Browns players reacted to the report.
QB Baker Mayfield seems to be pleased with it, tweeting NICHOLAS JAMAL CHUBB!!!!! – in all caps!
Defensive End Myles Garrett’s tweet is bringing the heat. Looks like he’s pumped for the season!
Chubb has developed into one of the NFL’s best backs in three years; he rushed for 1,067 yards last season despite missing four games with a knee injury.
