The Cleveland Browns appear set to have quite the offense in 2020 but David Njoku doesn’t want to be apart of it. The 23-year-old asked the team for a trade with the goal of being on a new team prior to the start of training camp.
Earlier in the offseason, the Browns signed former Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper in free agency. Cleveland furthered its effort to add talent at this position by selecting Harrison Bryant in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
If Njoku plays with the Browns in 2020, he is slotted to fill the secondary tight end role in an offensive system that favors utilizing multiple tight ends. Seeking a trade makes sense considering plenty of teams needing to add talent at this position could offer a larger role for him in their offense.
It remains to seen how much compensation the Browns could receive in a potential trade involving Njoku. He did appear in just four games last season so that doesn’t help Cleveland in the value department. The potential he displayed in 2018 was quite intriguing, nevertheless.
With taking all of that into consideration, let’s take a look at five teams that should pursue a David Njoku trade.
