At this point, we wouldn’t put it past Dan Snyder to do something like this.
While they continue to deal with the fallout from an NFL investigation into workplace culture, the Washington Football Team decided to randomly announce they would retire late safety Sean Taylor’s No. 21 jersey Sunday. Taylor died in November 2007 after being shot during a robbery attempt at his Florida home. He was 24.
The news came amid leaked emails from the NFL’s investigation into Washington, which led to the resignation of Raiders head coach Jon Gruden. many people saw right through what the team was doing, and soon they would have to speak on the situation.
Sunday came and the day became more about Jackson Mahomes dancing on Sean Taylor’s number than the man and his family that was in attendance.
For that reason, a social media post is going viral that the suggests owner Dan Snyder paid Jackson Mahomes to create controversy to take everybody’s attention off those emails.
“…realizing Dan Snyder paid Jackson Mahomes to do this to make him the bad guy to distract from what evereyones saying about the WFT emails”
..Really makes you think, but it’s not likely.
Last Monday, the New York Times published emails, from 2011 through 2018, that exposed Gruden’s use of racist, homophobic and misogynistic language. Many of the emails were sent to Bruce Allen, then the GM for Washington.
Gruden has since stepped down. Emails also exposed Adam Schfter for shady journalism practices as well.
It seems everybody s getting in trouble except for the Washington Football Team.
