NFL general counsel Jeff Pash and former WFT executive Bruce Allen had a close relationship, according to emails collected during the NFL’s workplace misconduct investigation of the Washington franchise, The New York Times and Wall Street Journal reported.
The correspondence is among 650,000 emails collected in the NFL’s investigation.
That trove of emails helped lead to Jon Gruden’s resignation as Las Vegas Raiders coach earlier this week after reports from the Times and Journal showed he had used misogynistic and anti-gay language and had used a racist comment to refer to NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith. Gruden was employed by ESPN as the lead analyst for Monday Night Football when he sent the emails over a seven-year period.
Earlier this week, the NFLPA said it planned to request that the NFL release the remainder of the 650,000 emails reviewed as part of the investigation.
