Not many things have gone the Cleveland Browns way over the past few years. This year, however, they caught a break. Their No.1 overall pick in this past years NFL Draft, DE Myles Garrett out of Texas A&M, sustained a recent injury to his foot which many thought would sideline him for an extended period of time.
Fortunately, the prognosis was not nearly as serious as many thought. It turns out that Garrett only has a sprained foot and is expected to be back before the training camp starts next month.
Until this point, the Browns are very excited about the talent in Garrett and his potential.
“He has done a great job,” said new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. “It is still way early, but you guys are going to see a pretty good football player when he gets the chance to get out there and go. I have a big smile on my face, and I will just wait and let him show everybody before I talk about it.”
Garrett and the Browns agreed four-year $30.4 million contract last month which included a $20 million signing bonus and club option in the fifth year of the contract.
While Cleveland has not had and successful seasons in recent memory, they have a stockpile of young talents and assets which provides them with a tremendous upside. It will take time, but things are making a turn for the better in Cleveland.
Be patient Browns fans, it’s coming.
