If there was ever a time for David Njoku to make his first Pro Bowl, it is the 2022 season. Even though he hasn’t had great statistical years, Andrew Berry handed Njoku a 4-year contract worth $56.75 million.

This contract baffled many fans and media alike. The front office obviously thinks he has the potential to be a perennial Pro Bowler, now it is time for him to prove it.

In 2020 and 2021 when the offense transitioned under Kevin Stefanski, Njoku had to adjust and act as the number two tight end behind now Tennessee Titan Austin Hooper. There were some growing pains during that time, but Njoku still made several catches that would make your jaw drop.

With Hooper gone, The Chief is first on the depth chart for the first time since 2019.

There is no doubt that Njoku is a freak athlete with a massive amount of talent. Since coming into the league in 2017, at the young age of 20, he has shown countless flashes of greatness but has yet to put together a full season. Everyone knew he was a raw talent when drafted.

He has done a great job improving his catching and blocking abilities in the last few seasons as well. The team believes with an elite quarterback like Deshaun Watson that Njoku can fully break out this season. Making his first Pro Bowl is right there for the taking for the 5th year tight end.
