Davis was short and sweet on Wednesday when asked about the team’s former head coach.

“I have no comment. Ask the NFL. They have all the answers,” Davis said ESPN.

Gruden resigned as head coach of the Raiders on Monday night after The New York Times reported the longtime coach made racist, misogynistic and homophobic comments against Commissioner Roger Goodell and the manager NFL Players Association executive, DeMaurice Smith, among others.

NOW THE QUESTION IN NFL IS: DOES GRUDEN REFLECT A BROADER CULTURE?

Gruden, who was in the fourth year of a 10-year, $ 100 million contract, released a statement following the decision to step down on Monday evening. Gruden was also pulled from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ring of Honor on Tuesday.

“I resigned my job as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders,” said Gruden. “I love the Raiders and I don’t want to be a distraction. Thanks to all Raider Nation players, coaches, staff and fans. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone.”
