James Harrison calls out Myles Garrett for helmet swing; former Browns player responds

first_imgJames Harrison is handing down his own personal punishments after Thursday night’s brawl between the Browns and Steelers.The ex-Steelers linebacker believes that Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, who has been suspended indefinitely for ripping off Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet and whipping it at Rudolph’s head, should be facing jail time in addition to league discipline. Harrison tweeted that Garrett’s behavior qualifies as “assault at the least.” Lmao yeah ok bud— Phil Taylor (@PhilTaylor98) November 15, 2019Harrison may think this incident goes beyond the football field, but Rudolph won’t take legal action against Garrett, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Rudolph considers the situation “exclusively an NFL matter.”In addition to Garrett’s suspension, Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey will be out three games for punching and kicking Garrett, and Browns defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi will miss one game for pushing Rudolph to the ground following Garrett’s helmet swing. Harrison did get that part right.I think Garrett will get suspended for the rest of the year, Ogunjobi will get a game and they will have to give Pouncey a cpl games, even tho it was in defense of his QB.— James Harrison (@jharrison9292) November 15, 2019Rudolph was not suspended for his role in the melee, which left some NFL fans upset, but he is expected to receive a fine, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. That’s assault at the least… 6 months in jail on the street.. now add the weapon and that’s at least a year right?!— James Harrison (@jharrison9292) November 15, 2019MORE: “AFC North football” needs culture shift after Garrett suspensionHarrison opened the door for plenty of harsh replies considering his history of illegal hits. The five-time Pro Bowler delivered brutal helmet-to-helmet shots to Cleveland’s Josh Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi during the same game in 2010 and knocked Browns quarterback Colt McCoy out of a 2011 divisional matchup. (It has been a violent decade for the AFC North.)Former Browns defensive lineman Phil Taylor offered perhaps the nicest version of the popular response to Harrison.last_img
