Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett wants to bring Von Miller to Cleveland
In the world of athletes trying to recruit other athletes to their organization, Myles Garrett wants to bring Von Miller to the Cleveland Browns.
Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has an idea for upgrading the defense over the off-season, and that would be to bring in Denver Broncos EDGE Von Miller.
There have been trade rumors around Miller ever since Broncos general manager and President of Football Operations, John Elway, said during his end of season press conference that he will consider all options this off-season, including the possibility of dealing Miller.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, Garrett shared a picture of he and Miller, with the caption saying “might have to get the wrecking crew back together.”

Both Garrett and Miller attended Texas A&M, although neither had the opportunity to play together. But there easily could have been a connection between the two during A&M’s recruitment of Garrett, and since both are alumni of the university.
Garrett has emerged as one of the next best edge players in the NFL. In just his second season, Garrett was named a second-team All-Pro and a Pro Bowler. He finished sixth in the league in sacks for 2018, compiling 13.5 sacks over the season.
Miller has been one of the most dominant edge players in the league since he was selected second overall by the Broncos in the 2011 NFL Draft. He got to the quarterback one more time than Garrett did in 2018, as he finished the season with 14.5 sacks. Over his eight-year career, Miller has sacked the quarterback 98 times, or an average of 12.25 sacks per season.
Although Elway did not specifically say that he will trade Miller, he said that the Broncos will consider every option over the off-season. Of any player on the Broncos roster, Miller will easily get the biggest return. At 29-years-old, Miller is still one of the most dominant players in the league.
If the Broncos were to trade Miller, it would likely cost the same as what the Oakland Raiders received for Khalil Mack. The Bears traded two first-round picks, a third-round pick, and a sixth-round pick to Oakland for Mack, a second-round pick, and a conditional fifth-round pick. Although Mack is younger, he was on an expiring contract while Miller has three years left on his deal, with club options in 2020 and 2021.
Who knows if the Browns would even consider moving the assets it would take to land Miller. However, picturing a defensive front with Garrett and Miller would be a dream for Browns fans and a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks.
