While Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku hasn’t had the standout statistics that many fans would like to see, his value to the team was recognized when they franchise tagged him before signing him to a big contract. In his five seasons in the league, the Miami product has had 148 receptions for 1,754 yards and 15 touchdowns.

He also missed all but four games in the 2019 season.

With Austin Hooper released, Njoku is clearly the team’s top tight end. The Browns are hoping that QB Deshaun Watson’s history of throwing touchdowns to the position will unlock Njoku’s potential.

Njoku will be joining the whose-who of NFL tight ends at Travis Kelce’s Tight End University:

As noted by Chiefs Wire, a big group is expected and expected to take part in a charity event as well:

So far 24 players have been announced as attending, along with Kelce, Kittle and Olsen. There are also a number of other tight ends who have been invited and participated in a fund-raising event for the Boys & Girls Clubs, who are all expected to be in attendance this week.

Cleveland’s third first-round pick in 2017, Njoku is still just 25 years old with room for continued growth. Learning the position from some of the best in the game can do nothing but help that growth.
