Second Award Of The Day For Chubb
Chubb was named a second-team All-Pro for the 2022 season.
That is new territory for Chubb who surprisingly has never been named an All-Pro in his five NFL seasons.
#Browns G Joel Bitonio voted first team All-Pro for second straight year. RB Nick Chubb and DE Myles Garrett are second team.

Chubb’s Prolific Season Was Overshadowed By Disappointment
The 2022 Browns team was a disappointment.
It is that simple.
Chubb’s career-first efforts of rushing for over 1,500 yards (and joining Jim Brown as the only Brown to do so) were certainly eclipsed by a team that was very inconsistent.
Nick Chubb says it’s “bittersweet” to join Jim Brown as the only two RBs to rush for 1,500 yards and not making the playoffs. #Browns @fox8news pic.twitter.com/6LjiQHcBTf

He is 27 years old so the time is now for the Browns to put together the players and coaches to allow Chubb and the Browns to both succeed.

In reality, the Browns need 53 Nick Chubbs, but unfortunately, that is not possible.
Concerned Browns Fan says
Hopefully the Browns aren’t wasting Nick Chubb’s best years. It might be highly unlikely, that the team signs him to another deal…
Jim K says
HE’D BE THE BEST IN TODAYS GAME: If he hit the hole at full speed more often instead of half speed looking for daylight which to often results in him being stuffed at the line of scrimmage.
