Freddie Kitchens: I’m embarrassed and Myles Garrett is embarrassed

  Freddie Kitchens: I’m embarrassed and Myles Garrett is embarrassed Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens did not in any way excuse the actions of defensive end Myles Garrett after Thursday night’s game. Kitchens said Garrett ripping off Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph‘s helmet and bashing him over the head with it is far out side the bounds of what the Browns will tolerate. “Of course that’s [more]Kitchens said Garrett ripping off Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph‘s helmet and bashing him over the head with it is far out side the bounds of what the Browns will tolerate.

During Browns defensive end Myles Garrett’s appeal for the indefinite suspension handed down after he removed Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet and whacked him over the head with it at the end of Cleveland’s win over the Steelers on Nov. 14, Garrett testified that Rudolph used a racial slur against Garrett.

The NFL released a statement in which it said that there was no evidence of this.

“Mason vehemently denies the report of being accused of using a racial slur during the incident Thursday night in Cleveland,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten said in a statement. “He will not discuss this accusation any further, and his focus remains on preparation for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.”

Browns apologize to Mason Rudolph, call Myles Garrett’s actions 'unacceptable'

  Browns apologize to Mason Rudolph, call Myles Garrett’s actions 'unacceptable' Players often defend their teammates when commenting on an incident like the one we saw Thursday, but the immediate reaction from Mayfield and others proves just how far Garrett crossed the line. Garrett will likely appeal his suspension, but he stands very little chance of winning. He won’t really have much to compare the situation to, as hitting an opponent with a helmet is a dangerous and unprecedented move. There has even been talk that Rudolph could pursue legal action against Garrett. Even if that is unlikely to happen, Garrett’s suspension will almost certainly be upheld.

Mason Rudolph is admitting he shouldn' t have tried ripping Myles Garrett ' s helmet off his head during last week's brawl but is adamant he didn' t say anything to Rudolph claims he said nothing. Mason Rudolph addressed the Thursday incident in a prepared statement and brief Q&A before walk through.

Myles Garrett (95) and Mason Rudolph (2) confront each other during last Thursday’ s Steelers-Browns game. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has denied reports he used a racial slur prior to a brawl The NFL cares more about optics than actions in its fight against dirty play.

Timothy M. Younger, Rudolph’s attorney, said this in a statement: “According to ESPN, in his appeal, Myles Garrett falsely asserted that Mason Rudolph uttered a racial slur toward him, prior to swinging a helmet at Mason’s uncovered head, in a desperate attempt to mitigate his suspension. This is a lie. This false allegation was never asserted by Garrett in the aftermath of the game, never suggested prior to the hearing, and conspicuously absent in the apology published by the Browns and adopted by Garrett.

“The malicious use of this wild and unfounded allegation is an assault on Mason’s integrity, which is far worse than the physical assault witnessed on Thursday. This is reckless and shameful. We will have no further comment.”

Mason Rudolph takes responsibility for role in Myles Garrett fight

  Mason Rudolph takes responsibility for role in Myles Garrett fight Rudolph is reportedly facing a fine from the NFL, and he said he will accept whatever punishment the league sees fit. While he may have technically “started” the altercation, there’s a reason even Garrett’s own teammates and organization have not even considered coming to his defense.

In his appeal hearing, Myles Garrett said Mason Rudolph called him a racial slur right before the two brawled. Does Rudolph have a case against Garrett for slander? Garrett ’ s denunciation was offered as a means of explaining why he would abruptly use Rudolph ’s helmet as a weapon and risk

Garrett’s suspension was upheld, and he will not play through the rest of the 2019 season, however long that lasts for the 4-6 Browns. However, the reaction to Garrett’s claim was just getting started.

“I just don’t see Myles as someone who would lie or do anything like that,” Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said. “At this point, it is what it is. We’re all just kind of waiting and just hoping that justice is served.”

Jake Trotter, ESPN’s Browns reporter, asked Baker Mayfield and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson about the accusation.



Richardson’s response is especially interesting, as he was on the field when the incident happened, while Mayfield — who was obviously on the sideline — would have only hearsay evidence to go with.

Was Garrett trying to save his own skin, or is there something to this? I went back and looked at the play in question, and I have serious doubts. I think Rudolph did throw one particular expletive during the play, but it didn’t appear to be directed at Garrett.

As Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi pushes Rudolph to the ground, cursory lip-reading shows an expletive that starts with B. Not necessarily racial in nature, but also not something I’d want to hurl at the 6-foot-3, 305-pound Ogunjobi. That said, such language is not uncommon during a fracas on the field.

Going back to the progression of the actual play, we can see Garrett slamming Rudolph to the ground, Rudolph trying to pull Garrett’s helmet off, Garrett pulling Rudolph’s helmet off, offensive linemen Matt Feiler (No 71) and David DeCastro (No. 66) coming in to intervene, and referee Clete Blakeman coming in to break the fight up and throw the flag. Unless Rudolph used this slur while he was trying to pull Garrett’s helmet off, Blakeman likely would have heard it, and there’s no way an NFL referee would have let that slide.

Then, we have the post-fight hangout, where Rudolph (No. 2) is standing alone on the field, and Browns defensive lineman Devaroe Lawrence (No. 99) getting Garrett off the field. Had anyone else heard Rudolph say something of that nature, one assumes there would be a line of players eager to discuss it with him.

There’s also the matter of Garrett not saying anything about this until his appeal hearing. In the modern news cycle, it’s difficult to imagine this story not getting out; especially considering the fact that if Garrett or one of his teammates had relayed it, it would have gone some distance in explaining (although not excusing) his actions.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported on Thursday that in making their determination, the league went though all available audio of the game, including miked-up players, and the reports officials file after each game. In the league’s determination, nothing was seen or heard to be a mitigating factor.

That’s not to say that Rudolph didn’t say something; the evidence we have is circumstantial. But based on what we know and what we can see, it’s difficult to believe.

NFL’s conclusion on Myles Garrett’s claim of a slur overlooks one key piece of evidence

  NFL’s conclusion on Myles Garrett’s claim of a slur overlooks one key piece of evidence Regarding Browns defensive end Myles Garrett‘s claim that Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph uttered a racial slur before last Thursday night’s melee, the NFL has said, “We looked into it and found no such evidence.” Actually, there is evidence. The evidence comes from the version of the events shared by Garrett. At a time when so many inaccurate things are being said by folks who know better about “hearsay,” Garrett hearing Rudolph say a slur becomes direct evidence that Rudolph used a slur.The more accurate explanation would be that the league found no corroboration of Garrett’s claim. But that doesn’t make Garrett’s claim inaccurate.

N.F.L. appeals officers on Thursday upheld the indefinite suspension for Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett for hitting Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with a helmet during a game last week.
