CLEVELAND (AP) The Browns weren't going to let Nick Chubb run away.

Cleveland and the star running back agreed Saturday night to a three-year, $36.6 million contract extension, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press on Saturday night.

Chubb has developed into one of the NFL's best backs in three years. The deal guarantees him $20 million, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the sides are still finalizing the package.

All-Pro G Scherff in virus protocol

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) All-Pro guard Brandon Scherff and fellow offensive lineman David Sharpe are in virus protocol, making them the fifth and sixth Washington Football players on the NFL's COVID-19 reserve list.

Washington is next to last in the NFL in percentage of players to receive at least one dose of a vaccine and, as of Saturday evening, only Arizona with nine had more in league protocol. His team's lagging vaccination rate and the potential pitfalls of an outbreak have been a point of consternation for coach Ron Rivera, who is immune deficient after undergoing treatment last year for a form of skin cancer.

QB Winston: 'No check-down mentality'

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Even as Jameis Winston insists he's going to make better decisions with the football, the potential successor to Drew Brees in New Orleans doesn't want to give the impression he's going to shy away from aggressive, downfield throws.

There's "no check-down mentality," Winston asserted after training camp practice at Saints headquarters on Saturday. "It's: Take what they give you. That's one thing our coaches preach. ... We want to be able to move through those progressions quickly and be able to get the ball completed."


Jets' Maye disappointed about contract

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Marcus Maye was hoping for a long-term contract extension in the offseason. He instead got a whole lot of uncertainty.

The New York Jets safety received the franchise tag in March, but he and the team failed to reach an agreement on a deal before the deadline on July 15. That means Maye will play on the tag amount of $10.6 million this season - and then everything is up in the air beyond that.
