Cleveland Browns pass rusher Myles Garrett is making a big business move.

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Wednesday that Garrett has purchased a minority stake in the team, joining the group of investors under principal owner Dan Gilbert. Garrett will also serve as a brand ambassador for the organization.

“I have admired the Cavaliers organization’s hard work, tenacity and dedication to the community since my early days in Cleveland,” Garrett said in a statement. “To have the opportunity to join this impressive and purpose-filled franchise, under Dan’s leadership, is truly a dream come true.”

Garrett was drafted first overall by the Browns in 2017 and has been a Cleveland fixture since. This is certainly a clear signal that he is putting roots down and plans to be a big part of Cleveland for years to come.

Garrett has kept up his usual strong play this season. He has 7.5 sacks in six games and remains capable of crazy things on the football field.
