Browns’ player Myles Garrett says he could beat up Logan Paul.
Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns is known for many things. What he won’t be known for is fighting Logan Paul, North East Ohio’s own. For the sake of humanity, we hope he could. For those unfamiliar with Paul, Logan and his younger brother Jake are YouTube celebrities from North East, Ohio. Both men over the last few years have transitioned from making YouTube prank and “reality” videos to taking up boxing careers. Logan Paul famously fought Floyd Mayweather and got outclassed despite the size and strength advantage, while Jake Paul is coming off of a win over MMA legend Ben Askren.
Askren, who retired from MMA due to needing a hip replacement was known as one of the best wrestlers to ever grace the sport. No one ever confused him for a boxer. Now Jake Paul is set to fight another MMA legend, Tyron Woodley in a boxing match for Showtime on Aug. 29. Logan is looking for his next bout.
One name that won’t be taking up the challenge to fight a Paul brother is future Browns‘ legend Garrett. Speaking to Complex, Garrett was asked of any post-career goals he may have for himself and was asked if he’d take a fight against Logan Paul.
Myles Garrett has no time for Logan Paul or his YouTube shenanigans
Garrett was very clear about if he’d fight Logan Paul, telling Complex;
"I’d beat the brakes off of Logan Paul But I have bigger fish to fry."
Part of me hopes that Garrett changes his mind, as the Paul brothers are among the worst things about mainstream culture right now. Sure, guys are getting nice paydays fighting them, but no one needs to see these once-proud ex-fighters get wrecked. Watching Garrett chase down Logan Paul, however, would be insanely entertaining, just for the sure size and strength difference.

Garrett does have bigger plans post-football, like getting into acting as another Browns legend once did in Jim Brown;
"I got a career to take care of. But I feel like I’d like to be like Jim Brown, like he expanded his whole avenues of where he was going and what he was doing. I’d liked to do voiceover work with certain shows that I’ve watched, like anime. That’d be real fun. Get into movies and TV shows, and find a way to just stay busy, as well as to entertain that historical and paleontological side in my brain that wants to go do things all over the world."
One other thing that Garrett knows he doesn’t want to do, besides beating Logan Paul into a stain, is provide commentary on football games. Once football is over for Garrett, it’ll stay over.
The interview with Complex is very interesting. He talks about his love of the first Jurrasic Park film (but apparently not the sequels), and how this season is coming together while working as a leader with Baker Mayfield.
What I urge everyone to go read, especially if you’re a Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah fan, is Owusu-Koramoah’s response to Garrett, when Garrett asked Owusu-Koramoah if he was going to bulk up in the weight room.
It might give you some incredible insight into who the young player is.
