Browns, Steelers players did not hear Mason Rudolph use racial slur

Myles Garrett

If Myles Garrett is telling the truth about Mason Rudolph calling him a racial slur during the ugly fight that broke out last week, it does not appear the Cleveland Browns star is going to have any witnesses.

Garrett met with the NFL to appeal his indefinite suspension on Wednesday, and he reportedly told league officials that he lost his cool after Rudolph used racist language toward him. The quarterback has vehemently denied the allegation, and players from both the Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers have said they did not hear anything racist.

Baker Mayfield and other Browns were asked on Thursday if they heard Rudolph use a racial slur. They said they did not hear it themselves or second-hand from anyone else on the team. Many said this was the first they had heard of the allegation.

Players on the Pittsburgh side seemed equally puzzled.

Garrett was asked following the game if Rudolph said something that inspired him to club the quarterback over the head with a helmet, and he said he was “not going to comment on it.”

There are obviously a lot of questions that need to be answered now. Can the NFL review audio from the game to see if it’s true? One report says no players were mic’d up for the game.

Rudolph’s attorney has already released an extremely strong statement ripping Garrett for the allegation.
