I didn't see this recently mentioned, but the Phins/Brady/Payton/Flores saga is putting the NFL between a rock and a hard place having to choose between investigating aspects of tampering (in this case I guess Tampa-ing) by Phins owner Ross in attempting to recruit Brady (as far back as 2020 on Ross' yacht with Flores present) and Sean Payton, which then would substantiate Flores claims and aid his lawsuit against the NFL about Rooney rule violations. The Flores suit also is alleged to have been the reasoning behind Brady's short lived retirement, since the Phins long term plan became exposed. The plan basically was for TB to retire from TB and then join the Phins as an executive. At a later date his playing rights would be forced to be traded to the Phins also, then he would unretire and play for Miami under a "proven" coach--Payton--leading to the termination of Flores.
Also recently unearthed from 18 months ago is a Mike Mularkey interview where he states how he regrets being part of the violations that occurred when he was told by the Titan's owner that he was hired, prior to minority candidate interviews, and then watched candidates without a chance be brought in.
Lastly our own Steve Wilks has joined the Flores lawsuit, perhaps making it harder for the NFL to ignore the situation.
