Will the Cleveland Browns allow David Njoku the chance to start elsewhere in 2021?
Being an athlete in the age of social media is different. Everything these players do online is scrutinized and that’s the case again for David Njoku, the Cleveland Browns tight end who was relegated to reserve duty when Austin Hooper was signed last season.
After Hooper was added — and Harrison Bryant from Florida Atlantic was drafted — Njoku requested a trade from the Browns. He eventually rescinded that demand after meeting with the head coach and GM but was still used sparingly which has prompted more speculation about his future.
It’s now to the point where a simple picture of him with the caption “The truth will be revealed” has some asking what this means about his future. The truth is, this probably means nothing about his status with the Browns, and there’s nothing to suggest there’s any tension between him and the team that drafted him in 2017.
There are, however, more than enough reasons to believe he could be getting a fresh start sooner rather than later.

“Njoku, a former first-round pick of the Browns, delivered a cryptic Instagram post on Saturday, possibly hinting at his situation in Cleveland.”
De Groote also references an interview Njoku had recently with Jim Rome where he didn’t want to speak on his future. What’s important to note is that Njoku has been incredibly respectful and even though he understandably wants to go somewhere he can play more snaps, he has yet to say a bad word about his team in Cleveland. Whatever happens, he’s a class act.
“His three-touchdown game against the Cowboys was the perfect example of how Beckham was poised to light it up in 2020.”
Mary Kay goes over the season that OBJ had in 2020, which was a lost year. He again vows to be even better going forward, but the Browns still have a huge decision to make.

The Browns need a player who can get deep and DeSean Jackson needs a new home. Perhaps these two can help one another out.
