CLEVELAND — Thousands of people have signed a petition to reinstate Myles Garrett following the league’s decision on Friday to indefinitely suspend him.

Garrett received the suspension after a brawl in the last eight seconds of the Browns game against the Steelers on Thursday. Garrett got into a heated fight with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.

The petition on Change.org named “Reinstate Myles Garrett” has received over 49,000 signatures of its 50,000 goal.

"No more are the great fans of Cleveland going to sit dormant as the NFL slams the hammer down on us! We will stand and for fight Myles, the Browns, and for Cleveland!! Let’s show Mr. Roger Goodell we mean business! Share and let’s hit 100,000!!!," the petition states.

While Rudolph did not receive a suspension, Garrett was suspended indefinitely, Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi was suspended for one game and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey was suspended for three games. Rudolph is expected to receive a fine for his involvement.

Other prominent Clevelanders have taken to Twitter to voice their support for Garrett, including Northeast Ohio native and UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Mioic, who feels the punishments handed down were not fair.
