During the Week 2 game against the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns edge rusher Myles Garrett drew two roughing the passer penalties. One of those late hits put an end to Jets quarterback Trevor Siemian’s season. With penalties like those, the perception of dirty play is not far behind.

Garrett was, of course, asked about his play by reporters on Wednesday.

“It is hurting right now because you want to play aggressive, you want to play passionate, and you just want to finish the play. I am going to keep on playing with the same aggression. I just have to be smarter, better with my strike zone and try to pull off so I do not land with all my weight. That was the main point of emphasis when the refs talked to me, so I just have to be better at that. I am not going to pull off on a one-step and hit on the quarterback like that. If I know I have to be two steps or more, I am going to pull off. I am not trying to do anything dirty. I am not trying to injure anybody.” Garrett said, via Pro Football Talk.

Garrett has never been viewed as a dirty player before this season. The accusations will thin out within a couple of weeks, but until then, Garrett will have plenty of eyes on him.

The former first overall pick is off to a terrific start to the season, and will look to continue it against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3.
