As Garrett leaves from a 2019 season that showed his skills and spotlighted his career’s largest transgression, the pass rusher’s goals are simple.
“Winning,” he said Saturday, via team transcript. “I want to go to the playoffs. You have so many goals. Everybody wants to be All-Pro. Everybody wants to be the best at their position. Everybody wants to be Defensive Player of the Year or wants to be recognized for success they have had on the field, but the ultimate success is team success. No matter how well I do, if we are no good, nobody will remember my season or what any of us did up front. I want us to ultimately have a stellar year as a defense, get to the playoffs and make a run. That is what I want to do.”
