Mason Rudolph and Myles Garrett chat after final season’s helmet combat

The moment didn’t last long, but Mason Rudolph and Myles Garrett spoke briefly before stepping off the field at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland on Sunday afternoon.

The two who were involved in a wild brawl in which Garrett swung a helmet to Rudolph’s head last season appear to have both left him behind.

“I just told him, ‘Good game,'” said Garrett after the Browns beat the Steelers 24:22 over’s Mary Kay Cabot. “‘A damn good game and I’ll see you next week.'”

Mason Rudolph and Myles Garrett’s wild argument

Garrett was indefinitely banned from the league after grabbing Rudolph’s helmet, taking it off completely, and swinging it to Rudolph’s head in the final seconds of their 2019 matchup.

Garrett’s momentum missed – which likely saved Rudolph significant injuries – but the action sparked a massive brawl.

Garrett was suspended for six games, the longest for a single act on the field in league history, before being reinstated last February. He later accused Rudolph several times of calling him a racial fraud, which Rudolph has denied. The NFL also said there is “no such evidence” that Rudolph Garrett called a bow on the field.

Rudolph went through the air 225 of 39 for 315 yards with two touchdowns in the Sunday loss, bringing them nearly out of a 24-9 hole in the fourth quarter. Thanks to the win and a successful stop on a two-point switch, the Browns have received a playoff offer for the first time since the 2002 season. They’ll get a rematch with Pittsburgh on January 10, where Rudolph will likely be replaced by starter Ben Roethlisberger.

The story goes on

Although their conversation was extremely brief, Rudolph and Garrett appear to have moved on from last season’s incident. Rudolph even posted a photo of her handshake on social media.

“That was all,” said Rudolph of ESPN’s Brooke Pryor. “I said ‘good luck’ to him and have a lot of respect for him.”
