Cleveland Browns star Miles Garrett admits he didn't respond to Baker Mayfield's heartfelt text message

Following his trade with the Carolina Panthers earlier this off-season.

"He said he appreciates the time we got to spend together and get to know each other and grow together,"

Garrett told in an interview last week.

"I really didn't say anything.

I really didn't have much to say and didn't know how to answer it, so I didn't. ,

1 overall selection played four seasons together in Cleveland.

The partnership ended with a messy breakup as Mayfield requested a trade away from Brown a few days before Deshan Watson was acquired by the team in a blockbuster business deal.

"I read (the text) but you know, there was some disagreement that we had at a base level and I'm not mad at the guy or feeling any way towards it,

But I didn't know how to answer that, so I didn't," Garrett said.

The Browns will travel to Charlotte to face Mayfield's new team on Sunday.

"I still think he's one hell of a competitor and he's a great guy to have by your side and I root for him," Garrett said.

"I think he has a good family, but he's the opposition now, and at the end of the day, I have to take him out."

Sunday's season opener will start at 1 pm. ET.
