Browns Tell Myles Garrett No More Pick Up Basketball

Myles Garrett’s basketball career is over before it even started. Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski declared Wednesday that Myles Garrett’s basketball career is officially over. “He retired,” the Cleveland Browns coach said when asked if he was OK with his star pass-rusher playing so much pickup basketball this offseason. “So congratulations on a great career for Myles. Really proud of him. But he’s done.”

Myles posted several videos on social media of himself playing basketball. It began in February with Garrett asking Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban if he needed a “big guard.”


Most recently, Garrett tweeted a video of him going behind the back on the dribble, then dunking one-handed over two hapless defenders. Above the video, he wrote, “Aight I’m going back to football” with a laughing emoji.

Garrett signed the richest contract extension for a non-quarterback at the time last summer, worth $100 million in guaranteed money.

When you have that much invested into a player,  you can’t allow him to do anything risky.
