“That sounds like an agent creation,” one source tells Fisher.
A separate source, who spoke with Fisher, denied Dallas having any interest in Njoku.
“Nope. No interest,” Fisher’s source said.
Fisher explains that the Cowboys weren’t aware that Rosenhaus is Njoku new agent and they’ve made a commitment to Blake Jarwin and brought in blocking tight end Blake Bell.
Cabot says the Browns would likely want a first-round pick in return for Njoku, assuming they would seriously consider moving him.
Njoku would like to be on a new team before the start of the regular season. However, the Browns reportedly have no plans to trade him at this time.
The Cowboys currently have Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz, Blake Bell, Cole Hikutini, Sean McKeon and Charlie Taumoepeau at tight end, so it would make sense for them to at least be monitoring the tight end market.
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.
