David Njoku’s tweet could mean he’s leaving the Cleveland Browns soon
Many Cleveland Browns fans are pretty upset with tight end David Njoku, especially after he requested a trade. Njoku, like Duke Johnson, who also requested a trade out of Cleveland, were fan favorites at one point of their time in Cleveland.
After the Browns brought in Austin Hooper to start over Njoku, and 4th round pick Harrison Bryant to back them both up, Njoku decided to request a trade.
Njoku has been pretty vocal on twitter about his trade request. While many fans may think it’s about competition, Njoku claims that he hasn’t requested a trade because of that.
There hasn’t been much movement on a possible trade for David Njoku yet. Officially, no news has come out of teams putting together serious offers for Njoku.
The Browns value him greatly, and the market for him is just not at what they are willing to part with Njoku for. However, a recent tweet that Njoku has put out seems like a goodbye letter to the city of Cleveland.
Could this be Njoku’s final goodbye to the city of Cleveland? This tweet seems like something a player would put out after they are traded. This is all speculation, but the timing feels pretty weird, especially considering that there hasn’t been any talk about a deal being proposed.
After a pretty weak tight end class in this past draft, there is some need for a good tight end around the NFL. Carolina, Washington, the Chargers, New England, Buffalo, and the Cardinals are all teams that come to mind that could be in need of a tight end.
It shouldn’t be hard for the Cleveland Browns to find a team to want Njoku, but it’s the compensation that seems to be the issue. This brings up a certain point that I haven’t been able to understand. If the Browns value him so highly, why would he be requesting a trade?
If Njoku loves the city of Cleveland, isn’t mad about competition, and the Browns view him as an important piece of the puzzle, why does he want out? Hopefully more comes out about this situation in the next coming days. If the 49ers and Raheem Mostert can have a meeting to patch things up, why can’t the Cleveland Browns and David Njoku do the same?
Until more information comes out, expect Njoku to be on the Browns week one roster.
