Cardinals 'most intriguing fit' fit for David Njoku

After it was reported that the Cleveland Browns' David Njoku had requested a trade Friday, it didn't take long for some writers to speculate about some potential trade partners for the tight end.

And it didn't take long for the Arizona Cardinals to be included in some of that speculation, Jeremy Cluff of the Arizona Republic reports.

Arizona currently has Maxx Williams and Dan Arnold as its most experienced tight ends and adding Njoku to the lineup would potentially make Arizona's passing game even more explosive after the team traded for DeAndre Hopkins.

Njoku, who turns 24 next Friday, was the No. 29 overall pick out of Miami in the 2017 NFL draft.

He had 56 catches for 639 yards and four touchdowns in 2018, but he played in just four games last season after being sidelined by a wrist injury. He was a healthy scratch, however, in Weeks 15 and 16.

CBS Sports' Jared Dubin listed eight potential trade destinations for Njoku and he had the Cardinals ranked No. 1, calling Arizona "the most intriguing fit."

He wrote: "This is my pick for the most intriguing fit. The Cardinals love spreading the field with as many perimeter threats as possible, opening up wider lanes to both throw and run. They had some difficulty doing that early last season but found more success later on. Adding DeAndre Hopkins should open things up even more in 2020, and adding Njoku would take that up another level. Giving Kyler Murray another explosive target would help make sure he takes the step forward that many are predicting for him this coming season."

Dubin also listed the Cincinnati Bengals, Washington Redskins, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans as potential options for Njoku.
