TE preview: Browns fans still split on if Njoku will be traded, intrigued by undrafted rookie

New, comments

Plus, how many catches will Austin Hooper have in 2020?

Cincinnati Bengals v Cleveland Browns

This past week, we finished covering the tight end position in our training camp previews. At the end of each preview, we include a poll to gauge fan feedback heading into the season.

In Part 1, we started off by asking how many catches fans think Austin Hooper will have: 70 or more catches, or less than 70 catches. 56% of fans think Hooper will have fewer than 70 catches. Hooper has had 71 and 75 catches, respectively, over the past two seasons. In Minnesota, Kyle Rudolph only had 39 catches a year ago. Backup Irv Smith Jr. had 36 catches. Based on those numbers, I’d lean toward Hooper falling south of 70 catches too.

The other question in Part 1 asked if fans think David Njoku will be traded or not. Only 44% of fans think he’ll be traded — so it’s a mixed feeling right now.

In Part 2, we asked which of the remaining three tight ends fans would like to see on the roster. Fans have made it clear they don’t care much for Pharaoh Brown, who only received 6% of the vote. Stephen Carlson led the way with 56% of the vote, but undrafted free agent Nate Wieting received a respectable 38% of the vote.

If only one of these tight ends could make the roster, who would it be?
