The NFL is reinstating suspended Cleveland Browns pass rusher Myles Garrett. Garrett was suspended for the final six games of the regular season. Garrett met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Monday to discuss the future course of action.
During a Nov. 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Garrett removed the helmet of quarterback Mason Rudolph and swung it at his head just making contact. The incident occurred in the waning moments of the game and initiated an all-out brawl between the two teams. The league disciplined 33 players and gave out over $700,000 in fines.
Browns executive vice president of football operations and general manager Andrew Berry said, via the team’s press release: “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.”
