NFL finally responds to Jon Grudens laws

It took more than two months, but the NFL has finally responded to the lawsuit in the state of Nevada.Back in November, the former coach filed a lawsuit against Roger Goodell and the NFL alleging "that the defendants selectively leaked Gruden's private correspondence to and in order to harm Gruden's reputation and force him out of his job."In a response to the lawsuit, the NFL vehemently shot down Gruden's claims that the league leaked the Reto Berra Men Jersey emails or intended to do him any harm. Gruden resigned as Raiders coach Oct. 11 . In one email, he used a racial trope to criticize NFL Players A sociation executive director DeMaurice Smith. In another email, he used a profanity to describe Goodell. The NFL is asking the court to dismi s the lawsuit.

Of course, if the NFL gets its way, the case won't Dennis Rasmussen Men Jersey be going anywhere because it will be getting dismi sed. Gruden is seeking an unspecified amount of money in the case, based on seven different claims. The league has said from the beginning that it believes the case is
