Garrett had alleged to the NFL that Rudolph referred to as him a racial slur previous to the incident. Rudolph, who was fined $50,000 for his position within the combat, denied the allegation and the NFL “discovered no such proof” of it happening.
Garrett, 24, was reinstated by the league in February.
Garrett has 30.5 sacks and 104 mixed tackles in 37 profession video games.
He returns to a staff that completed 6-10 final season and cleaned home, firing its coach and GM.
