The Cleveland Browns and tight end David Njoku have agreed to a four-year, $56.8 million contract extension.
The Browns placed the franchise tag on Njoku earlier in March instead of letting him hit the open market, but a long-term deal was part of the plan.
The 25-year-old has showed flashes of a high ceiling across his first five seasons in Cleveland, but he’s yet to really have a breakout season.
However, it looks like the team sees him as a key piece in the offense for the foreseeable future.
Njoku had just 36 receptions for 475 yards and four touchdowns across 16 games played last season.
For upcoming fantasy purposes, a flyer on Njoku may not be a bad option for managers because of his potential.
