It’s unclear why Njoku has modified his thoughts apart from the actual fact it seems Cleveland by no means had any curiosity of giving in and purchasing him. Maybe a brand new teaching workers and entrance workplace soothed his considerations. His worth isn’t at a excessive level, both. He appeared in simply 4 video games final season, catching solely 5 passes for 41 yards and a landing. Cleveland signed Austin Hooper in free company however reportedly plan to make use of a number of tight finish units, getting each gamers on the sector to enrich their sturdy run sport led by Nick Chubb.
