Despite the fact that Browns TE David Njoku and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, have requested a trade, Cleveland still sees the former first-round pick as a big part of their offense. (Josina Anderson on Twitter)
The Browns may have a difficult time trading Njoku prior to the start of training camp, and that could be why they’re saying the tight end is a big part of their plans. Cleveland brought in Austin Hooper on a four-year deal for a reason, clearly because they don’t see Njoku as the pass-catching option they desire. Both Njoku and his agent feel as if he’d be better suited as the number one option on another team, hence the trade request.
