These emails were sent while Gruden was working for ESPN as a color analyst during “Monday Night Football,” according to the report.

The NY Times continued that Gruden and several other men allegedly shared revealing photos of women including several NFL cheerleaders.

Other emails reportedly use derogatory and homophobic names for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and players who protested during the playing of the national anthem.

At this time the Raiders have not commented on this new email content.
