ESPN Offers Odd Defense For Myles Garrett’s Attack
ESPN offered an odd defense for Myles Garrett’s attack on Thursday night.
What started out as a fairly boring game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers took an ugly turn in the closing moments.
With the outcome already decided, a brawl broke out between Browns defense end Myles Garrett and Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.
While Garrett was almost universally lambasted for his violent display, one ESPN reporter offered an odd defense of his actions.
“I would bet Myles Garrett will say he heard Mason Rudolph call him something egregious,” Josina Anderson tweeted out.
“Never seen Garrett act like that, ever.”
She immediately deleted the tweet after seeing the response to it, but that did not stop people from reading between the lines.

As of Friday, Anderson has yet to comment on the controversial tweet or the backlash she received for it.
