Hall of Fame defensive linemen, it seems, are not impressed with Myles Garrett, who the Browns selected with the No. 1 overall pick in last month’s NFL Draft.
About a week before the draft, Warren Sapp called Garrett lazy. Then, while watching film with Garrett on the day of the draft, Smith called him slow.
Garrett, though, is taking Smith’s criticism as constructive and said he’ll use it to try to improve.
Most people wouldn’t say that, but he’s one of the greatest if not the greatest pass-rusher, Garrett said. If he thinks so and I want to be at his level one day, I got to take his advice and run with it.
Hamilton is entering the final season of his disastrous five-year, $125 million contract and will be paid $28 million this season, the vast majority of it by the Angels. He’s in Rangers camp on a minor-league deal, and though he expressed confidence before the latest injury that he would be able to break camp with the MLB team, the odds on him becoming a contributor in 2017 have been long from the outset.
Hamilton apparently doesn’t intend to simply walk away after his latest setback, but he’ll have plenty to prove to the Rangers before they devote a 25-man roster spot to him later this season.
