Myles Garrett believes the 2021 Cleveland Browns defense is poised to give a lot of opposing quarterbacks some sleepless nights.

"I think we can do a lot. I don’t know what we’re doing in the draft, that’s all up to (the general manager)," Garrett said, according to's Mary Kay Cabot.

"But with the pieces we have now, I think we’ll be very scary, so I’m looking forward to it. Getting on the field, taking the ball away and putting it back in our offense's hands, and them getting the ball back for us."

Cleveland has been very active in free agency this offseason, focusing primarily on the defensive side of the ball. The club's most recent splash was signing pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney.

Pairing Clowney and Garrett gives the Browns two former No. 1 overall picks on the edge. Garrett shared his excitement for his new teammate's arrival and offered a glowing review of his capabilities.

"I know everyone else is looking forward to it, and so am I," Garrett noted.

"I know the guy is aggressive, really gets after it and he has a motor, keeps attacking, plays the run well, and (is) a good pass rusher. He’s an athletic specimen like someone I know on the Browns, so it will be fun. It really will."

Clowney wasn't Cleveland's only addition to its revamped defense. The club also brought in pass-rusher Takkarist McKinley and defensive backs John Johnson and Troy Hill to bolster the unit.

The Browns' defense finished 21st in points allowed last season and registered 38 sacks, with Garrett being responsible for 12.
