Former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett had a message meant for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Friday. The 21-year-old really wants to play for the Cowboys, and he has a plan on how the franchise can make it happen. He said in an ESPN video, with a smile:
“I’m speaking to you Jerry. Listen, Mr. Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescott is leading our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks and give ’em to Cleveland, so you can pick me up. Please. I’d love to play in Dallas. Make it happen.”
The smile on his face suggests he knows exactly how much of a long shot this is, but hey, it can’t hurt, right?
USA TODAY Sports’ Nate Davis has projected Garrett to be picked No. 1 by the Cleveland Browns.
But regardless of which team picks him, Garrett has already said he won’t be at the draft. He told the Houston Chronicle he’ll be at home with friends and family instead.
