Myles Garrett has his eyes on one team in the league, not to join them, but for his current team to follow in terms of success.
The Cleveland Browns defensive end hopes the franchise can follow the recipe of the NFC Champs: The Philadelphia Eagles.
Just this offseason, the Browns hired Jim Schwartz as the new defensive coordinator and signed Dalvin Tomlinson and Ogbo Okoronkwo to join Garrett on the defensive line in 2023.
“Hope we can make this consistent, make this a group that can be feared because we’re going to be here for a long time, we’re going to be consistently good for a long time and I feel like the Eagles have kind of the recipe,” Garrett told the Akron Beacon Journal.
“They have their guys who are mainstays and who’ve been there for a long time and they got some new additions here and there, but you have guys that you know, ‘Well, damn, we’re facing the Eagles defensive line, we got to buckle up, we got to get ready.’ I’m hoping that we can put that same fear into people.”
Myles Garrett has been a beast ever since his high school days. Garrett attended Martin High School in Arlington, Texas, where he played football and basketball. As a senior, he recorded 19.5 sacks, 32 tackles for loss, and seven forced fumbles, earning him a five-star recruit ranking and making him one of the most sought-after defensive players in the country.
At Texas A&M, Garrett had an outstanding career, earning numerous awards and accolades. In his three years at the university, he recorded 31 sacks, 141 tackles, and seven forced fumbles.
His stellar play had him being selected first overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 2017 NFL Draft, becoming the first Texas A&M player to be taken with the first overall pick.
He signed a five-year, $125 million contract extension with the Browns in July 2020, making him one of the highest-paid defensive players in NFL history.
While his career has not been without controversy, he remains a key player for the Cleveland Browns and is widely regarded as one of the best defensive ends in the league.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
