Texas A&M star and top NFL Draft prospect Myles Garrett ruffled some feathers when he said he wanted the Dallas Cowboys to trade Tony Romo to the Cleveland Browns so he could play in his home state.
The lighthearted video quickly turned into controversy for Garrett. On Saturday he had to make a quick reversal and reaffirm that he would be committed to any team that would draft him.
“People might say they’re this, they’re that, or I made a comment about cold weather and they kind of pointed toward Cleveland,” Garrett told Fox 26 Houston. “That doesn’t matter to me. I’ll play wherever they put me. And that’s the mindset. You go in with a mindset that you’re going to turn things around, you can make that contagious, and people start to believe in it, you can turn into a winning program wherever you go.”
Garrett is likely to go in the Top 5 of this year’s draft.
