However, the former first-round pick has apparently changed his mind again and believes that a change of scenery to a potentially less-crowded depth chart would be the best move for his career.
It remains to be seen if the Browns are any more inclined to trade Njoku than they were this summer.
Njoku, 24, 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 2020, Njoku has appeared in two games for the Browns and caught four passes for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.
We’ll have more on Njoku as the news is available.
