The Browns re-signed Nick Chubb to a three-year extension.

Nick Chubb made the fans of the Cleveland Browns very happy Sunday when he agreed to a nice deal that would see three years added onto his contract, with a total of $36.6 million over the length of the deal. It also promised $20 million guaranteed, no matter what. The deal doesn’t make Chubb the richest running back in the NFL, but it does give him plenty of cash and should satiate his appetite to get paid.

Cards on the table, this is a two-part, devil’s advocate type of analysis. We’ll be looking at the three best and three worst reasons for giving Chubb a new contract. To avoid any confusion, this is 100% of a good thing. That isn’t to say there aren’t possible negative consequences that could come from this new deal. There are always potential issues that can arise.

Pointing them out doesn’t mean we don’t support the move or don’t agree with the move. We’re simply saying that those reasons exist. Those will be covered in a different article that will be linked here and at the bottom of the page when it’s finished.

Right now we’re going to focus on the plus-side of things, the reasons that the contract Chubb got is not only a good thing for him but for the Browns as a whole.
