Steelers QB Mason Rudolph’s lawyer responds to Myles Garrett’s claims of a racial slur

Mason Rudolph, Myles Garrett, Steelers

The Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers faced off on Thursday Night Football in Week 11. While the Browns won the game, it was the fight that happened near the end that dominated the headlines.

Cleveland star Myles Garrett and Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph got into a fight after Garrett brought down Rudolph.

Rudolph tried to rip at Garrett’s helmet, and Garrett responded by ripping off Rudolph’s. It ended with Garrett swinging that helmet at Rudolph’s head.

Not to the surprise of anyone, Garrett was suspended indefinitely. However, it did come as a surprise to some to see Rudolph get off with just a fine.

Now Garrett is claiming that Rudolph used racial slurs towards him, and Rudolph’s lawyer has responded.

If we are being honest, this is probably going to drag on for quite some time. There has not been a fight like this in the NFL in forever. We saw rolling on the ground. We saw groin shots and kicks to the head. And of course, we saw helmets to the head. Now racial slur accusations are being thrown in there as well.

The problem with this is, it’s something we can never 100% know for certain unless there was a mic somewhere in the vicinity that could pick it up.

So what we will get instead is players on Garrett’s side agreeing with him and players on Rudolph’s side agreeing with him. Maybe someone will jump ship once they leave a team, but the argument then will just be that they’re bitter and had issues with that player.

Once again, that brings us back to this entire issue not being resolved for quite some time. We will continue to hear about different little details and we will be reminded of the fight for years to come.

For now, we just have to understand that we’ll be getting new versions of this story for a little bit, from both sides. And we should expect more statements from players and lawyers as we continue to move forward.
