A post shared by Myles “Flash” Garrett ?? (@flash_garrett) on reports that the club announced that league sources say they’ll likely try to sign both to long-term extensions.

According to, the Browns can also negotiate extensions for them beginning this offseason, and will likely explore them with both.

See, Myles “Flash” Garrett was the No. 1 overall pick in 2017 and Njoku was the 29th overall pick.

GM Andrew Berry has stressed the importance of keeping the team’s valued draft picks long-term. reports:

The top 10 players in the first round receive the same amount in Year 5 as the fourth-year transition tender at their position, which in the case of Garrett is $15.184 million — the average of the top 10 players at his spot.

For Njoku, he’ll receive the average of salaries of 2019 tight ends from third highest paid in the NFL to 25th, which is about $6 million.

There was never any question that the Browns would pick up Garrett’s option, but there was some doubt until recently about whether Njoku would be in the team’s long-range plans.

Berry said Saturday as he wrapped up the NFL draft.

Andrew Berry explains:

To David in particular, our perspective remains the same. I have been pretty consistent this offseason in terms of we still have a ton of belief in David. He is very talented.

Obviously, he was not on the field much last year, but he is a guy with outstanding physical tools, he has proven NFL production and we still think the future is very bright with him here. David has always been and continues to be in our plans, and we are going to continue to add competition all across the roster.

Let’s not forget this great moment:
