Americans are celebrating Halloween across the United States and Garrett’s Vecna costume was part of the celebrations on Monday, October 31. However, reports have suggested that there might be a personal touch to the 26-year-old’s choice of Halloween costume this year.
As per reports, the Cleveland Browns defensive end is a huge fan of the popular Netflix show and his decision to dress up as Vecna, the show’s villain, was an attempt to troll Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow.
Garrett also went on to decorate his Ohio home with a Stranger Things theme, which was also reportedly part of his plans. In his home decorations, the defensive end put dummy replicas of his ex-teammate Baker Mayfield, who is currently a part of the Carolina Panthers squad and Joe Burrow, who is part of the Cincinnati Bengals squad that is playing the Cleveland Browns in Monday Night Football on Halloween.
