Mason Rudolph’s representatives have hinted that Myles Garrett might be sued over claims the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback used a racial slur.

Garrett has continued to claim that the Rudolph called him the n-word during their altercation, which resulted in the Browns star smacking the young NFL quarterback in the head with a helmet.

Rudolph and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin both hit back at Garrett’s claim of a racial slur being used against him, which is supported by zero evidence of any kind. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Rudolph’s reps at Younger & Associates released a statement Saturday that Garrett had opened himself up to “legal liability” in California after repeating the claim in his interview with ESPN.

This has turned into such a disaster for the NFL. Again, and I can’t stress this enough, there’s absolutely no evidence supporting Garrett’s claim.

None of his teammates heard it, none of the mics on the field picked it up and nobody knew about it until Garrett made the claim long after the fact to the league.

Rudolph should 100% sue Garrett if he’s truly innocent, which most certainly seems to be the case. Nobody deserves to be unfairly accused of being a racist.

Of course, a lawsuit is the last thing the NFL would want. At some point, you’d think somebody would sit Garrett down and tell him to shut the hell up before this situation really spirals out of control.

We’ll see what Rudolph decides to do, but I don’t think anybody would blame him at all for being furious.
