Roger Goodell weighs in on how league will judge Myles Garrett

Roger Goodell

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made his first public comments on Myles Garrett’s actions and suspension recently, and gave a glimpse of what it will take for the defensive lineman to be reinstated.

Goodell appeared on “Pre-Flight Playbook with Gary Myers” after Garrett’s indefinite suspension was announced, and said the league would be looking at how remorseful Garrett is when it comes time to consider his reinstatement.

“There’s no place for that in the game,” Goodell said, via Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com. “He will not play the rest of the season. He will probably meet with us some time in the offseason, and I think we’ll make a judgment on does he have remorse?

“Does he understand why it’s not acceptable? Do we understand what he’s going to do to make sure it doesn’t happen again? Those are the things that are going to be very important for us.”

Garrett assaulted Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph with a helmet last Thursday. In addition to being violent and way over the line, it was a bad look for the NFL, which will always concern Goodell. The commissioner made these remarks before Garrett revealed he would appeal, and his defense is more procedural than anything else. It’s not something that sounds like it would move Goodell, but it’s also not his call.
