ATHENS - Former Georgia Bulldog running back and Cleveland Browns star Nick Chubb is at it again. 

This time the Cedartown native managed to squat 675 pounds - an amazing feat even for one of NFL’s top performers. Chubb signed a three-year contract extension with the Browns just before the 2021 season. That agreement is worth $36 million with $20 million of it guaranteed. With Chubb carrying the ball, the Cleveland Browns have +1000 odds to win the AFC this fall according to FanDuel. 

Chubb is one of the top running backs in Georgia’s long history of stellar backs. He teamed up with Sony Michel to form arguably the best one-two punch in UGA running back history. The duo’s decision to return to the Dawgs for the 2017 season was one of several key moments that led to the Dawgs winning the SEC and Rose Bowl Game that season before falling a play short to Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championhip Game in Atlanta.

The Browns then selected Chubb No. 35 overall in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Since then Chubb has accumulated 4,816 yards on 908 carries - earning a whopping 5.3 yards to carry in the rugged NFL. He’s added 92 receptions for 751 in that time. All told Chubb has started 51 games, scored 39 touchdowns and played 2,018 snaps for Cleveland. 

At Georgia Chubb was a workhorse. He was one of four permanent team captains on the 2017 team. He ended his career with 4,769 yards - behind only Herschel Walker in UGA and SEC all-time career leaders in rushing yards. His rushing totals rank 39th all time in college football history. 

Chubb was named SEC Freshman of the Year and All-SEC First Team his freshman season. His best game of his four-year run at Georgia came in the 2014 Belk Bowl where he slashed No. 20 Louisville for 266 rushing yards.
