Cleveland Browns News: Big plans in place for David Njoku
By Randy Gurzi
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including the team expressing big plans for tight end David Njoku
For whatever reason, the previous Cleveland Browns regime had no plan for tight end David Njoku. After two solid seasons to start his career, the former first-round pick became an afterthought to head coach Freddie Kitchens and general manager John Dorsey.
With those two no longer in Berea, it appears things could be changing for Njoku. While speaking with reporters at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, general manager Andrew Berry touched on many topics, including the plans he and new head coach Kevin Stefanski have for the pass-catching tight end.
Njoku is a threat in the passing game and his lack of use in 2019 was inexcusable. This season, things should be different and the new staff is already admitting it needs to be.

Browns have ‘big plans’ for David Njoku and will tender Kareem Hunt, Andrew Berry & Kevin Stefanski say — Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com
"“We have some good players who are already on the roster,’’ Berry said during his podium interview. “Obviously, David Njoku. David didn’t quite have the year that he anticipated this past fall, but we still view David as a talented pass catcher and a guy that we expect to take a step forward in this upcoming year.”"
Freddie Kitchens did several things wrong in his lone season as the head coach but his inability to use David Njoku was inexcusable. Kevin Stefanski should be able to fix that problem.
Tony Grossi suspended indefinitely for calling Baker Mayfield derogatory slur — Drew Scofield, News 5 Cleveland
"“Tuesday afternoon, Grossi issued an apology on Twitter stating that there is ‘no excuse for using that language in any context. It was said without malice but also without thought.'”"
Tony Grossi crossed a line but anyone who was paying attention can’t be too shocked. He has been relentless in his disdain for Baker Mayfield and no one outside of Cleveland seemed to care. Now they suddenly do.
What does Browns GM Andrew Berry mean when he says he’s going to be aggressive? It’s about opportunity — Dan Labbe, Cleveland.com
"“Browns General Manager Andrew Berry said when he was introduced last month he was going to be aggressive. What, exactly, it meant was anyone’s guess.”"
It’s hard to predict exactly what Berry is going to be doing since this is his first season as a general manager. He’s worked with some aggressive front offices in the past, so he has had some exposure to the offseason — but we still are only guessing at what he will plan to do.
