Alejandro Narciso, the man who produced the video clip Brown posted on YouTube that featured some of the receiver’s phone conversation with Gruden, told “The Dan Le Batard Show” on Monday that Brown reached out to Gruden before making it public. Narciso said he expected Gruden to nix the idea, but the coach responded shortly after with a series of text messages saying he loved the idea.
