Social media had quite a buzz on Monday afternoon after a Reddit post sparked rumors that Browns pass rusher Myles Garrett was heading to the Seattle Seahawks.
That reddit user went on KJR 950 Seattle to announce that the team was finalizing a deal to acquire Garrett.
None of this was true.
Seattle insider Jake Heaps called for the fan base to get a grip and be realistic about the situation.
“Seahawks Twitter get a grip… Sorry to burst your bubble but the Myles Garrett Trade rumors couldn’t be more wrong (I would love for it to be true). No team in their right mind is going to trade one of the NFL’s truly ELITE pass rushers for a LB, a 2nd and 7th RD pick,” Heaps explained on Twitter.
Basically, the Browns are not trading Myles Garrett.
In 2019, Garrett played just 10 games and produced 10.0 sacks, 29 combined tackles, 11.0 tackles for loss, and 18 quarterback hits. His season was shortened due to him being suspended following a brawl against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
