Nick Chubb
Browns and Chubb Agree on Reworked Contract
2 months ago

Nick Chubb will remain a Cleveland Brown in 2024 while he continues to recover from a devastating multi-ligament knee injury suffered in week 2 last season.

The Browns have chosen to keep Chubb in their backfield with a reworked contract that lowers his base salary, while giving him a chance to earn it back through performance based incentives.

 

This is welcome news for a player that people weren’t sure would return to the NFL after suffering his second significant injury to his left knee. Chubb clearly isn’t a regular human, as he recovered from a very similar injury while at the university of Georgia that people also thought would be career ending.

 

This news indicates that the Browns believe Chubb can return and be productive, while wanting to hedge their bet. Fantasy Managers should exercise caution as well, as his current pre-draft best ball ADP of 93.6 on Underdog feels way too rich, putting him ahead of players like Javonte Williams and Zamir White- runners who are the lead back on their team with less health concerns.
