Five years into his NFL career and Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has embraced the city he calls home.
It’s his way of giving back to the community that welcomed him after he was selected first overall in the 2017 draft.
He has made himself available in major activities like this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend wherein he played in the Celebrity Game.
He showed his basketball talent in front of the same people that cheer for him when he sacks the other team’s quarterback.
Speaking of basketball, it seems like he helped the Cavaliers reveal their new jerseys, as shown in this short clip.

The video showed Garrett wearing the Cavaliers jersey while acting as if he is coaching.
The new jerseys stay true to the team’s traditional colors before it was changed during the 1980s and 1990s.
This is Garrett’s next engagement with the Cavaliers after joining the warmups during the Summer League.
Garrett Is Blending Well In Cleveland
He undeniably loves Cleveland because he has immersed himself in the city’s basketball team.
If only football’s season did not overlap with basketball, Garrett might have played for the Cavaliers too.
After all, the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards named him Pro Athlete of the Year.
Still, he is doing everything he can to promote Cleveland which further blends him into the community.
As he helps drum up support for the Cavs, the team will also help the Browns generate interest before the NFL season starts.
Luckily for him, he gets to stay in Cleveland for a while after signing a five-year deal in 2020.
Therefore, he will have more opportunities in engaging the people of Cleveland to come out and support their teams.
