  • Browns, David Njoku Agree On Four-Year Extension

    The Cleveland Browns and franchise-tagged tight end David Njoku agreed in principle on a four-year, $56.75 million contract extension on Friday, according to sources. He'll receive $28 million guaranteed at signing that averages $14.1875 million per year, making him the fifth-highest paid tight end in the league. It seems like a pretty hefty contract for a tight end that had only 36 catches for 475 yards and four touchdowns on 53 targets in 16 games (11 starts) in 2021, but Njoku should have a much bigger pass-catching role with Austin Hooper no longer in town. Njoku's best season came in 2018, when he had 56 receptions for 639 yards and four scores. He should have a higher ceiling with quarterback Deshaun Watson under center as well.

Still, the veteran may decline such an offer to look for even more cash moving forward, primarily if he expects to benefit from the presence of Deshaun Watson, assuming he plays. Nevertheless, considering Njoku's lack of reliability over the years, he needs to do a lot of convincing before earning the trust of fantasy managers.
