NFL announces Myles Garrett has been reinstated
The NFL has made its decision, Myles Garrett has been reinstated after serving a six-game suspension.
Garrett was famously involved in an on-the-field brawl last season against the Steelers in which the Browns lineman used his helmet as a weapon in an attempt to hit Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph. This event took place back in November.
Pittsburgh’s Maurkice Pouncey was suspended by the NFL for three games and Cleveland’s Larry Ogunjobi one game, both without pay, for their involvements in the brawl.
News of Garrett’s reinstatement comes two days after the Cleveland lineman met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in New York.
Following the news, Browns EVP of Football Operations and General Manager Andrew Berry has issued the following statement:
“We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms. We know he is grateful to be reinstated, eager to put the past behind him and continue to evolve and grow as a leader. We look forward to having his strong positive presence back as a teammate, player and person in our community.”
Garrett was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft following a three-year college career at Texas A&M where he registered 31 sacks and 47 tackles for loss for the Aggies.
