Sports reporter spots Myles Garrett being Myles Garrett: talking to a homeless man

A host for a Cleveland sports radio show spotted Myles Garrett doing something everyone in Cleveland has come to associate him with over the years: Myles just being Myles doing an act of kindness.

Jonathan Peterlin, host and anchor for sports radio show 92.3 The Fan, spotted Myles walking in downtown Cleveland, by himself, doing what Myles does best: being nice to strangers.

On Monday, Peterlin took to Twitter to post this discovery, one that has received more than 11,000 likes and 1,200 retweets.

He was spending his newly found extra free time talking to a homeless guy on Euclid Avenue.

In a follow up tweet, Peterlin spotted Garrett talking to fellow passengers at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport on Tuesday, a day before his appeal hearing in New York.

Since the announcement of his suspension, Clevelanders have showed outpouring support for Garrett because at the end of the day, the Myles that Cleveland knows and loves is one that hand delivers a signed jersey to a fan, creates a meet-and-greet with puppies and even buying a fan a new phone because he couldn't afford one.

While one incident caught on national television may be hard to forget, Northeast Ohio, a place where second chances are given, seems to be standing behind on Garrett.
