Did Gruden back out of deal with NFL Network?

Jon Did former Bucs coach Jon Gruden back out of a verbal agreement with the NFL Network to take a job on ESPN's Monday Night Football? That's what Sports Illustrated's Peter King is reporting. You can read King's story here.

King wrote "the network had finalized everything but the signature on the paper for Gruden to begin working there immediately. In fact, he was slated to be at NFL Films this week to begin his job full time. But ESPN swooped in, offered Gruden the Monday night seat vacated by Tony Kornheiser (how convenient), and Gruden took it.''
