Michael Irvin wants to make sure no one gets the wrong idea regarding what Tom Brady said to Tyrann Mathieu on Sunday.

During the Super Bowl, Mathieu and Brady got into a heated back and forth that was caught on camera.

After the game, Mattheiu claimed Brady had called him something he wouldn’t repeat in a now-deleted Twitter post.

Considering many assumed Matthieu may have alluded to Brady using the n-word during the incident, NFL network’s Michael Irvin told Rich Eisen that he heard the audio and it proves the Bucs QB didn’t use a racial slur.

I’m gonna say this, I didn’t like that Tyrann Mathieu put that out like that, the way he put it out honestly because it makes as if…he said the N-word, Tom did not. I did not like that it’s even loomimg over this situation, so that’s why I think we should clean that up somehow.
