The Cleveland Browns have made big moves this off-season. Today, we preview Browns Super Bowl 2021 odds to bet on Browns. The Browns are sitting at +3000 to win Super Bowl 2021.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku has requested that the Browns trade him before the start of training camp. Why? Because he does not fit in.
The 23-year-old tight end, who was selected with the 29th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Played in only four games last season. This after suffering a concussion and a broken wrist in Week 2, finishing the year with five receptions for 41 yards and one touchdown.
During the 2018 season he had 56 catches for 639 yards and four touchdowns. The potential was there. Now what happens to the Browns?
Despite the limited action he saw last season, the Browns had been impressed with his performance since he joined the team and announced in April that they would exercise Njoku’s fifth-year option, worth $6.4 million.

While the Browns have expressed interest in keeping him on the team, Njoku is not sure Cleveland is the right fit for him anymore after the team spent the offseason adding depth to the position by signing Pro Bowl tight end Austin Hooper to a four-year, $44 million deal with $23 million guaranteed in March, and drafting Harrison Bryant in the fourth round of the 2020 draft.

Even though new tight end coach Kevin Stefanski believes all three players will get significant playing time, Njoku doesn’t feel he will get enough touches and wants to play on a team that will put his talent to good use.
“It is in David’s best interest to find a new team at this time,” Njoku’s agent Drew Rosenhaus said.
With the Browns having Njoku under contract for another year, the team likely won’t be in a rush to trade their young tight end, especially if there is an injury at the position during training camp. However, if Hooper plays as well as he did last year and Bryant emerges as a quality backup, the Browns will likely grant Njoku his wish.
