Raiders Give Time Off To Carl Nassib Following Jon Gruden’s Email Leak

When Jon Gruden’s disturbing emails leaked, many were wondering how Raiders defensive lineman Carl Nassib would react.

Along with being misogynistic and racist, Gruden’s emails were constantly homophobic, even throwing some derogatory terms at Michael Sam – who became the first openly gay drafted player.

Prior to the season, Carl Nassib came out, making him the only openly homosexual player in the NFL.

On Tuesday, Raiders GM Mike Mayock revealed that he has spoken with Nassib frequently over the last few days. And that he was currently taking some time off to ‘process’ the situation.

Carl Nassib will now be playing for a new coach when he returns, as Jon Gruden turned in his resignation following the second wave of awful emails were leaked.

But after all the time Nassib spent with Gruden, it’s more than acceptable that he just needs to take some time to himself.

Carl Nassib undoubtedly knew he was putting himself out there when he made the courageous decision to come out as homosexual. But being indirectly mocked by someone you played for and respected can’t be what he was expecting.

Not only does Jon Gruden need to be kept out of the NFL. But the entire old-school culture and way of tahinking needs to be altered.
