Dorsey told the Akon Beacon Journal “correct” and “it’s the truth” that Garrett told him of the racial slur accusation right away.

Garrett tripled-down on an interview with ESPN last week, saying that the Steelers quarterback called him a racial slur.
Rudolph’s attorneys are currently threatening legal action for defamation after initially saying he would not.
On Monday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin went on ESPN to defend his quarterback.
“I took offense to it to be quite honest with you,” Tomlin said.
