REPORT: Jon Gruden received images of topless, forced Washington Football Team cheerleaders

If it weren’t bad enough for Jon Gruden that he was forced Into resigning from the Las Vegas Raiders over old e-mails uncovering racist and homophobic slurs by him, he may be involved in something worse.

In a story uncovered by the New York Times, the now former coach of the Raiders may have also received images of cheerleaders of the then-Washington Redskins who were forced to pose topless.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise considering Gruden’s younger brother, Jay Gruden, was the former head coach of the Redskins during the time where a 2018 report uncovered the cheerleaders being forced against their will and being “pimped out” like escorts; something you would see in a Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode.

With today’s “cancel culture” basically forcing Gruden out, does the Washington Football Team, who already had to change the team name, get forced into more drastic action?

Does owner Daniel Snyder get to survive being the owner since all of this happened on his watch as the man who owns the franchise?

He was the one who employed Allen from 2009 until 2016 before he was dismissed. Will Roger Goodell, who was the subject in some of the e-mails between Allen and Gruden, take any action against Washington and specifically, Snyder?

Or will this be swept under the rug and the Washington Football Team have nothing done in what appears to be actions that cross a very close line of human sex trafficking?

Yhese e-mails from 2011 really might have uncovered a lot more than just Gruden’s distasteful thoughts on several races, genders and sexual orientations, as it could lead to others conducting themselves in criminal actions.

Only time will tell.
