With the second session of OTAs finishing up today for the Cleveland Browns, the team was glad to see Myles Garrett on campus for this week after being away last week. The Browns brought back his running mate Jadeveon Clowney last week while retaining Denzel Ward for the long-term this offseason as well.
For Cleveland’s defense, Garrett is:
- The best player
- The highest paid player
- Been on the team the longest
- The player that makes everyone else’s job easier
A lot of responsibility for the former top overall pick out of Texas A&M but one that Garrett has seemed to take in stride. Over the past few years, the hulking defensive end has become more vocal as a leader as well.
His latest leadership action is a plan to take a majority of the defense on a bonding trip to South Beach in Miami this weekend. Garrett even used a saying that doesn’t have positive connotations in Ohio:
#Browns D-end Myles Garrett said he’s taking the defense to Miami tomorrow, adding all the D-line, all the LBs and some of the DBs will go for team bonding and workouts. “Taking my talents to South Beach,” he quipped.

Deshaun Watson led the offense on a trip to the Bahamas prior to the start of OTAs and now Garrett is gathering his side of the ball in Miami for a similar trip.
