John Dorsey shares interesting take on Browns’ Myles Garrett incident
John Dorsey has something to say about this: Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was suspended for the final six games of the 2019 NFL regular season, stemming from an incident on Nov. 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Garrett, the first pick from the 2017 draft, made contact with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph using a helmet.
Dorsey, the now-former Browns general manger who was dismissed on New Year’s Eve in 2019, is revealing his unbiased thoughts on the Myles Garrett incident after officially divorced from the organization. In particular, Dorsey is sharing information on Garrett’s claim that Rudolph used a racial slur, which provoked the defensive player to attack the opposing team’s quarterback in a dead ball scrum between the sides.
“Correct,” Dorsey told Nate Ulrich in the Akron Beacon Journal. “It’s the truth.”
Rudolph was fined $50,000 by the NFL; however, the league suspended Myles Garrett (indefinite) and Browns teammate Larry Ogunjobi (one game) and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey (two games).
“We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms,” Browns general manager Andrew Berry said via a statement released by the team. “We know he is grateful to be reinstated, eager to put the past behind him and continue to evolve and grow as a leader. We look forward to having his strong positive presence back as a teammate, player and person in our community.”
Myles Garrett, 24, will enter his fourth season in 2020, having evaded possible criminal charges from striking Rudolph.
