The NFL released a statement claiming Brian Flores’ claims of racism against the league are “without merits.”
The NFL, which is still doing clean up from the Colin Kaepernick situation and has recently faced criticism about its record with minority coaches and front office staff, predictably shot down any notion of racism throughout its front offices.
“The NFL and our clubs are deeply committed to ensuring equitable employment practices,” the league said in a statement. “We will defend against these claims, which are without merit.”
The league had to release something, but this statement will do nothing to curb what is likely to be a protracted legal battle.
