CelebNSports247.com reports that Steelers’ Mike Tomlin is now speaking out against Myles Garrett’s accusations and defending Steelers Mason Rudolph.
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin came out in defense of Mason Rudolph on Monday after Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett doubled down on his claim that the quarterback used a racial slur against him to spark November’s helmet-swinging incident.
Tomlin appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” telling host Stephen A. Smith that he was frustrated with the accusations by Myles Garrett.
Mike Tomlin said:
The most recent one this past weekend, I took offense to it, to be quite honest with you. I fully support Mason Rudolph. We, as an organization, fully support Mason Rudolph. To be quite honest with you, we were hacked off by what we saw this weekend. I think [Rudolph’s] reputation needs to be defended and defended aggressively.
Tomlin said Monday:
These accusations are serious, not only in terms of Mason Rudolph’s character, but his professional pursuits. Nobody on that field, as a member of the Cleveland Browns or the Pittsburgh Steelers, corroborated what was said by Myles Garrett. … At no point during that piece this weekend was that stated.
It was presented as a he-said-he-said situation, even to this day. I think the National Football League office was very clear that they launched a thorough investigation among all parties involved, including interviewing the people and the analysis of technology that was on that field, and found no evidence of Myles’ allegation, and I think that should be stated.
Garrett reiterated Mason Used a Racial Slur:
Last week, Garrett reiterated the claim that Rudolph used a slur against him. He said Rudolph called “me a ‘stupid N-word,” sparking the brawl in which he ripped the quarterback’s helmet off and hit him in the head with it.
Garrett was suspended for the remainder of the 2019 season and was reinstated earlier in February. And Mason got a slap on the wrist.
If you recall all the black players were reprimanded, fined or suspended while the white players were all given a slap on the wrists.
