With players set to report to Berea for strength and conditioning drills today, Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku tweeted the following, which was noteworthy in the sense that he requested a trade not too long ago:
I’m all in Cleveland. Time to work.— Chief David Njoku (@David_Njoku80) August 1, 2020
Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, Njoku has since had a change of heart and wants to stay in Cleveland. His new agent, Drew Rosenhaus, then confirmed this with the local media via text message, citing positive meetings he’s had with the Browns’ front office.
“David Njoku has had some good meetings with the new Browns organization including GM Andrew Berry and he has decided to give the team his full commitment right now and go from there.”
Well, there you have it! Njoku is back. At this point, I honestly don’t care about brushing this under the rug. When he requested the trade, I felt he can still be a big asset as a dynamic two-tight-end receiving threat with Austin Hooper, and him staying allows us to see that through.
