Jon Gruden Can Completely Screw Over Antonio Brown Due to Recorded Phone Call

UPDATE

The producer of Antonio Brown's video claims they got Jon Gruden's approval to record their phone call. Meaning AB is in the clear...for now.

One of the many idiotic things former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown did before being released was record a phone call with head coach Jon Gruden and then post a video with the audio included.

Not only did Gruden not know his call was being recorded, but if he wants to press charges against Brown, he certainly can because it's against the law in the state of California to not have consent from both parties.

If Brown were convicted, he could serve a maximum of one year in jail.

Now, Brown would likely not serve any jail time, but a criminal investigation and likely suspension by the NFL would certainly be payback for Gruden in the Raiders, who were humiliated by AB during his brief stint in Oakland.

As we know, the NFL doesn't need a player to be convicted and charged to suspend them (i.e. Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension in 2017).

There isn't any indication that Gruden is so angry and upset that he would go this route, but if wants to screw over AB, he has the legal standing to make this happen.
