CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – You won’t see Myles Garrett holding up a No. 1 Browns jersey with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on April 27th.
And it has nothing to do with whether or not the Browns even select him. Garrett won’t even be in Philadelphia.
“It’s great I don’t have to be in a big ole suit walking up on stage,” Garrett told the Houston Chronicle Friday. “Although that’s a fantastic moment, I just want to be with my family and enjoy that night with them.”
The Texas A&M defensive end has elected to skip the draft altogether and remain in Texas with family and friends.
“I know at the draft you can only have a select amount of people there so I knew I wanted to have everybody who’s ever affected my life positively and helped to build me up to where I am now, I wanted them to see what I’ve achieved and to be a part of this big moment in my life,” Garrett said. “I’m happy to include anybody who’s been a part of that process.”
Garrett is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft after registering 8 1/2 sacks in 2016 despite playing with an ankle injury. In 3 seasons for the Aggies Garrett totaled 32 1/2 sacks and 48 1/2 tackles for loss.
Hall Back – The Browns re-signed receiver Rannell Hall on Friday.
Hall missed the entire 2016 season after breaking his fibula in the preseason opener. He appeared in 1 game with the Browns in 2015 after being signed off Tampa Bay’s practice squad.
Hall totaled 145 receptions for 2,051 yards and 9 touchdowns in 49 games at the University of Central Florida.
