NFL Reinstates Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrret

Published

on

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett’s banishment from the NFL is officially over.

Following a face-to-face meeting with Commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday, the NFL announced Wednesday morning that Garrett has been reinstated effective immediately. The season-long season resulted from the controversially helmet ripping and tossing incident with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.

Garrett is now permitted to rejoin the team at their facility for offseason workouts and future practices.

“We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms,” said Browns Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Andrew Berry. “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.”

The former No. 1 overall pick of the Browns has never faced any NFL discipline prior to the suspension. He was on his way to a Pro Bowl worthy season with 10 sacks. In his first three NFL seasons, Garrett has collected 30.5 sacks which are the most-ever by a Browns player in the first three years of their career.
