Browns ink No. 1 overall pick Garrett
(TSX / STATS) -- Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the top overall pick of the 2017 draft, signed his four-year rookie contract on Friday.
The deal is worth an estimated $30.4 million with a $20.25 million signing bonus. The contract comes with a team option for the fifth season in 2021.
The Browns posted a video on Twitter of Garrett filling out the contract while Seal's "Kiss From A Rose" played in the background.
Garrett collected 141 tackles (47 for loss), 31 sacks and forced seven fumbles during his three-year career at Texas A&M. The 6-foot-4 1/2, 272-pound Aggies standout was held to 8 1/2 sacks last season while he dealt with a high-ankle sprain.
Garrett caused a stir shortly after being drafted by saying he was targeting Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for his first sack. The Browns open the 2017 season against the AFC North rival Steelers.
With Garrett in the fold, Cleveland has signed six of the 10 players it drafted last month.
