Cabot says there’s no timetable regarding a decision yet. However, Garrett is expected to be reinstated in time to participate with the team in offseason activities.
Ian Rapoport reports as long as Garrett completed all of his conditions, including counseling, he should be reinstated.
Garrett was suspended for the final six games of the 2019 season after ripping off Steelers QB Mason Rudolph‘s helmet and clubbing him in the head with it.
Garrett, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2017. He just finished the third year of his four-year, $30.4 million fully guaranteed contract.
Garrett stands to make a base salary of $4.61 million over the final year of the agreement. The Browns have a fifth-year option to pick up for the 2021 season.
In 2019, Garrett appeared in 10 games and recorded 29 tackles, 10 sacks, and two forced fumbles.
