Dolphins owner Stephen Ross responds to Brian Flores' allegations: 'False, malicious and defamatory'

Ross, 81, said he takes “great personal exception to these malicious attacks,” according to a statement obtained by NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe. He and the team will also “cooperate fully” with a likely investigation from the NFL, per the statement.

“With regards to the allegations being made by Brian Flores, I am a man of honor and integrity and cannot let them stand without responding,” Ross added in the statement. “I take great personal exception to these malicious attacks, and the truth must be known.”

In the lawsuit, Flores, 40, alleged Ross incentivized him to lose games during the 2019 season (to get better draft picks) by offering to pay him $ 100,000 per loss. The Dolphins owner definitively denied this allegation and others concerning racial discrimination in his statement.
