Top prospect Garrett pleads to be taken by Cowboys, says he'll skip draft in Philly

Former Texas A&M star Myles Garrett is viewed as the top prospect in the 2017 NFL draft and the likely the No. 1 overall pick of the Cleveland Browns.

However, Garrett has another team on his radar. The defensive end made a home video plea to  Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys to trade up and draft him.

“I’m speaking to you, Jerry. Mr. (Jason) Garrett (Cowboys head coach), make it happen,” Garrett said. “I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple of picks and give them to Cleveland (who holds the No. 1 pick in the draft) so you can pick me up. Please, I’d love to play in Dallas. Just make it happen.”

It makes sense why Garrett wants to stay in his home state and play for the Cowboys. They’re coming off a 13-3 season and if not for a few ridiculous throws from Aaron Rodgers, the Cowboys are in the NFC Championship game. Not to mention, they had two rookies in Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott who both had stellar seasons.

Still, Garrett will more than likely get chosen by the Browns, who are coming off an abysmal 1-15 season.

Garrett made more news on Friday by stating to the Houston Chronicle that he won't be attending this year's draft in Philadelphia.

“I’m staying at home,” he told the newspaper.

A look at Eagles' odds of winning Super Bowl LII

A look at Eagles' odds of winning Super Bowl LII

Place your bets today, Eagles fans. The Birds have 50/1 odds to win Super bowl LII, according to Bovada.

The other franchises tied with the Eagles at 50/1 are the Bengals, Dolphins, Saints, Titans and Redskins. 

The Birds were given the same odds to win Super Bowl LI entering this past season. At least they are consistent, right?

The newly-crowned New England Patriots have the shortest odds to win Super Bowl LII with 5/1 odds, while the Cowboys are tied for second with the Packers at 9/1. 

As for the rest of the NFC East, the Giants are given 25/1 odds. The Panthers, Colts, and Chiefs were also tied with the same odds.   

The longest Super Bowl odds belong to the 49ers and Browns at 150/1. 

Angry, awful human Chris Christie calls Eagles fans 'generally angry, awful people'

Angry, awful human Chris Christie calls Eagles fans 'generally angry, awful people'

When he's not battling bridge scandals, getting kicked off trainsfalling out of chairs, making trips to McDonald's for Donald Trump, or eating M&M's, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie sure seems to be fond of insulting Philadelphia Eagles fans.

The oversized personality was at it again this morning when he spoke with the Boomer and Carton show up on New York's WFAN.

Christie is a well-documented Dallas Cowboys fan and again discussed his fandom and why people seem to care about it.

And in case you needed a reminder, the Cowboys' season is currently over and they didn't even win a single playoff game. Sad!

“I understand why people are interested if you are a public figure, as to who you root for,” Christie said. “They’re interested. But the hostility, I will tell you that I take for being a Cowboys fan — and this is what I say to Giants fans all the time, and Eagles fans. Now Eagles fans I can understand it from a little more because the Eagles do suck and they’ve sucked for a long time. And their fans are generally angry, awful people.”

He then goes on to say he's not a front runner for liking the Cowboys because they've been far less successful over the last ten years than the New York Giants. Mostly true.
