During a recent interview with journalist Bryant Gumbel, former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores claimed that team owner Stephen Ross asked him to sign an NDA.
"I think just signing that separation agreement would have really silenced me," Flores said in a clip "Real Sports" posted to its Twitter account.

Earlier this month, Flores sued the National Football League and three teams - the Dolphins, Denver Broncos, and New York Giants - alleging discrimination and racism in hiring practices.
Last month, the Dolphins fired Flores after leading the team to a 24-25 record over three years.
In his lawsuit, Flores alleges that after he was fired, he was interviewed with the Giants for its head coaching position when the organization already knew it would hire Brian Daboll.
The league has since hired former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to defend them against the class-action lawsuit.
