The Cleveland Browns look to reload after a solid 2023 NFL season. The Browns are looking to make changes to Nick Chubb's contract to keep him; however, Deshaun Watson is a major source of buzz. Fans are using Watson as fuel for their disdain of the team's potential plans with Chubb.

Browns fans are not happy with Cleveland's contract plans for Nick Chubb

Chubb was one of the best running backs in the NFL before he suffered a devastating knee injury in 2023, but his time in Cleveland could run short.

The 28-year-old is entering the final year of his contract in 2024 amid recovery from a torn MCL and damaged ACL. He is expected to return at some point during the season. However, the Browns could cut him and save $12 million if they do not believe he will be ready to contribute.

Despite the extreme option, Cleveland wants to keep Chubb and is working to restructure his contract to keep the team's salary cap in check. Moreover, Deshaun Watson and his lucrative contract are coming under fire from fans amid the buzz.

Watson signed a five-year, $230 million extension with the franchise during the 2022 offseason after being acquired in a trade from the Houston Texans. Thus, Cleveland fans are blaming Watson for the team's proposed Nick Chubb moves. Here are some notable reactions:
