Signing first-round draft picks has become a formality in the NFL – Joey Bosa and the 2016 Chargers notwithstanding.
But it’s still a thing when the first overall pick in the draft puts pen to paper, and rookie Browns defensive end Myles Garrett did just that Friday – oddly enough, with Seal’s “Kiss from a Rose” playing in the background.
Seems a little mellow for a player expected to terrorize NFL quarterbacks, but Garrett is known to be a bit of a free thinker. He can buy as many Seal downloads as he wants with the $30,427,000 Cleveland.com reports his new four-year contract is worth. The deal, which includes a $20 million signing bonus, has the fifth-year option that comes standard with all first-round picks.
