Three months after being suspended indefinitely, Myles Garrett has been reinstated into the NFL. On Wednesday, league commissioner Roger Goodell made the decision to reinstate Garrett, following his meeting with the Cleveland Browns defensive end in New York earlier this week.
Garrett’s reinstatement seemingly brings an end to a three-month saga, which began with a brawl in the closing seconds of the Browns’ Week 11 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football.
The Browns issued a statement.
“We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms,” Browns General Manager Andrew Berry said. “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.”
