Myles Garrett is a big dude. The Cleveland Browns former No. 1 overall pick out of Texas A&M walks around at 6-foot-4, 272-pounds.
He’s used to being a bigger guy in the crowd, but the All-Pro defensive end was caught off guard by a fan who asked about his shoe size at Bradley International Airport (BDL) Connecticut.
It escalated from there.
Older gentlemen at the airport: *taps me* dang, you got some skis strapped onto your feet? What size are those suckers
Me: *takes off headphones*
Him: you know what they say about you fellas and big feet?
UPDATE: Garrett has since deleted the tweet.
Maybe introduce yourself before a comment like that. Come on man!
Garrett is coming off of his first Pro Bowl season. He notched 44 total tackles, including 35 solo stops, playing in all 16 games. He also recorded 13.5 sacks, earning him a second-team All-Pro nod.
Myles Garrett Pays Off Fans Phone
It’s not the first interesting interaction Garrett has had with a fan this season — albeit the last one that went viral was a little less NSFW.
Garrett was shopping at a mall in Ohio when he ran into JJ Remmy. The 27-year-old Remmy needed a new phone but the cost was $115.99. That was money Remmy didn’t have, saying he had spent the rest of his cash on getting the title for his car.
That’s where Garrett stepped in with a big play, covering the bill. Taking a picture with the towering pass-rusher was icing on the cake for Remmy.
“Myles Garrett I won’t ever forget what you did,” Remmy wrote in his post thanking the Browns’ star. “I literally almost broke down man.”
Myles Garrett Will Be Unleashed in 2019
Garrett made some headlines this offseason for saying that former defensive coordinator and interim head coach Gregg Williams limited him during the season, telling him to only use two pass-rush moves.
“I hopefully have more freedom to be the player I want to be,” Garrett said. “[Former defensive coordinator and interim head coach] Gregg [Williams] was more like: ‘You win with these two moves. I don’t want to see anything else out of you.’ It’s kind of hard with two moves.”
