The expectations were high for the Cleveland Browns entering the 2019 NFL season. What appeared to be intriguing on paper didn’t quite translate in the win column when it came time to make an impact on the field. On top of that, Myles Garrett made headlines for a controversial swing of his helmet.
A new season calls for a clean slate and Garrett will look to turn the attention away from his debacle with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph to his play on the field.
Despite being suspended after 10 games, Garrett still managed to achieve totals of 29 combined tackles (11 for loss), 10.0 sacks, and 18 QB hits along with a pair of forced fumbles.
Garrett’s play through three seasons was enough to land him a five-year, $125 million contract with $100 million in guarantees. The amount of guaranteed money appeared to be impacted by the helmet incident, but regardless, he became the highest-paid non-quarterback in history.
With all of that being said, let’s take a look at what the Browns should expect from Myles Garrett during the 2020 NFL season.
