The American football world experienced a jolt when Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett hit the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback on the head with his helmet. The National Football League (NFL) fined the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns $250,000 each and suspended three players involved in the violent incident during the game. Myles Garrett now stands to lose more than a reported $1 million for his role in the brawl.
Myles Garrett appeared to rip off Steelers' quarterback Mason Rudolph's helmet and hit him on the head after the pair were involved in a physical altercation late in the fourth quarter. Garrett has now been suspended indefinitely without pay, according to a statement from the NFL. His suspension means that the Cleveland Browns will now have to play the rest of their season without arguably their best defensive player this season. Even though he stands to lose more than $1 million, interestingly, it still isn't the most expensive suspension in NFL history. That honour sits with Vontaze Burfict of the Cincinnati Bengals, who was fined a total of a reported sum of $1,400,469 for a hit on Kansas City’s Anthony Sherman. Here, we look at Myles Garrett's net worth, along with his salary package.
