Won’t be seeing anymore footage of Myles Garrett playing basketball anytime soon.
Last week, a video surfaced of the Cleveland Browns defensive end playing a pickup basketball game where he ended a fast break by dunking all over a guy who fell to the ground.
On Wednesday, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski announced that Garrett’s basketball days were officially over.
“I feel it’s more like a [Michael] Jordan retirement,” he told reporters. “Now I got to go back what I’m good at. Next season, you never know. I might go back to basketball…baseball.”
Less than a year ago, the Browns signed Garrett to a contract extension worth $125 million over five years that will begin in 2022.
Garrett is scheduled to earn $15.1 million in 2021 before the new deal kicks in for 2022, which carries an average salary of $25 million.
