Myles Garrett apparently wants to stay home.
And not just to watch the draft.
Garrett, a former Texas A&M star, made a plea on ESPN.com to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to make a deal with the Cleveland Browns to keep him in Texas.
“I’m speaking to you, Jerry,” Garrett says on the video. “Mr. (Jason) Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescott is leading our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, and give them to Cleveland so you can pick me up, please.
“I’d love to play in Dallas, let’s make it happen.”
