"I think we would have had these answers a couple days ago."
Jay Glazer believes he would've gotten a REAL explanation from Myles Garrett about the alleged racial slurs from Mason Rudolph that led to the helmet attack ... if the Browns hadn't shut down his interview with the embattled NFL star.
"I had an interview set up with him for Sunday for Fox NFL Sunday so he could talk about this earlier," Glazer said.
"The Browns didn't think he should do it and very, very strongly told him he should not do the interview."
"People were saying, well, they wish he spoke earlier, right? Well, he was willing to speak earlier. They shut it down."
Glazer didn't hold back at the L.A. premiere of DAZN's "One Night: Joshua vs. Ruiz" documentary.
"About an hour before myself and the guys from Fox -- I was going down with producers, going to the airport is when we got word, they had called him to the facility and told him, 'Pull the plug on this.' And, it's unfortunate."
The good news ... Glazer seems to have some more info on the situation and executed a perfect tease for NFL on FOX!
