David Njoku Removes Trade Request, Commits to Browns

Tight end David Njoku tweeted on Saturday that he’s “all in” with the Cleveland Browns, nearly one month after requesting a trade from the team that made him a first-round pick back in 2017.

Njoku’s agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN that after “some good meetings” with general manager Andrew Berry and now is fully committed to the team.

This also comes days after Kevin Stefanski told the media that the team’s stance hasn’t changed in granting the former trade request and that the Browns believe in Njoku and were “excited to work with him.”

Njoku is entering his fourth season and is poised to have a successful season in Stefanski’s offense which used multiple tight ends in 57% of the snaps with the Minnesota Vikings where Stefanski was the offensive coordinator.

While the Browns did sign Austin Hooper in free agency and drafted FAU tight end Harrison Bryant in the fourth round, Njoku is still a big part of the Browns offense which could make some noise as one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL this upcoming season.

Njoku has 93 catches for 1,066 yards and nine touchdowns in his first three seasons but had a poor 2019 campaign due to injury and a rift with former head coach Freddie Kitchens.
