CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett cited the NFL's punishment for former Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith during his appeal, according to a report by ESPN.

In 2013, Smith ripped off Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito's helmet and swung it at his head. Smith was suspended for two preseason games and one regular season game.

The NFL suspended Garrett indefinitely last week for doing something similar to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.

ESPN reported that Garrett and the NFL Player's Association argued that Smith was only suspended for three games for the 2013 incident, and the Garrett's suspension for the remainder of the season, at least six games, was excessive under that precedent.

ESPN also reported that Garrett argued that an indefinite suspension is not permitted under the league's collective bargaining agreement.

The NFL heard Garrett's appeal on Wednesday and a decision should be released in a couple of days.
