The Browns have given Nick Chubb a nice pay bump.

The Cleveland Browns have agreed on a new deal for Nick Chubb that will see his contract be extended an additional three years to 2025, and his pay upped to $12.2 million a year across the length of the extension; accounting for a grand total of $36.6 million. The deal begins in 2022 and will not affect the cap in 2021.

We support the new contract, let’s be very clear. We think Chubb earned it. We think Chubb deserves it. We don’t have any issues with the contract in any way. This is a “Devil’s advocate” piece. We’re merely looking at the concerns that any deal of this size brings with it and pointing out how it’s going impact the team in a negative way.

This doesn’t mean that we think Chubb is overpaid or that the Browns should’ve let him walk. We don’t think that, we’re just pointing out that with every good, there is bad. You win the lottery? Congratulations, but now you owe a huge chunk in taxes and you have 392 new relatives who are hitting you up for money.

There is always good in the bad and bad in the good. It’s just the way the world works. So we decided to peek in and see what bad things could come from this deal.

We also posted three reasons why this deal is great for the Browns and Chubb, a link can be found here or at the end of the article.
