The Player’s Tribune chats to American Football star Myles Garrett about his plans to become a Palaeontologist once he’s retired from sport.
Athletes retire much, much earlier than most people. Some people can be working into their 70s in normal careers, but in sports like American football, your career can be over at as young as 30 years old. A lot of players do different things. Some do punditry, some go into fashion, but it’s unusual to step away from the world of entertainment completely.
Not for Myles though. He’s developed a love for palaeontology whilst being a player for the Cleveland Browns and plans to make a career in the field once he retires. In this interview, he explains how he first became interested in dinosaurs and why he wanted to choose such an unusual career path. He says that he loves playing American football, but he wants to have a clean break from the sport once he retires. It’s refreshing to see a sportsman looking forward to their post-career life and seeing it as an opportunity to try something totally new.
