Cleveland Browns rookie defensive lineman Myles Garrett began his pro career with a sack on his first NFL play early in Sunday's game versus the New York Jets at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The 21-year-old further endeared himself to Cleveland fans later in the contest.

With under two minutes to play in the first half, Garrett brought down New York quarterback Josh McCown for his second sack.

The rookie then dropped to a single knee and performed a celebration made famous by Cleveland Cavaliers guard and local fan favorite J.R. Smith.

At this rate, Garrett may be asked to throw a ceremonial first pitch if the Cleveland Indians make it back to the World Series.
