Cleveland Browns announce Nick Chubb's new contract, says he's 'pillar' of organization
One of the bigger fan favorites in the NFL received a new contract in recent days, and the Cleveland Browns announced the deal with former Georgia star Nick Chubb, who was the beneficiary.
Chubb, a two-time Pro Bowler, signed a three-year extension that runs through the 2024 season. Chubb and the Browns reached agreement on a three-year, $36.6 million extension that includes $20 million guaranteed, per a source, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. Chubb will be a free agent again at age 28.
“From the day Nick Chubb first entered our facilities, it was clear to see that he would become a pillar of our organization,” Andrew Berry, Browns EVP of Football Operations and General Manager told the Browns’ team site. “Although Nick may be a man of few words whose strong-and-silent demeanor can be easy to overlook from the outside, his actions over the past three years have reverberated within the walls of our building. Nick’s on-field contributions stand for themselves. He is a dynamic runner who is on pace to be one of the most accomplished players to ever don an orange helmet at the position. But it’s his work ethic, intelligence, toughness and selflessness that makes us proud that he represents our city. Quite plainly, Nick embodies the soul of our team and we are thrilled that he will be a Cleveland Brown for years to come.”
Chubb rushed for 2,561 yards over the past two seasons.
