Article Summary:

Former Dolphins coach Brian Flores claims that team owner Stephen Ross offered Flores $100,000 per loss in 2019. Former Browns coach Hue Jackson has made similar claims, and the executive director of Jackson’s foundation claims that she has documentation to show that Jackson, former Browns executive Sashi Brown, current Browns executive Paul DiPodesta, and current G.M. Andrew Berry received bonuses in 2016 and 2017, seasons that culminated in the Browns “Earning” the first overall pick in the next draft. How long until one or more committees send a letter to Commissioner Roger Goodell seeking information about the claim that multiple teams TRIED TO LOSE GAMES?

Although the incentive for bad teams to lose games in order to enhance draft status has hidden in plain sight for decades, specific and troubling allegations of ownership acting on that temptation are unprecedented. If it’s proven that Stephen Ross or Jimmy Haslam or any other owner incentivized losing, that owner should immediately be forced to sell.
