NFL Reinstates Myles Garrett


According to Mary Kay Cabot, Browns DE Myles Garrett has been reinstated by the NFL today.

Garrett met with the commissioner on Monday to discuss his progress since the suspension. He’ll now be available for the new Browns coaching staff during offseason activities heading into 2020. 

Cleveland released the following statement from GM Andrew Berry

“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.”

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.
