But if he plays mediocre in his fifth season, why would the Browns want to sign him ?
I hope he plays so well that the Browns consider franchising him.

He is essentially a TE-1B. Hooper played 38 snaps. Njoku played 35. He certainly has a role in this scheme that needs great tight end play, no doubt.
He still failed to get set in a crucial drive, causing an illegal motion. That's just not acceptable from a 5th year player. Is he less raw? Yes... but how can a 5th year guy still be so raw?
So the financially wise move - letting him walk if somebody overspends... might be the smart move period. Let's watch move tight ends leading up to the draft.
