    Paranoia has set in within the Las Vegas Raiders organization and, according to reports, owner Mark Davis believes that the NFL “is out to get him” in the wake of the Jon Gruden email scandal. 

    Gruden resigned as head coach on Monday night following a bombshell report that uncovered troves of racist, misogynistic and homophobic comments he made in emails to former Washington team president Bruce Allen between 2010 and 2018.
