Nick Chubb of the Cleveland Browns has established himself as one of the best backs in the NFL over the last two seasons.

Now he’s emerged as one of the league’s top-paid running backs.

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, Nick Chubb and the Browns have reached an agreement in principle on a three-year extension worth $36.6 million. Rapoport noted that the transaction included a completely assured payment of $20 million.

According to Over the Cap, Chubb would be the sixth-highest-paid running back in those three years, averaging $12.2 million per season.

The 25-year-old Chubb is entering his fourth NFL season after back-to-back seasons in which he carried for more than 1,000 yards and was named to the Pro Bowl.

Heading into a 2021 season in which many expect the Browns will be successful, Chubb and Kareem Hunt provide Cleveland one of the best one-two punches in the league.

However, an upcoming extension for Chubb isn’t the one in the Browns’ backfield that has sparked the most interest, as quarterback Baker Mayfield enters the fourth season of his five-year rookie contract.

Mayfield was the top overall selection of the 2018 NFL Draft, while Chubb, whose 5.2 yards per carry since 2018 trail only Lamar Jackson, was selected 35th overall in the second round of the same draft.

Chubb rushed for 1,494 yards in 2019, finishing 46 yards behind Derrick Henry for the running title. With 1,067 yards last season, Chubb was seventh in the NFL. Chubb is a gritty runner who can run through opponents and gain difficult yards. He has also demonstrated his potential to break off massive gains.

Now, he’s broke loose for the biggest paycheck of his still-burgeoning career.
