Report: Myles Garrett expected to be reinstated by NFL in coming months
Myles Garrett’s indefinite suspension may be ending before April.
Cleveland.com reporter Mary Kay Cabot spoke to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about the former Texas A&M standout. Goodell told her that he plans to meet with the Cleveland Browns defensive lineman within the next 60 days to discuss reinstatement from Garrett’s indefinite suspension. Cabo reports that a league source is expecting Garrett will be reinstated.
If Garrett is reinstated at the meeting, he would be cleared to take part in the Browns’ offseason program, which begins April 6. The early April workouts are voluntary, but participating would help Garrett make a good first impression on new Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Garrett has been indefinitely suspended since the Nov. 15 brawl between Cleveland and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Garrett ripped off the helmet of Steelers QB Mason Rudolph and struck him over the head. The suspension has cost Garrett a $45,623 fine and $1.14 million in lost game checks.
Cabot notes that Garrett has kept mostly a low profile since his initial suspension and unsuccessful appeal claiming Rudolph used a racial slur. Per Cabot, Garrett’s behavior before and after Nov. 15 of no other incidents or problems “will go a long way” in getting him reinstated to continue his NFL career. She also notes that he has done some charity work in his time off.
