1. Las Vegas Raiders (2021)

The Raiders went through several toxic crises in 2021.  First, head coach Jon Gruden’s disgraceful emails emerged and stunned the league. His racist, sexist, and homophobic language sealed the end of his career in Vegas and most likly. Then, receiver and former top draft pick Henry Ruggs III crashed his Corvette into another vehicle, killing the 23-year-old female occupant in the process. It was a harrowing situation.

Of course, human tragedy is the worst element of this. But it was also a major blow on the field. Ruggs was having a breakout season before he ruined his entire life. He faced 20 years in jail after his actions led to another person’s death. Next, they released another former first-round pick from 2020 in cornerback Damon Arnette. A wild video showed Arnette waving guns in a manic manner (via Sporting News) while issuing death threats to an internet troll.
