The Cleveland Browns are reported to be”very close” to a deal with tight end David Njoku. Njoku isn’t present at OTA’s as he seeks a long-term extension. The Browns franchise-tagged Njoku back in March and he would earn $10.9 million in 2022 if he played on the tag without an extension. The Browns and Njoku have until July 15th to reach an agreement if Njoku doesn’t want to play on the franchise tag.
Reports surfaced just last week that the Browns have an offer on the table that would pay Njoku over $13 million annually on a multi-year extension. The reported offer would make David Njoku a top-five paid TE in the NFL based on annual contract value. According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the final hurdle to reaching an agreement may be tied to guaranteed money.
