Schefter says the Browns told Njoku they would like to keep him, but Rosenhaus told them he’s intent on a trade and they want him to be moved before training camp.
“It is in David’s best interest to find a new team at this time,” Rosenhaus said.
Njoku, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2017. He’s entering the fourth year of his four-year, $9.5 contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.76 million for the 2020 season.
The Browns picked up Njoku’s fifth-year option back in April that will cost them roughly $6 million for the 2021 season.
In 2019, Njoku appeared in four games and caught five passes for 41 yards receiving and one touchdown.
