The Cleveland Browns defensive end lingered on top of the quarterback, who then tried to jerk Garrett's helmet off the back of his head.

The backlash from fans in support of Myles Garrett and against Mason Rudolph is continuing to pour in. The 24-year-old also said there is "no acceptable excuse" for the way he reacted. The bottom line is I should have done a better job keeping my composure in that situation.

Late Friday morning, the National Football League announced that Garrett would be suspended for the rest of the year while Pouncey and Ogunjobi faced three-game and one-game suspensions, respectively.

Ogunjobi was suspended a game without pay for shoving Rudolph down from behind moments after he was struck, and Pouncey was suspended three games for punching and kicking Garrett repeatedly in retaliation.

Rudolph's conciliatory tone Wednesday was a departure from last week's defiant postgame news conference, where he called Garrett's actions "bush league" and "cowardly". Did not agree with way he took me to the ground and my natural reaction was to get him from off on top of me. Many feel that Rudolph provoked Garrett in the attack. Rudolph said he was trying to get Garrett off him when he grabbed the back of Garrett's helmet.

Rudolph added that he didn't say anything to provoke Garrett or escalate the situation.

"I don't know", Tomlin said.

"He will probably meet with us some time in the offseason", Goodell said, "and I think we'll make a judgment on does he have remorse?" "I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable", Garrett said.
