Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Barry told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that he wants to have defensive end Myles Garrett being with the team for the long-term.
Rapoport would soon note that Garrett has a “legitimate chance of being the first $25 million-a-year pass-rusher” while discussing the possibility of a contract extension with Cleveland.
Garrett had a crazy 2019 season that saw him play just 10 games due to a suspension for his involvement in a brawl where he ripped the helmet off of Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and hit him over the head with it.
While on the field, he racked up 29 tackles and 10 sacks. He has accumulated 30.5 sacks in his first three seasons while adding 104 tackles, 65 quarterback hits and six forced fumbles.
The 24-year-old was reinstated by the NFL earlier this offseason.
