Responding to Gruden’s resignation, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr told reporters Wednesday that “I love that guy, I hate sin.”

Carr said: “No one is perfect, if we just started opening up everyone’s private emails and texts, people would start to sweat a little … and see what happens.

“You hate the action. You hate it. You shouldn’t like it, but you love that person and I love that person.”

The team’s general manager, Mike Mayock, also told reporters that Carl Naseeb, First active NFL player to come out as gay, requested a personal day this week.
