Previously suspended, Cleveland defensive end Myles Garret will return to the NFL.
Myles was suspended for taking off Pittsburgh QB Mason Rudolph’s helmet and swinging it at him.
“We welcome Garret back to the organization with open arms,” general manager Andrew Berry said via a statement released by the team. “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 is one of the key players in the Cleveland Brown’s turnaround. It’s great news for a team in a dire position this year. They have talent at every position. However, that talent didn’t transfer into wins last year. Garret is the defensive leader who needs to defend next season.
Before his suspension, Garrett was in the top five in sacks, recording ten through ten games. In the 2018 season, Garrett started all 16 games and recorded 13.5 sacks, 44 combined tackles, 12 tackles-for-loss, 29 quarterback hits, three passes defensed, and three forced fumbles. His 13.5 sacks ranked sixth in the NFL that year.
Garrett now gets to move forward from this ugly incident. He doesn’t have a bad name around the league, so he can repair his reputation.
