The Miami Dolphins could be in the middle of a storm as well. Brian Flores the former Dolphins head coach exposed the owner Stephen Ross in a lawsuit claiming the owner wanted Flores to violate the NFL’s tampering rules.
Here is what was in his lawsuit:
After the end of the 2019 season, Mr. Ross began to pressure Mr. Flores to recruit a prominent quarterback in violation of League tampering rules. Mr. Flores repeatedly refused to comply with these improper directives. Undeterred, in the winter of 2020, Mr. Ross invited Mr. Flores onto a yacht for lunch. Shortly after he arrived, Mr. Ross told Mr. Flores that the prominent quarterback was “conveniently” arriving at the marina. Obviously, Mr. Ross had attempted to “set up” a purportedly impromptu meeting between Mr. Flores and the prominent quarterback. Mr. Flores refused the meeting and left the yacht immediately. After the incident, Mr. Flores was treated with disdain and held out as someone who was noncompliant and difficult to work with.
I am not sure what quarterback that was, but everyone on the internet was assuming the quarterbcak was Deshaun Watson. According to Joe Schad, that was not the quarterback though…
Either way, the Dolphins could be in hot water as well now with the recent details of this class-action lawsuit.
