While we respect Jon Grudens work on the field, his actions are contrary to our core values as an organisation. He will no longer be a member of the Buccaneers Ring of Honor.

Gruden resigned as head coach of the Raiders on Monday following the release of more racist, homophobic, and misogynistic emails.
