BEREA, Ohio – The first day of Cleveland Browns training camp consisted of a small group of fans leading the cheers for players as they came onto the field.
On Friday at the second day of camp, though, the Wadsworth High School football team greeted and clapped for the Browns as they came out for practice.
As the team continued through practice, defensive end Myles Garrett was coming off the ball fast, as usual, during drills. Here’s some of what he did during Day 2 of training camp.
1. A chat with Freddie Kitchens during stretching
The Browns started off practice stretching to some classic Motown hits such as The Jackson 5’s “ABC” and Diana Ross’ “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
As Garrett stretched with his teammates, he talked with coach Freddie Kitchens.
2. Throwing a football into the stands
Garrett and the defensive line had a water break around 10:40 a.m., and as Garrett got a quick rest, he briefly interacted with the fans.
He threw a football into the stands, and a few fans went to grab it. Before Garrett had to go back to work, he asked the fan to throw the football back.
Training camp is one of the few times where fans can see players up close, and Garrett seems to enjoy making those connections.
3. Changing sides
Garrett has rushed primarily from the right end in his career, but he’s likely going to play more on the left end this season as the Browns try to move around him and Olivier Vernon to give offenses another look.
During an 11-on-11 drill, Garrett got in a rep from the left side of the defensive line.
