Browns tight end David Njoku joined the Jim Rome Show during the Super Bowl week to discuss the Browns successful season, his status with the team and teammates and more. Njoku made some intriguing comments to Rome, who was one of the Browns’ biggest cheerleaders amongst the national media last season.

Njoku talked about his personally trying year, noting he “learned a lot about myself through adversity, physical and mental.”

As for the team aspect, Njoku echoed what other Browns have said,

“We’re proud in that standpoint but obviously we’re not really happy that we just got that far. We wanted to go as far as possible. It is what it is … get back to work.”

Njoku also volunteered that he and teammate Austin Hooper, who took over his role as the primary tight end, have become very close friends.

“Austin is one of my best friends right now. Just this past month that we’ve hung out, that guy and I, we’ve been through a lot, training together a lot,” Njoku said. He also spoke well of 2020 rookie TE Harrison Bryant.

It’s an interesting peek behind Njoku’s curtain and one that reveals a player who sure sounds like he thinks he’ll be back in Cleveland.
