“[Njoku had] some good meetings with the new Browns’ organization including GM Andrew Berry and he has decided to give the team his full commitment right now and go from there,” Rosenhaus said.
Njoku posted the following on Twitter:
I’m all in Cleveland. Time to work.

Njoku requested a trade a month ago. However, the Browns told Njoku they would like to keep him.
Even so, Rosenhaus told the Browns they were intent on a trade and wanted 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.
