Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett was simply a bystander as a 27-year-old man by the name of JJ Remmy was attempting to replace his broken iPhone.

Showing his altruistic ways as the Ohio Apple Store, Garrett overheard a conversation that included the young man indicating he couldn’t afford to pay the $116.00 for a new phone.

What did Garrett do? Well, he paid for the phone and helped the young man avoid having to walk out of the store without one.

“I literally almost broke down man,” Remmy said, via TMZ Sports. “I had no cash. Spent the rest of my money getting my title for my car.”

Now that is one heck of a story right there. At a time when most off-field news surrounding NFL players are not good, Garrett stepped into the spotlight to show us all is not lost around the football world.

Garrett signed a four-year, $30 million rookie deal with Cleveland after they made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. It’s not like he’s going to miss the $116.00. But it sure helped a less-fortunate Remmy.
