Myles Garrett doubles down that Mason Rudolph called him the N-WORD in interview with ESPN

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett again alleged that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph used a racial slur toward him just prior to the brawl at the end of their November game.


"He called me the N-word," Garrett told Outside The Lines' Mina Kimes during an interview that airs Thursday night on SportsCenter. "He called me a 'stupid N-word.'"

The NFL suspended Garrett indefinitely for ripping Rudolph's helmet off and hitting him in the head with it during the Browns' 21-7 win on Nov. 14. The incident ended up costing him the final six games of the regular season and roughly $1.2 million in pay, plus a fine of $45,623.

Garrett was reinstated by the league on Wednesday.

The star defensive player first a*serted during his appeals hearing for the suspension that Rudolph incited him with a racial slur, ESPN reported previously. Garrett later said he never intended for the accusation to become public, but added: "I know what I heard."

An NFL spokesman said the league "found no such evidence" that Rudolph used the slur and upheld the suspension.

Rudolph has called the allegation "totally untrue."

"I couldn't believe it," the quarterback said Nov. 24. "I couldn't believe he would go that route after the fact."

In Thursday's interview with ESPN, Garrett recounted a different version of events and blamed Rudolph for starting the f*ght that led to the discipline of 33 total players and fines amounting to $732,422.

"When he said it, it kind of sparked something, but I still tried to let it go and still walk away," Garrett said. "But once he came back, it kind of reignited the situation. And not only have you escalated things past what they needed to be with such little time in the game left, now you're trying to re-engage and start a f*ght again. It's definitely not entirely his fault, it's definitely both parties doing something that we shouldn't have been doing.

"I don't say the N-word, whether it's with 'a' [or] 'er.' To me personally, just shouldn't be said, and whether it's by family, friends, anyone. I don't want to use it because I don't want [people to] find that appropriate around me for anyone to use."

The Steelers ran a final play with eight seconds left on the clock. Rudolph initially tussled with Garrett on the ground, then charged at him after Garrett forcibly removed Rudolph's helmet. At that point, Garrett slugged Rudolph over the head with it.

The league fined the Browns and the Steelers $250,000 each. Without Garrett, Cleveland's defense cratered down the stretch en route to a 6-10 finish.

Reached for comment, the Steelers on Thursday deferred to their November statement, which read in part, "Mason vehemently denies the report of being accused of using a racial slur during the incident."

Rudolph's agent and attorney, Tim Younger, was unavailable for comment Thursday.

I believe him. Myles is a calm dude off the field, obviously that changes on the football field, but I don’t think he has a history of on field antics like that. Something had to of triggered him to unleash that type of anger.

People were yelling n sh*t. Plus, other than the people involved directly (Garrett and Rudolph) who else would say they heard it if they werenít 100% sure.

Has Garrett ever acted like that on a football field? Iím genuinely asking. Based on Garrettís history (what I know of it) these actions are way out of character for him.

By that logic, when has Rudolph said or done anything racist? Him dropping n bombs is also “out of character”.

Not to mention no football player is dumb enough to do that in today’s climate when there’s always a mic around and you are surrounded by black teammates on your own fu*king team.

I think Rudolph sucks and he’s clearly a bi*ch, but nobody is THAT stupid.

True, but given the reasons I’ve already provided along with the fact that he waited quite a bit to come out with these accusations and his teammates didn’t even know anything about it until they came out this reeks of BS, hence all the Smollett comparisons....

With hot stuff like this, I dont need to see any reason....simple common sense dictates that only the two know the truth!

Since we dont really know one way or the other, it's just best to leave things as they are...

Fact that he waited is circumstantial and not 100% proof.

In all fairness I believe it was Larry Ogunjobi who said Myles told him right after the incident that Mason said that. And if I'm remembering correctly didn't the NFL say that Mason himself wasn't mic'd but there were players on the field who were mic'd?

I don't think we'll ever know for sure what was or wasn't said besides the back and forth coming directly from Mason and Myles but as a black man I lean more towards believing Myles because I've personally had situations where white people get upset and that's the first thing that came out of their mouths at me.

You sound like somebody that was waiting for the facts to come out when Smollett was clearly lying.

If you donít know a blatant lie when you hear one, thatís on you.



Also, it isnít just that he waited. Like I said, his teammates didnít even know anything about it. Nobody is going to have all that happen and not at least tell their teammates why they reacted the way they did. That just doesnít happen.

No dummy, smollett sh*t didnt add up from the get go....but bc smollett went awry doesnt mean G was lying too. And what you laid down is what we call circumstantial...meaning he didnt "act" like someone who got called the N word. But legally...just because he didnt act that way is not proof that he is lying...lol

You know what I find funny? If this were a woman lying on a man with similar context people like yourself would see it for what it is.

But since it’s not, your bias is showing.

I have no dog in this f*ght. I like Garrett. I can’t stand the Steelers and Rudolph is a f*g**t.

There are just too many red flags. Dude is lying.
