According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Garrett's contract is for four years and worth $30.4 million, with a signing bonus of $20.25 million.
Garrett is a defensive end with the speed of a running back. But because Brown and Garrett play the same position and were drafted first overall by the same team, Brown will shadow Garrett like the Grim Reaper until Garrett proves he is worthy of the Browns' confidence. With the signing of Garrett, the Browns have now agreed to terms with six of their ten draft picks.
Garrett's signing comes days after he elicited a "holy smokes!" from coach Hue Jackson after exploding around the edge for a would-be sack of DeShone Kizer on day two of rookie camp. I love our young D linemen - him and [DL Caleb] Brantley and obviously Myles. "My expectations are definitely higher than what most others have for me". "He is just trying to teach me the tricks that I can get off the ball faster and do it even better".More news: Donald Trump interviews four candidates for post of FBI Director
Browns team captain Joe Thomas is also impressed with his new teammate.
Garrett, universally regarded as the top player in the draft last month, played in 34 career games at Texas A&M and finished with 31 sacks, 141 tackles and seven forced fumbles. So we hope surrounding him and doing the right things, he can become that great man. He was a two-time first-team All-American, unanimous consensus All-American in 2016 and a two-time All-SEC first-team selection (2015-16) and All-SEC second-team in 2014.
