Amid swirling trade rumors, Browns tight end David Njoku wants Cleveland to know he still has positive vibes about the city and people.
"I want to make something very clear. I love the city of Cleveland with all my heart," Njoku tweeted Monday. "This game is filled with a lot of complications but don't think for a second that I don't love and appreciate Cleveland and all that it has done for me."
Njoku reportedly requested a trade earlier this month.
The former first-round tight end had his fifth-year option picked up, tying him to Cleveland for the next two years, unless he's granted a trade. There has been no indication from the Browns brass that they plan to acquiesce to a trade demand at this stage.
The Browns gave Austin Hooper a contract that tops the tight end position this offseason. While new coach Kevin Stefanski uses a plethora of dual-tight-end sets, that didn't stop Njoku from seeing if he could be traded to a more amicable situation.
If he doesn't get his wish, the 24-year-old has already started the process of mending any broken fences in Cleveland.
