Myles Lorenz Garrett (born December 29, 1995) is an American football defensive end for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Texas A&M and was drafted by the Browns first overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Garrett was the highest-rated defensive player ever recruited by Texas A&M, where he became a two-time All-American while playing for the Aggies, racking up numerous other awards for his stellar defensive play. Upon joining the Browns, his rookie season was limited due to injuries, but Garrett emerged after the latter half of that year and has become one of the premier edge rushers in the NFL. In 2019, Garrett was suspended indefinitely for a fight occurring in a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers before being reinstated in early 2020. – READ MORE »
