Cleveland Browns, Myles Garrett Agree To Rookie Contract

The Cleveland Browns and No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett have agreed to terms on his rookie deal.

On Friday, the Browns announced a four-year deal with the top pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. With the signing of Garrett, the Browns have now agreed to terms with six of their ten draft picks.

Garrett joins DL Larry Ogunjobi (third round), DB Howard Wilson (fourth round), OL Rod Johnson (fifth round), K Zane Gonzalez (seventh round) and RB Matthew Dayes (seventh round) under contract with the team.

During his time as a standout at Texas A&M, the two-time All-American recorded  31 sacks, 141 tackles and seven forced fumbles.

Cleveland is hoping the 6-foot-4, 272-pounder can immediately improve the team’s pass rush and provide a dynamic force on the defensive side of the ball under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
