David Njoku is heading into the final season of his rookie contract, and the tight end is looking to sign a long-term extension with the Cleveland Browns.
Njoku's agent, Malki Kawa, told Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that his client "would love to be in Cleveland long-term."
Kawa added: "Obviously there's a lot of things that go into that. At this point, we're not even there yet. We're going to see how the season goes, and we'll sit with [general manager] Andrew Berry, who I have a really good relationship with."
The relationship between Njoku and the Browns appears to be much better now than it was last offseason. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported in July 2020 that Njoku asked the Browns for a trade. He was coming off an injury-plagued 2019 campaign that saw him play in just four games.
