Cleveland Browns News: John Dorsey stands up for Myles Garrett’s claim
By Dan Justik
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including John Dorsey standing up for Myles Garrett’s claim about Mason Rudolph.
The Cleveland Browns received good news last week when the league announced Myles Garrett was reinstated from his indefinite suspension after his role in the Week 11 brawl against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, the story has not gone away as Garrett continues to make claims about what ignited the brawl.
In an interview with ESPN on Saturday, Garrett did not back down from his claim that Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph made a racist remark towards Garrett. However, the league has stated there is no audio from the game, so they could not determine if anything was said.
Garrett has received criticism from his claims because he did not make it known until after his suspension was handed down. There are some who believe that if Garrett heard that type of remark from Rudolph, he would have made it immediately known after the game.

Ex-Browns GM John Dorsey says Myles Garrett told him right away Mason Rudolph used racial slur – Nate Ulrich, Akron Beacon Journal
"Garrett contends he told former Browns General Manager John Dorsey, coaches and defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi on the heels of the incident that Rudolph had uttered a racial slur.On Monday, Dorsey told the Beacon Journal in text messages it’s “correct” and “it’s the truth” that Garrett informed him of the racial slur accusation right away."
Dorsey’s comments are consistent with what Garrett and several others Browns personnel have said about the incident. Although it is nearly impossible to confirm what was or wasn’t said if there truly was no audio from the game, Garrett’s comments have generally been consistent.

Mike Tomlin says Steeler were ‘hacked off’ by ESPN’s Myles Garrett piece; Garrett’s suggestion the Steelers were part of an audio cover-up was ‘laughable’ – Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com
"Tomlin was also miffed at Garrett’s suggestion that the Steelers and the NFL conspired to cover up the audio that Garrett believes must have existed during the game. Offensive lineman were mic’d up, but none of the on-field audio was recorded, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told cleveland.com."
The entire situation has become very delicate considering the accusations that are being thrown around. Unless audio is uncovered, the situation is always going to become conflicting reports between two sides that no one can confirm with evidence. However, with the severity of the accusations being put out there, it has become a situation that the league needs to find a solution to.
