The thought was enough to make Robaire Smith giggle.

Myles Garrett, multi-time All-Pro, teaming up with Jim Schwartz, Super Bowl champion defensive coordinator. That reality is coming to the Browns now that they’re hiring Schwartz, who has spent the last two seasons as a senior defensive assistant with the Tennessee Titans, to be their new defensive coordinator.

Smith was asked how much Garrett could thrive working in Schwartz’s defensive scheme. The former Browns, Titans and Houston Texans defensive lineman took exception to the choice of verb used to describe the potential.

“You said ‘could he,’ or ‘will he,'” Smith said in a phone interview with the Beacon Journal. “Because he’s going to thrive, man. I don’t, with that guy, man, shoot, I don’t see too much where he can’t. But this right here, he definitely going to love this a little more. I’m assuming they’re probably going to stay in the 4-3 of some sort. With (Garrett) out there, man, I don’t think no one’s going to be able to block him away the way Jim lets him go. You know what I mean? So I think with the scheme, if Jim running his scheme, woo, I dunno, it could get scary man, get very scary.”
