Browns QB Baker Mayfield says Myles Garrett ‘is in a good place right now’

Baker Mayfield, Myles Garrett, Mason Rudolph, Browns

The last time we saw Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Myles Garrett on a football field, he was hitting Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph over the head with a helmet.

That occurred back in Week 11 and resulted in Garrett getting tagged with an indefinite suspension.

While Garrett has to meet with the NFL  to determine when he can play again, the league doesn’t seem to have any intention of carrying his ban over into 2020, so by all indications, the pass rusher will be back on the gridiron next season.

TMZ Sports recently caught up with Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, who spent some time with Mayfield at UFC 246 and said that his teammate is doing well:

“I sat next to him during the fight. He’s good, man,” Mayfield said. “He’s in a good place right now, which is good for us as a team.”

Cleveland desperately needs Garrett back as soon as possible.

The Browns’ defense struggled even with Garrett on the field, and in 2019 as a whole, Cleveland finished 22nd in the NFL in yards allowed and 20th in scoring defense.

In the 10 games Garrett played this season, he totaled 29 tackles, 10 sacks and a couple of forced fumbles.

The 24-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Texas A&M, was originally selected by the Browns with the first overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

He was limited to 11 contests during his rookie campaign due to injuries, finishing with 31 tackles and seven sacks. Garrett then broke out in 2018, racking up 44 tackles and 13.5 sacks en route to a Pro Bowl appearance.

Cleveland went just 6-10 this year.
