Cleveland Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett will finally make his much-anticipated regular season debut against the Jets in Week 5. Unfortunately, it may be too late for him to affect the Browns’ playoff fortunes.
After the evaluations, the Browns decided that Garrett was not yet ready for regular season action. Instead, Cleveland held their prized prospect out another week.
What does this mean for the Browns? The 0-4 Browns need all the help they can get. This defensive unit has only accumulated nine sacks in four games, all losses of varying embarrassment. Coming out of Texas A&M, Garrett was known as a pass-rushing specialist, totaling 31 sacks and seven forced fumbles during his three-year stint in college. While he’s raw, his ridiculous athletic talent should help him make an immediate impact in the NFL. Cleveland needs his pass-rushing skills and high motor to help this front seven.
Some people in local television who didn’t initially plan to make Buffalo their last career stop have stayed here after having a relationship with someone here. Javad has been dating WIVB-TV anchor Nalina Shapiro for more than a year. It isn’t a secret, but I generally include such personal information only when it is relevant to what people see on TV or to broadcaster’s careers.
Asked if his personal life is in the equation as he considers his options as some people suspect it might, Javad responded: My personal life is not relevant to this decision. My family and friends support me no matter what.
