Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett had a hearing on Thursday to appeal his indefinite suspension, and during that process, it came to light that he accused Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph of using a racial slur during the fracas.
The NFL investigated the matter and claims to not have found any evidence, leading to Garrett's current suspension being upheld. For some, that wasn't good enough, and they think the NFL should've taken more time to investigate it.
One of those people is Browns wide receiver and Garrett's teammate Jarvis Landry.
Landry also doesn't believe the ruling was fair or thorough enough, and that the penalty for Garrett's actions is "too severe."
After clubbing Rudolph over the head with a helmet, Garrett will be suspended for the remainder of the 2019 season, and he could miss additional time next year.
You understand Landry's point, though. This accusation should be taken seriously and thoroughly vetted, but even teammates of Garrett can't corroborate the allegation of Rudolph using a racial slur. Kind of a big thing you need when hearsay is involved.
If the NFL has audio, speak now or forever hold your piece of evidence.
