Garrett says 'Big Ben' is his first target

Top pick Myles Garrett hopes to get his first NFL sack against Ben Roethlisberger in the season opener on Sept. 10 at FirstEnergy Stadium.

BEREA,Ohio--Myles Garrett said he's excited to make his NFL debut against the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger. The Browns host the Steelers on Sept. 10 at FirstEnergy Stadium in the 2017 NFL season opener.

"He's my first target," Garrett said. "I've been watching (him) for a very long time just growing up. I finally get to face him and I'm going to get to scheme against him and his left tackle and his whole offensive line."

Garrett said he wants to set the NFL rookie sack record.  In three years with the Aggies, Garrett had 32.5 sacks and 48.5 tackles for loss.

"As you’ve heard, I have some pretty lofty goals for myself," Garrett said. "I do not really listen to anyone else’s expectations. I keep myself grounded with my family and my friends. They also help me keep my head straight and keep focused. I am not worried about a mistake or a negative comment anybody else wants to make. I have the best I could ever dream of right now. If I could just maintain my focus and keep working hard on the field, it will stay that way.”
