As an observer, you never know what is going on behind the scenes, in the trenches. At the end of that Week 11 game with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Brown’s Myles Garrett, who seemed frustrated did something that all athletes (particularly professional) are beckoned with…the emotional capacity to lose your cool. Perhaps he was being held all game, or there was trash-talking at the line of scrimmage. Either way, he seems rejuvenated with a new attitude, and ready to go – maybe that’s what a 6-game suspension does to a player. As the great coach John Wooden used to say, “put a player on the bench and he will eventually come around.” Here’s a report from Yardbarkers, Dan Benton, with some replies from Myles Garrett:
Cleveland Browns edge rusher Myles Garrett was officially reinstated on Wednesday after serving what amounted to a six-game suspension for striking Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph over the head with his own helmet during a Week 11 contest.
With the entire incident now behind him, Garrett expressed a sigh of relief, telling TMZ Sports it “feels pretty nice” to be back. He also acknowledged that the entire situation, suspension and all, was a blessing in disguise.
“Everything that happens to you is for a reason,” Garrett said. “If you take the lesson and make the best out of it, everything a blessing in disguise.”
Although Garrett was feeling optimistic following his reinstatement, he refused to answer a question about whether or not he’s spoken to Rudolph since the incident. However, he did promise big things in 2020.
“When I get back onto the field, you’ll see,” Garrett cautioned.
