The NFL Draft prospect was supposed to go on Mike & Mike this morning. He didn't.
Myles Garrett, the potential No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, is at ESPN today and he apparently was supposed on go on Mike & Mike this morning. He allegedly bailed on the interview.
“I’m told there is some sort of issue that he has with something you have said,” Greenberg said, per The Big Lead. “That just is what it is — that would be neither the first nor last time that has happened.”
The "he" in that sentence is Booger McFarland, a college football analyst who filled in for Mike Golic on the show this morning.
McFarland addressed the incident on Twitter.
"Myles Garrett didn't wanna come on due to critical comments I've said in past about his play," McFarland wrote.
McFarland expounded on his criticism during the show.
“Being an athlete doesn’t make you a football player. Ask Mike Mamula, who tore up the Combine but couldn’t break an egg in the NFL. I’m not saying Myles Garrett is gonna do that, but I just look at the tape — and the tape never lies, Greeny — and the tape has said that although he is a tremendous athlete, I just wonder how much does he love playing defensive line and being hit and the collisions that take place time after time. The tape says he’s been hesitant to do that over the last couple years,” McFarland said.
If all of this is true, it's not a great look for the Texas A&M star.
