Over the past two seasons, Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb has emerged as one of the NFL’s top running backs.
The 25-year-old Chubb, who could have another extension in store when he’s 28, is entering his fourth NFL season after back-to-back campaigns in which he rushed for more than 1,000 yards and earned Pro Bowl bids.
I’m told the #Browns and RB Nick Chubb are making progress in closing talks on a contract extension, at this time, per source. The 2-time Pro Bowler who rushed for 1,000+y yards the last two seasons (1,494 his 2nd year) is entering the final year of his original contract in 2018.

• 1.75 rushing yards over expectation per attempt (1st, Next Gen Stats)
• 3.75 yards after contact per attempt (1st)
• 1.1 wins above replacement (2nd)
Best RB in the NFL and I’m ecstatic to see him receive a long-term deal. https://t.co/1z5u6WUffc
