David Njoku asks the Cleveland Browns for a Trade

David Njoku

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku asks the team to trade him through is agent Drew Rosenhaus according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Njoku not only asks for the trade but is ‘intent’ on being dealt.

This past offseason the Cleveland Browns signed two-time Pro Bowl tight end Austin Hooper to a four-year, $44 million contract ($23 million guaranteed). That contract made Hooper the highest-paid tight end in the NFL.

Signing Hooper doesn’t necessarily take Njoku out of the lineup for the Browns. New head coach Kevin Stefanski ran multiple tight end sets often when he was the offensive coordinator in Minnesota with Kyle Rudolph and rookie second-round pick Irv Smith Jr.

However, rumors did come out previously that Njoku wanted to get traded before the Browns signed Hooper.

The Cleveland Browns drafted Njoku with the 29th overall pick of the First Round of the 2017 NFL Draft. After putting up a career-high 639 yards in his second season, Njoku was limited to only four games in 2019-20 because of a broken wrist. In April the Browns picked up Njoku’s fifth-year option.
