The Browns have signed 2017 first-overall pick Myles Garrett, the team announced Friday. It’s a four-year fully guaranteed deal worth $30.4 million, including a $20.25 million signing bonus, according to NFL.com‘s Ian Rapoport.

By comparison, 2016 No. 1 pick Jared Goff signed a four-year deal worth a fully guaranteed $27.9 million, including a $18.5 million signing bonus. Unlike Goff, who is subject to a 13.3 percent income tax in California, Ohio’s income tax tops out at 4.9 percent.

Left tackle Joe Thomas, the Browns’ 2007 first-round pick, plans to do everything in his power to help Garrett grow into a great NFL player.

Garrett’s first order of business once the regular-season gets underway? Shortly after he was drafted he told ESPN’s Randy Moss that “I’m going to try to take [Ben Roethlisberger] down,” adding that he’s been following the Steelers quarterback’s career for “a very long time” and “I can’t wait to face him.”

The Browns and Steelers meet in Week 1.
