Myles Garrett Reinstated By NFL

Whatever Myles Garrett said to Roger Goodell worked.

Two days after meeting with the Commissioner, the Cleveland Browns defensive end was reinstated by the league after he was put on an indefinite suspension back in November after he ripped Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet off, and hit him in the head with it.

“We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms,” said Browns new general manager Andrew Berry in a statement. “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 reinstatement is effective immediately, but according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Garrett has some off-field work to attend to.

“Myles Garrett’s reinstatement is effective immediately. But for now, he has other plans. Garrett is the captain of the NFL’s Waterboys program, which works to bring clean water to communities in need in East Africa. He is set to depart on a humanitarian trip next week to Tanzania,” reported Schefter.
