensive end Carl Nassib, the only out gay player in the NFL, requested a personal day today to process the events of the past few days. The request was granted.

Mayock added that he and Nassib have been meeting one on one and plan to meet again later today.

As I reported yesterday, Gruden resigned from the Raiders after seven years of emails, from 2011-2018, revealed Gruden used homophobic, racist and misogynistic remarks in several emails to NFL officials while he was a lead analyst for ESPN.
