Harrison is dealing with a shoulder injury that’s expected to keep him out several weeks. He must miss three games on IR before he’s eligible to return.
Garrett, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2017. He just finished the third year of his four-year, $30.4 million fully guaranteed contract and was set to make a base salary of $4.61 million for the 2020 season when he agreed to a five-year extension worth $125 million with the Browns.
In 2020, Garrett has appeared in nine games for the Browns and recorded 31 tackles, 9.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and two recoveries.
Harrison, 23, was selected with the No. 93 overall pick out of Alabama by the Jaguars in 2018. He agreed to a four-year, $3,263,032 contract that includes an $803,032 signing bonus.
Harrison was in the third year of his rookie deal when the Jaguars traded him to the Browns heading into the 2020 season.
In 2020, Harrison has appeared in 10 games for the Browns and recorded 32 tackles, one sack, one fumble recovery, one interception returned for a touchdown and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated Harrison as the No. 12 safety out of 91 qualifying players.
