In 2020, the Cleveland Browns boasted one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL. With Pro Bowler Nick Chubb leading that way and Kareem Hunt providing valuable touches in relief, Kevin Stefanski’s team dominated opposing defensive fronts.
But with Chubb’s rookie contract coming to an end after the upcoming 2021 season, the Browns backfield is in danger of being split up. The 2018 second-rounder signed a four-year deal once he arrived in Cleveland and will see that contract expire if he can’t re-up with the organization.
Chubb played in 12 games last year, after suffering an MCL injury early on in the campaign. In a slightly shortened season, he still finished seventh in the league in rushing yards (1,067), racked up 12 rushing touchdowns and averaged 5.6 yards per carry.
