Myles Garrett puts insane athleticism on display
When Cleveland Browns talent Myles Garrett entered the NFL out of Texas A&M in 2017, he was widely viewed as a phenomenal defensive lineman prospect because of his ridiculous athleticism.
Well, Garrett put his freakish athleticism on display while working with his trainer this week:

That’s one heck of a box jump.
Garrett, a former No. 1 overall pick of the Cleveland Browns, is coming off of a wild 2019 campaign in which he was limited to 10 games due to a suspension. The pass rusher was banned due to his role in a brawl between the Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11, when he ripped the helmet off of Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and then hit him over the head with it. Garrett was indefinitely suspended and was reinstated earlier this offseason.
During the time that Garrett was on the field this past year, he registered 29 tackles, 10 sacks and a couple of forced fumbles.
The 24-year-old appeared in 11 contests during his rookie season, finishing with 31 tackles, seven sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He then broke out in 2018, playing in every game and racking up 44 tackles, 13.5 sacks and three forced fumbles en route to a Pro Bowl appearance.
Cleveland was one of the NFL’s most disappointing teams in 2019. In spite of entering the year with Super Bowl aspirations, the Browns won just six games and missed the playoffs altogether, resulting in the firings of general manager John Dorsey and first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens.
The club replaced Dorsey and Kitchens with Andrew Berry and Kevin Stefanski, respectively.
