Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin went on “First Take” on Monday to defend quarterback Mason Rudolph against accusations made by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett that he used a racial slur.

Tomlin said none of the evidence supports Garrett’s claims.  In addition nobody within the Browns organization ever mentioned it to him.
