Myles Garrett's offseason workout routine appears to include basketball at the local gym. 

The Cleveland Browns' All-Pro pass-rusher shared a Twitter video on Wednesday of himself dunking on some hapless defenders who most certainly don't check in at 6-foot-4 and 272 pounds.

The clip also includes some nifty behind-the-back transition dribbling while omitting any bricks that he may or may not have thrown up.

Will Browns shut down Myles Garrett down?

While the game looks like fun for Garrett, there's a better than decent chance it doesn't put a smile on the faces of Browns brass. The Browns are fresh off their first playoff win since 1994 and among the betting favorites (+1400) to win the Super Bowl next season. Garrett's a big part of those plans.

Management's not likely into the added injury risk that almost anyone who's played pickup basketball is painfully aware of.

Three days later, general manager Pat Veach vowed to Chiefs fans that Mahomes' pickup hoops days — and the corresponding injury risk — were done.

“The Kingdom can be assured: No more basketball for Pat,” Veach said during a local radio interview. “We were able to nip that in the bud.”

Don't be surprised to hear a similar proclamation from Browns general manager Andrew Berry in the coming days. While it would surely be disappointing for Garrett and even the dudes he's dunking on, it would be in his and the Browns' best interests.
