Myles Garrett is back. The Cleveland Browns got good news when they were told that the NFL was reinstating Garrett and will return for the 2020 NFL season.

Browns general manager Andrew Berry said, “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.”

The suspension stemmed from an incident that occurred during the November 15th game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Garrett got into a scrum with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph which resulted in him being suspended for the rest of the season. When Garrett was appealing the suspension, he accused Rudolph of inciting him with a racial slur. The appeal was denied as there were no evidence of Rudolph saying anything like that.

The NFL met with Garrett on Monday for a final meeting before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made a decision. Garrett’s suspension was the second longest in NFL history.

Garrett recorded 29 tackles, ten sacks, and two forced fumbles in ten games.

The Browns will need him after the team went 6-10 and fell short of expectations. Garrett will have a new head coach in Kevin Stefanski after Freddie Kitchens was let go after the season.
