Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was already being bashed just about everywhere for his actions when he removed Mason Rudolph’s helmet just to hit him with it, but he received another wave of criticism when he accused Mason Rudolph of calling him a racial slur days after the fact.
Garrett’s allegations came during the NFL’s appeals process and the blowback from it was immense as folks accused him of race baiting due to this not coming out beforehand.
Former NFL Pro Bowl quarterback Michael Vick was recently stopped by TMZ Sports and asked about the situation. Vick explained that Garrett should’ve said something from jump, because now people don’t want to hear what he has to say.
“He should have just said it from the beginning,” the NFL legend tells TMZ Sports … “Now, it’s like everybody pointing fingers. No one wants to hear that now.”
“At the end of the day, hopefully everybody learned from this,” Vick said.
Garrett received a suspension that will have him out for the remainder of the season, while Rudolph got a $50K fine.
