According to the NFL Network on Wednesday, Cleveland Browns Defensive End Myles Garrett will appeal his indefinite suspension stemming from his role in Thursday’s brawl against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Garrett ripped of Mason Rudolph’s helmet and then used it as a weapon as he clubbed him over the head with it, totally unprotected.
On Friday, News 25 spoke with Southern Miss legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Brett Favre about his thoughts on that unprecedented act of violence on an NFL field. “I’ve never seen anything like it. It obviously sets a bad example. I really don’t know Myles Garrett. I know his family. I met his mother and father, very nice people. My agent Bus (Cook) represents him and I’m sure he’s a great kid. And his emotions got the best of him obviously, and you don’t wish that upon anyone. Whether it’s your teammate or an opposing teammate or just a fan, there’s no place for it.”
Favre goes on to say that Rudolph was lucky he didn’t get severe damage from a hit that’s much different than a quarterback is accustomed to.
