Myles Garrett has been suspended by the NFL for the remainder of the regular season and playoffs should the Cleveland Browns make it that far, but he has no intention of just sitting around and not trying this fight this ruling.
The Cleveland Browns defensive star will appeal the ruling and hopes to get it reduced in part because of a technicality.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, one of the arguments Garrett plans to make is that the collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and NFL Players Association does not allow for indefinite suspensions.
This probably won’t help his case as the league could easily come back and put an actual number on the ban. So what is essentially a 6-game ban plus the playoffs, may turn into 8 or 10 games.
In case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, Garrett ripped off Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet at the end of Thursday Night Football and hit him over the head with it. He was ejected and will not suit up for the remaining six games left in the regular season, and despite the 2-game winning streak, the Browns aren’t expected to qualify for the postseason, so his suspension might go into the following season.
