Jim Trotter might be going away, but has no plans on doing it quietly.
Veteran journalists Jim Trotter and Rachel Bonnetta were among the first to announce they had been let go by the NFL Network. It’s officially Jim Trotter’s last day with NFL Media and he is going out with a bang.
Trotter tweeted on Friday morning: “I’ve thought a lot about Brian Flores’ lawsuit against @nfl for alleged discriminatory hiring practices. His case is the micro. The macro is the culture within the NFL, including owner behavior that was covered up by the league-owned newsroom. Stay tuned. More to come.”
Trotter suggested that his repeated questions to Commissioner Roger Goodell about diversity, equity, and inclusion in the NFL Media newsroom played a role in the decision to not get his contract renewed.
Earlier this week, Goodell rejected that premise.
“I wasn’t part of that decision and actually was just made aware of it about 10 minutes before I walked in here,” Goodell told reporters at the league meetings in Arizona. “So, no, I don’t believe that had anything to do with it.”
Now, it appears that Trotter might be angling for a lawsuit in the future.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
