Myles Garrett doesn’t have any more football to play this year, but he’s trying to be a part of his community.

Via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the suspended Browns defensive end was serving a Thanksgiving lunch as part of a charity event, while dealing with his banishment for the rest of the season.

Asked if this was a hard time for him, Garrett replied: “It’s a time. You have ups and downs in your life and right now I’m giving back and [spending time] with my family and friends and I’m making the most out of that.’’

Garrett had promised to appear at the event before clocking Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph with his own helmet, and he didn’t get into any depth about the incident or his plans for the future.

  1. A friendly warning to anyone being served Thanksgiving lunch by Mr. Garrett: Don’t complain about the food, or anything else, lest he take the drumstick off your plate and beat you over the head with it.

  2. All of his comments are as if this was an unfortunate accident that happened to him. Just some bad luck that he tried to smash in somebody’s skull with a helmet. I hate it when that happens.

  4. Garrett is a RACIST!
    He falsely accused Rudolph of uttering a racial slur just be he (Garrett) wanted to save his appeal and thought that he could play the race card and automatically win.
    Garrett should receive additional discipline for trying to purposefully destroy Rudolph’s career based on false allegations.

    You realize he’s not the victim, right?

  6. Man – some of y’all want this dude to be banished from life. He apologized and moved on. I suggest you benthic dwellers do the same.

  7. I get the swinging the helmet. It happens in the heat of battle etc. Playing the race card a week later moves him to dirtbag status in my book. No one else heard it, he didn’t say anything about it on the sideline or locker room. Trying to get out of your punishment by smearing someone else with a horrible accusation is scummy.

  8. Ups and downs in life usually refer to things that happen to you, not to things you do to yourself.

  9. I wish I had paid staff members whose only job was to improve my image in the community.
    Positive image publicity stunts, positive press releases and writing positive prepared statements are all done by a professional paid staff.
    Does anyone really believe he does it because he has a good heart?

    as a guy who’s watched most every press conference Myles has ever given since being drafted, and watched most every press conference given by coaches and players talking about him, yes.

  11. Playing the race card shows your true character – liar big time! Hope he is punished by NFL for both his incredibly dumb actions.

  12. When your downs are caused by being an idiot, you have bigger things to do than to being a philosopher.
