Myles Garrett: Mason Rudolph’s racial slur ignited helmet attack

By Post Sports Desk

Myles Garrett’s appeal of his indefinite suspension included a claim that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur before their brawl , ESPN.com reported.

Garrett is trying to have his ban reduced after he swung his helmet wildly at the Steelers quarterback in the final seconds of the Browns’ 21-7 win over Pittsburgh last Thursday.

Rudolph strongly denied the accusation, both through the team and his attorney.

“This is a lie. This false allegation was never asserted by Garrett in the aftermath of the game, never suggested prior to the hearing, and conspicuously absent in the apology published by the Browns and adopted by Garrett,” his attorney Timothy M. Younger said.

“The malicious use of this wild and unfounded allegation is an assault on Mason’s integrity which is far worse than the physical assault witnessed on Thursday. This is reckless and shameful. We will have no further comment.”

Mason Rudolph isn’t taking Myles Garrett’s racial-slur accusation well

Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward came to teammate Mason Rudolph’s defense on Thursday.

During his appeal hearing with the NFL on Wednesday, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett claimed Rudolph’s use of a racial slur was what instigated their fight last week. Heyward said that after finding out, the Pittsburgh quarterback went out of his way to tell him it wasn’t true.

“He was pretty distraught and said, ‘I did not say that,’” Heyward told reporters on Thursday. “I think we knew that using that as an excuse is not right.”

The league says it looked into Garrett’s allegations that Rudolph used a racial slur “and found no such evidence.” Rudolph was scheduled to speak to reporters on Thursday, but the team released a statement from Rudolph denying Garrett’s accusations instead. Before Garrett’s claims became public, Rudolph claimed on Wednesday that he didn’t say anything to the Browns star.

“Definitely didn’t say anything that escalated it,” Rudolph said.

Garrett, who was suspended indefinitely — and at least for the rest of the season — for ripping Rudolph’s helmet off and bashing him over the head with it, had his appeal denied. He took to Twitter on Thursday to stand by his claim.

“I know what I heard,” he wrote. “Whether my opponent’s comment was born out of frustration or ignorance, I cannot say. But his actions do not excuse my lack of restraint in the moment, and I truly regret the impact this has had on the league, the Browns and our devoted fans.”

Steelers offensive lineman Matt Feiler was right near the scuffle when it first broke out, and he said he didn’t hear any sort of racial slur from his quarterback.

“I didn’t hear anything like that,” he said. “Mason’s not that kind of guy. He wouldn’t say anything like that.”

Some Pittsburgh players were suspicious of the timing of Garrett’s accusations as well.

“If that would’ve been said, you would’ve known about it Thursday night after the game, not a week later when he’s trying to appeal,” backup quarterback Devin Hodges said. “That guy’s got everything on the line for him and he’s trying to get anything back.”

Immediately after the fight, which occurred at the end of the Browns’ 21-7 win on Nov. 14, Garrett was asked whether Rudolph had said something to prompt his violent reaction.

“You’ve got to go look at it. I’m not going to comment on it,” he said.

Some players on the Steelers learned of Garrett’s accusations against Rudolph from coach Mike Tomlin, who reportedly gathered them together at the end of a recent practice. Heyward said he found out on TV in the team’s weight room.

While none of Garrett’s teammates have acknowledged hearing a slur from Rudolph, many Cleveland players say they don’t think he would lie about something like that.

“I didn’t know nothing about it, nah,” defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson said. “I wouldn’t doubt it, though. Had to be something to get him out of his body. That’s not Myles.”

“I just don’t see Myles as someone who would lie or do anything like that,” Odell Beckham Jr. agreed.

Browns safety Damarious Randall admitted he was suspicious of Rudolph saying something to provoke such a reaction from his teammate.

“I’ve never known Myles as a liar,” Randall said. “I’ve never known him to get that out of character, especially on the field. When it first happened, that was my initial thought. Obviously, I wasn’t out there. I hadn’t heard anything from nobody about it. I’ve been trying to move on to the next week and support Myles as much as I can.”
