Nick Chubb said last month that Cleveland was where he wanted to stay, and indeed he will for the foreseeable future.

The Browns have reached agreement on an extension with the running back, Mike Jones of USA Today reports.

It is a three-year extension worth $36.6 million with $20 million fully guaranteed, a source tells PFT.

Chubb was entering the final year of his rookie deal due to make $3.384 million in base salary in 2021.

He finished seventh in the league last season with 1,067 yards rushing and 12 rushing touchdowns despite playing only 12 games. He ranked second among qualified running backs in averaging 5.6 yards per carry in 2020.

Chubb has 3,557 rushing yards and 28 rushing touchdowns along with 72 receptions for 577 yards and two receiving touchdowns in 44 career games since the Browns made him a second-round choice in 2018.

  1. He would have had 14 touchdowns if he did fall to the ground like a fish out of the water at the goal line twice !!! . He cost me in fantasy football with that garbage

  2. Seems like a good compromise on the contract. Chubb is a stud but RBs don’t get paid the biggest bucks these days given the way the game has evolved towards passing, so each side had to give a bit.

  3. Great move by the Browns. This guy is a flat out beast. And a great character player. Happy for Nick Chubb. My favorite player on the Browns

  4. Chubb is such a special player and even better person. Congratulations to the Browns and Chubb.

  5. Over 4000 total yards and 30 total TDs in not even 3 full seasons is really impressive. I’m glad this guy got a nice payday

  6. Seems reasonable, good to see it get done before they hit the franchise tag him or not debate when his rookie deal would have been over after this season.

    Both times for the benefit of his team…..unselfish and intelligent player.

  8. Nick Chubb is a stud but he isn’t a bell cow back. He needs spelled several times a game due to his cardio issues and gets less effective in the 3rd and 4th quarter. He also isn’t much of a receiver. Najee Harris will be the best RB in the AFC North this season

  9. Uh oh, the rest of the league is in troooouble. The Browns are locking up their core players and they are all studs. Dare I say it, okay I dare…….SUPERBOWL BOUND BROWNS BABY!!!!

  10. Nick Chubb…this contract extension is extremely well deserved by a great person, great running back, just an all around great NFL football player.
    Congratulations…

    You might want to check Chubb’s second half stat lines.
    When you have a backup like Hunt, it makes perfect sense to keep him fresh. There’s no need to run him into the ground.

  12. Chubby is a great back. Fun to watch. Good to see Cleveland building a very good team.

    Except for the fact that he AVERAGED 10 yards per carry in the 4th quarter last year. Other than that, completely ineffective.

    Dude only averages 10 yards per attempt in the 4th quarter. Isn’t a bell cow because he doesn’t need to be with hunt there. He is a beast and will stay strong for years because he can split carries with an accomplished backup!

  15. As a Giants fan this should bode well when Saquon looks for his new contract next year. Unless Saquon is a 1st team all pro in 2021 he shouldnt get any more than Chubb just got.

  16. He averaged 10 yards per carry in the 4th quarter last year – no better way to ice a game – but yeah, he’s being “overpaid” lol. He is a beast and could have demanded a lot more money. Also well done by the Cleveland front office tying him until age 29, where we know RBs start to decline. Just YouTube Nick Chubb highlights if you haven’t watched him for the last three years – speed, power, vision – all amazing.

  17. Love this. This guy is going to be a Cleveland legend, loved forever by Browns fans!

    Do you see what’s happening here, people?!

    We are CLEVELAND and WE ARE FOR REAL!

  18. I love Chubb’s game and I’m sure glad they signed him. I’m also glad it was only for 3 years…I was very nervous it might be a 5 year deal. As much as I like Chubb, 5 year deals for RBs scare me.
    It could work in Chubb’s favor: if he continues to be a beast and stays healthy, he might get another big contract in 3 years.

  19. I with him and Hunt in the fold, the Dawgs will have the best 1-2 punch in football for years to come.
