2. Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku
There was a point early on in 2020 where it seemed David Njoku could be on his way out. The Browns tight end was entering his fourth season in the league and Cleveland just added Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant.
Njoku ended up firing his representation and hired Drew Rosenhaus — which led to a trade request. Eventually, he rescinded this desire to be traded away and now, he also moved on from Rosenhaus. Not only has he gotten rid of the agent that loved to get players traded, but now he’s saying he would like to stick with the team long-term.
His teammates are even noticing a more determined player this season, with Baker Mayfield praising the mentality he has in this camp.
"“Any time you can limit distractions off the field, and that goes for anybody, you take care of business off the field and you’re able to come into this building and handle and do your job,” Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield said via Nick Shook of NFL Network. “David’s playing with the mentality that he’s trying to help our team out and that’s what we want with everybody.”"
Njoku’s focus has led to him making some incredible catches including a one-hander and several other contested grabs as well.
Cleveland might not play many of their starters this weekend but we don’t know what this means for No. 85. Whether or not he suits up, he’s been making plenty of plays that deserves acknowledgment.
