Football in the Olympics? Cleveland Browns who would make the cut
1. Myles Garrett, EDGE
The third member of the Cleveland Browns to make our U.S. Olympic team is another selfless player, defensive end Myles Garrett. Much like Chubb, Garrett is a guy who can be completely dominant and has been one of the best in the NFL at his position.
In addition to his overall play, Garrett is also a player the entire team seems to love. He’s laid back and has an engaging personality — which would help keep things cool in the locker room. And that’s pretty important in these games since teammates often spend a lot of time together over the course of the Olympics.
This isn’t the first time Garrett has been mentioned as a possible Olympian either. Our own Greg Newland recently picked four players on the Cleveland Browns who could have likely become Olympic athletes if they decided to use their athletic abilities toward that endeavor.
Garrett was selected by Newman as the No. 1 player on the team who could be an Olympian, and while he struggled to pick which sport would be best (since he could do multiple) Newland said beach volleyball was the spot for No. 95 since he could rise up above the net and deliver some crushing finishers.
This time, however, Garrett wouldn’t have to learn a new sport. Instead, he would just represent his country as one of the best pass-rushers in the world.
