The last year has been a rollercoaster for Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku, and the ride doesn’t look like it will be stopping anytime soon, especially after some recent comments from the former first-round pick.

Njoku was asked about coming back to the Browns next season on The Jim Rome Show on Friday and was fairly cryptic with his response, leaving the door open for more drama this offseason.


“That’s a good question,” Njoku told Rome. “I’m not going to answer that right now. I have no comment towards that at this moment. I’m just going to enjoy my family, my friends, and my loves ones. I have couple of projects happening in the near future, so I’m just focused on the right now and I’ll let everything handle itself in the near future.”

Njoku — a former first-round pick of the Browns in 2017 — requested a trade last offseason when it became apparent he’d have to battle for reps, sitting behind both Austin Hooper and rookie Harrison Bryant on the depth chart. That was not ideal for Njoku, who had his fifth-year option picked up by the Browns prior to the season.
