Myles Garrett on Halloween quarterback graveyard: I’m kind of a troll

Myles Garrett leads the NFL with seven sacks, 4.5 of which came against Bears quarterback Justin Fields. He hopes to bury more quarterbacks this season, beginning this week against his former Texas A&M teammate Kyler Murray.

The Browns pass rusher has decorated his front yard for Halloween with seven gravestones of NFL quarterbacks he faces this season — Murray, Justin Herbert, Fields, Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Burrow, Lamar Jackson and Mac Jones.

“The backstory of the cemetery? I’m kind of a troll a little bit, and people in my house like to have fun,” Garrett said after Friday’s practice, via Nate Ulrich of the Beacon Journal. “My family and friends, they thought it would be something cool to do for Halloween.”

It was Garrett’s father, Lawrence, who came up with the idea and hired someone to paint the headstones. Unfortunately for Garrett, the decorations have attracted unwelcome attention from gawkers. He said someone blocked his driveway Thursday.

Garrett, though, laughed at the notion he has become a “get-off-my-lawn” guy.

“They always seem to show up when I’m not there, so I don’t even get the chance to say, ‘Get off my lawn,'” Garrett said. “But I can’t say no to kids. When trick or treating comes around, I’ll definitely be there giving out candy. Like grown men and women just trying to drive up and say or do whatever or just trying to see me, please don’t.”

  1. He assaults an unprotected player yet somehow is still in the league. I’ve never seen Gruden swing a helmet and strike someone. Yet he’s cancelled. Troll? No I think Garrett is a criminal and the NFL is a party to it. Stop making excuses for him.

  2. NFL the place for second chances for some not all. Dude assaulted someone in front of thousands of fans and on a national broadcast in front of millions. Any normal person does that they are sued and or in jail. As a fan its exhausting to watch all the things the players get away with but its based off talent level. Shouldnt matter how good you are there will be great players to come. All it does is set the example that if you are one of the best at your sport you can do what you want laws and rules dont apply to you

  3. Hopefully he gets back home from the Steelers game in time to pass out some king size

  4. For the haters that posted, Garrett did get suspended for 6 games. Also, Rudolph did use the N word and started the fight. Move on. Garrett is a good dude and great player.

    If Rudolph used that word, I don’t think his lineman would’ve defended him to vigorously.

  6. I don’t like Garrett, but this is in good fun. People need to stop being so serious about or wanting to cancel everything.

  7. He is just a troll he is a first class jerk. Watch thru a whole game and watch his cheap shots….he will mess up again just wait.

  8. You won’t hear his name against the Patriots. They will gameplan against him.
