RB Nick Chubb (8.2.21)

RB Nick Chubb:

On how relieved and excited he is to sign his contract extension so he can now fully focus on playing football:

“I am relieved it is behind us now. Just coming out here ready to practice. I know all of that has been handled. It is taken care of. I am very happy where I am. I get to come out here and focus on getting better every day.”

On if everything he hoped for during his time rehabbing at Georgia has come true:

“Yeah, it has. I can say it has now, but back then, it was really blurry for me. I was not sure if I would how things would turn out, if I would ever be the same player or would I ever even play again. That is just something I hold onto in the back of my mind, knowing where I came from and knowing where I want to be. I can say through the help of friends, family and God I am here now in a blessed position.”

On what it means to him to be with the Browns for the foreseeable future:

“It means everything. I love it here in Cleveland. I love this team. I love the coaches. I love the position that I am in. I can’t ask for anything better than where I am. Cleveland is where I want to be. I am happy to be able to get that done so I can be here for even more years.”

On the next step for the Browns offense:

“The next step is just getting better, building off of last year with the momentum we have and continue to grow team chemistry and putting everything in place so we can go out there and become an even better team.”

On if he has talked to RB Kareem Hunt since signing his extension:

“Yeah, Kareem said, ‘Wagyu steaks on me.’ That is all he keeps saying. I know he is excited. I am excited to get out there and for me and him to get that going like we have been.”
