Browns star Myles Garrett calls out teammate Jadeveon Clowney for recent comments
The Cleveland Browns are heading into the season finale without a possibility of a playoff berth, but now with another storyline around the franchise.
Star pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney’s future in Cleveland has become the center of attention in recent days after he essentially confirmed that he wasn’t returning in 2023 because he believes the team is favoring Myles Garrett.
“You’re all trying to get [Garrett] into the Hall of Fame instead of winning games,” Clowney said via ESPN. “I don’t even think [Garrett] notices. I ain’t trying to say it’s him. I try to get along with everybody I play with. Me and him don’t have a problem. It ain’t his fault, and it’s B.S., and I don’t have time for it.”
It was only a matter of time before the chatter made its way back around to Garrett, who voiced that wished things were handled differently.
“I knew he was frustrated. We’ve all been frustrated; we’re not winning,” Garrett said. “I wish we could’ve talked about this man-to-man. … I wish he would have handled it a little bit differently.”
Clowney’s issues have cropped up throughout the season leading to the team deciding to rule him out for Week 18 action. The former Pro Bowler struggled in 2022, recording only sacks, and missed four games due to ankle issues and a concussion.

Cleveland will likely head in another direction to pair another pass rusher along Garrett, who has a team-high 15 sacks going into the season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
