  Changing pro football’s color barrier: Paul Brown hires Bill Willis and Marion Motley From 1934 to 1945, there weren’t any black players in pro footballIn team photos of NFL clubs in 1933, such as the maiden season of the Pittsburgh Pirates (later renamed the Steelers), there are black players sprinkled about from the various clubs. But not in 1934. Or the year after that. And subsequent years all the way up to 1945.

One of the bigger offseason questions hanging over the Cleveland Browns has been answered with a positive affirmation. Per Mike Jones of USA TODAY, the Browns and star running back Nick Chubb have reached an agreement on a 4-year contract extension . Exact details of the deal are not yet confirmed, but the deal is expected to make Chubb among the highest-paid running backs in the NFL. It will keep him in Cleveland through the 2025 season. Chubb , 25, ran for 1,067 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games in 2020, his third NFL season.

Browns running back Nick Chubb is back at practice, and barring any setbacks during the week, he is set to return to action against the Texans on Sunday, six weeks after suffering a sprained MCL in the first half of the win in Dallas.

Nick Chubb said last month that Cleveland was where he wanted to stay, and indeed he will for the foreseeable future.

The Browns have reached agreement on an extension with the running back, Mike Jones of USA Today reports.

It is a three-year extension worth $36.6 million with $20 million fully guaranteed, a source tells PFT.

Chubb was entering the final year of his rookie deal due to make $3.384 million in base salary in 2021.

He finished seventh in the league last season with 1,067 yards rushing and 12 rushing touchdowns despite playing only 12 games. He ranked second among qualified running backs in averaging 5.6 yards per carry in 2020.

Chubb has 3,557 rushing yards and 28 rushing touchdowns along with 72 receptions for 577 yards and two receiving touchdowns in 44 career games since the Browns made him a second-round choice in 2018.

Michael Ovitz’s Insurer Asks Court to Toss Suit Over Anita Busch Settlement Payment .
Michael Ovitz’s insurance company says it’s not obligated to pay a larger share of his nearly $13 million settlement with journalist Anita Busch — in a suit that alleged he hired infamous fixer Anthony Pellicano to intimidate her following a series of critical articles — because her claims against him didn’t arise from an accident. Ovitz has admitted he hired Pellicano to investigate Busch but denies directing the harassment, and agreed to a settlement in 2018 just days before trial was set to begin.
