Myles Garrett is about to get paid!

According to reports, Cleveland Browns are close to signing defensive end to a massive five-year, $125 million contract extension that would make him the highest paid pass rusher in the NFL.

Although the deal isn’t official, the words of Browns general manager Andrew Berry clearly indicate they are interested in locking him up long-term.

“You know we view him as a long-term member of the organization and we love the player, love the person as well…So we certainly hope that he’s going to be a Brown for years to come.” said Berry.

The 24-year old, who was selected first overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, has accumulated 104 combined tackles, 30.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and four passes defended over a span of three NFL seasons and 37 combined games.

He was also selected to the Pro Bowl in 2018.

Longtime Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson had himself quite the career. From 2001-2011, he recorded 766 receptions for 11,059 receiving yards and 67 touchdowns. He was also a six-time Pro Bowler, a three-time First-team All-Pro, and was a one-time NFL receiving yards leader (2006).

What does he attribute the success too? Well mostly hard work. But he did admit an unexpected medication helped him on the field.

“I took viagra before every game & people thought they’d stop me, if my stat line was bad i wasn’t covered, the pass was just incomplete” Johnson posted through his official Twitter account on Tuesday.

When his followers questioned the validity of that story, he doubled down.

“No it wasn’t a joke, I really took viagra before games, the increase in blood flow made me unbelievable [sic] explosive in & out of my routes.” 

He did it to maximize his performance, and get around the league’s performance enhancing drugs at the time.
