Predicting the Cleveland Browns tight end depth chart in 2020
When the Cleveland Browns hired former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their new head coach, fans immediately got excited — and it was understandable why. Stefanski ran a run-heavy offense with Minnesota which fits the Browns extremely well.
Not only do they have the perfect running backs for what Stefanski does in Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, but they also have some talented tight ends who would excel in his two tight end sets that were often employed with the Vikings.
Making fans even more excited was the addition of Austin Hooper, who was signed in the offseason. Putting him next to David Njoku as the two starters is ideal — but Njoku requesting a trade could throw a wrench in those plans.
After the Browns picked up Hooper, Njoku was saying all the right things about how he welcomed the competition and that the two would make one another better. He also had the fifth-year of his contract picked up by the Browns, meaning they wanted him around as well.
Then things changed when Njoku fired his representation and picked up Drew Rosenhaus, the infamous agent that just helped Duke Johnson force his way out of Cleveland last year. Rosenhaus is now requesting a trade for Njoku but the team has yet to oblige them
Until a trade happens, we move forward with Njoku as a part of this team which is evident in this prediction of the Cleveland Browns 2020 tight end depth chart.
