Brian Flores claims he refused NFL’s non-disclosure agreement for offer of ‘millions of dollars’

Recently-fired coach Brian Flores, who filed a lawsuit against the NFL alleging racial discrimination in its hiring and firing of coaches, said this week that the organization offered him millions of dollars to sign a non-disclosure agreement, which he refused, that would effectively “silence” him.

As part of the lawsuit filed by Flores in January, Flores alleges Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered him a $100,000 bonus for each loss in order to improve the team’s draft position at the end of the season. He also claims Ross attempted to get him to help recruit a quarterback from another team, in violation of NFL rules.

Flores told HBO’s Bryant Gumble on “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” that he refused to sign the non-disclosure agreement because he knew it would prevent him from speaking out against the nefarious practices within the NFL. “I think just signing that separation agreement would have really silenced me,” he told Gumble.

The dollar amount offered to Flores by the NFL for signing the NDA remains undisclosed, but an attorney for Flores who was present for the interview said it was “millions of dollars.”
