In the lawsuit former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores has filed against the NFL and several NFL franchises, he claimed the Dolphins paid him to lose games intentionally.
Another former NFL head coach is claiming the same thing, as Hue Jackson has claimed that when he was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, they paid him to lose games as well.
Flores claims that current Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered to pay him $100,000 for each loss, as the team was trying to get the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Jackson was the Browns head coach from 2016-2018 and went 1-31 before he was fired in 2018 after starting 2-5-1. When someone on social media said that Jackson wasn’t getting $100,000 like Flores was offered, he doubled down on his claims.
Jackson was hired back in December to take over as the Grambling State head coach.
What will come of this remains to be seen. If these claims have any merit to them, the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns respective owners could be in some serious trouble.
