Tight end David Njoku described the Browns as an offensive juggernaut while he discussed their recent trade for three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
"This is huge for me, really," Njoku said Wednesday night on NFL Network's "Total Access." "Because we have so much talent on offense, defenses won't know how to handle us.
"We're just so versatile. You can have me out wide. You can have Odell, Jarvis [Landry, Rashard] Higgins, everybody, the running backs in the slot, out wide, everywhere. So no one's really sure of what we're doing until we get the job done."
Retired Browns left tackle Joe Thomas, who was co-hosting the show, asked Njoku how quarterback Baker Mayfield will be able to distribute the ball enough to keep all of the playmakers happy.
"It's competition," Njoku said. "Whoever's open gets the ball. We're a team, so we've got to see it as such. But at the at end of the day, we've got to compete."
Njoku revealed he has been training in Los Angeles with Mayfield, Higgins and receiver Damion Ratley. Njoku said more Browns teammates plan to gather for workouts after organized team activities in the spring.
The Browns reached agreements Wednesday on two-year contracts with linebacker Adarius Taylor and tight end Demetrius Harris, league sources confirmed.
Taylor received a two-year, $5 million contract, which includes $2.55 million guaranteed, one of the sources said. ESPN reported Harris received a two-year, $6 million deal, which includes $3.25 million guaranteed.
Two new Browns coaches — defensive coordinator Steve Wilks and run game coordinator/linebackers coach Al Holcomb — were with the Carolina Panthers when Taylor joined them in 2014 as an undrafted free agent from Florida Atlantic.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Taylor off the Panthers’ practice squad in 2015, and he spent the past four seasons with the Bucs.
Taylor, 28, has started 16 of the 60 regular-season games in which he has appeared, racking up 116 tackles, two sacks, six passes defensed, an interception, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Last season, he started 10 of his 15 games and finished with 60 tackles, a sack, five passes defensed, an interception and a forced fumble.
The Browns cut starting linebacker Jamie Collins last week. They still have incumbent starting linebackers Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey.
When Browns General Manager John Dorsey was in his first year on the job in the same capacity with the Chiefs, he signed Harris, 27, as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he played basketball.
In five seasons with the Chiefs, Harris appeared in 71 games with 33 starts and had 57 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns while establishing a reputation as a good blocker. He started three of the 15 games in which he appeared last season and caught 12 passes for 164 yards and a career-high three touchdowns.
The Browns were in the market for a tight end after cutting veteran Darren Fells on Monday.
• The Chiefs released five-time Pro Bowl strong safety Eric Berry, making him available for a potential reunion with Dorsey. After Dorsey traded strong safety Jabrill Peppers to the New York Giants as part of the Beckham blockbuster, the Browns were linked to former Seattle Seahawks six-time Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas, but he agreed to a four-year, $55 million contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
• Tyrod Taylor's expected departure from the Browns came to fruition with the veteran quarterback agreeing to a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Chargers. Veteran Drew Stanton will likely serve as the Browns’ No. 2 quarterback this year after filling the No. 3 role last season. The Browns will add another quarterback, too, probably a developmental player in the later rounds of the April 25-27 NFL Draft.
• After news of the Beckham trade broke Tuesday night, LeBron James posted a photograph of Beckham on Instagram and wrote, "OH MY!!!! S*#% just got REAL!!" On Wednesday, James commented on a video of Beckham's Browns jersey being made, tweeting, "Need mine ASAP!!!!"
