The Browns tight end David Njoku still wants to be traded and hopes to find a new home before the November 3 trade deadline, a source tells Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. Njoku originally asked to be traded back in July, though he walked back his request later in the summer.
Cleveland hasn’t been willing to deal him up to this point, though the franchise could change its mind if a team blows them away with an offer they can’t refuse, Cabot writes. The Browns have some issues in the secondary and with their linebacking core, so swapping Njoku for a defensive starter could be a prudent move.
“We have three guys that are really good and belong on the field in a variety of roles,” tight end coach Drew Petzing said last week. “May the best man play and continue to play. I think we are going to use all three of them a lot and really rely on them to have success on offense as we have throughout the season.”
