Browns’ Myles Garrett Expecting Big Year

Published

on

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is setting the bar high for himself as the team heads towards the 2018 season with big expectations.

“Ten times better (than 2017), 15 times better,” Garrett said, according to ESPN’s Pat McManamon.

One of those goals is for a healthy season after missing 5 games during his rookie campaign.

“The best quality is availability,” Garrett said during the Browns’ minicamp. “I have to be present.”

Browns general manager John Dorsey has given Garrett tape on Carolina Panthers defensive lineman Julius Peppers, showing how Peppers became so dominant, as both players have similar builds and play styles.

“I think that is the challenge maybe John was serving up, and it is no different a challenge than if I would go to Myles,” Browns head coach Hue Jackson said. “‘You are supposed to be one of the best players in this league. Go be it every week.'”

“He is one of the few guys that I have had to coach that I know I am going to have to keep my hand on to hold back,” Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said. “One of the things with him is his overworking. He works so hard because he does not want to be good; he wants to be great.

“Sometimes he can be his own worst enemy in that respect because he works so hard physically that he has to do a good job with recovery also. The next thing is this — and he knows — if he stays healthy, watch out.”

Garrett feels that he has made strides this offseason and has improved in key areas.

“I feel like I was just a little slow with my hands and not as good as I wanted to be last year with disengaging with the offensive linemen,” Garrett said. “I think that I have really improved.”
