Garrett’s suspension will cover at least the Browns’ six remaining games in the 2019 regular season and any postseason games they might play, the NFL said. He must meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell or other league representatives before a decision is made about his reinstatement.
“Last night, I made a terrible mistake,” Garrett said in a statement released yesterday by the Browns. “I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable. I know that we are all responsible for our actions and I can only prove my true character through my actions moving forward. I want to apologize to Mason Rudolph, my teammates, our entire organization, our fans and to the NFL. I know I have to be accountable for what happened, learn from my mistake and I fully intend to do so.”
