Garrett asks Jones to trade Romo to Browns so he can play for Cowboys

Updated: 

Looks like potential number NFL draft pick Myles Garrett does not want to play in Cleveland. He wants to stay close to home. 

In fact he is already asking for a trade before even being drafted by the Cleveland Browns.

The defensive end would rather stay close to Texas A&M and play for the Dallas Cowboys.

"I'm speaking to you, Jerry [Jones]," Garrett said in a video posted to ESPN.com.

"Mr. [coach Jason] Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescott leads our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, and give them to Cleveland so you can pick me up.

"Please, I'd love to play in Dallas, just make it happen."

Cleveland do need a quarterback after all but the Cowboys own the number 28 pick of the draft, though they have a number of holes they need to fill on defence and risking their future on Garrett is not wise.

Garrett's trade request appeared to be more of a joke than an actual suggestion but the defensive end has said in the past he prefers not to play in a cold-weather city.

There is also the fact that he was born and raised in Arlington, Texas, which just happens to be where the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium is located.
