Things got ugly Thursday night when Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett took off Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Mason Rudolph's helmet and swung at him, using the helmet as a weapon. Garrett was later suspended indefinitely, at a minimum of the remainder of the 2019 season, for his actions.
Several athletes took to Twitter to give their opinion on the incident, including Wizards guard Bradley Beal.
Beal, like pretty much everyone, agrees that Garrett's actions went way too far. But, the shooting guard also thinks that Rudolph should have been given some repercussions for his role in the incident.
Come on QB! You can’t start it then act all innocent! BUT, Garrett still went way too far! https://t.co/lzjtFANTb8— Bradley Beal (@RealDealBeal23) November 15, 2019
From the video that Beal responded to, the footage shows Rudolph instigated the brawl by attempting to pull Garrett's helmet off first. While Garrett has been suspended indefinitely, the NFL did not suspend Rudolph.
Regardless, the incident was not a good look for the NFL, and the suspension to Garrett was the league putting their foot down to make sure an incident of such magnitude never occurs again.
