Nick Chubb Squatting 725 Pounds Should Make You Rethink How The NFL Values Running Backs

Jul 20, 2023

Holy shit. Nick Chubb is not real.

Nick is one of the best running backs in the NFL and basically has put the Cleveland Browns on his back for the past 4 years. He is a 99 in Madden (that’s a big deal for players) and is squatting 3/4 of a ton.

In the NFL right now there is a debate raging on about the value of a running back. NFL owners everywhere are refusing to pay marquee players because they believe the price tag is too expensive.

NFL running backs are speaking out and believe they need to be valued higher. I understand the owner’s perspective from a business standpoint, the running back position is a short window to be great and they easily get beat up the most. They are the only position on the football field who get hit almost every play. Owners think they can sign an RB on a rookie deal and draft another one when it comes to payday. It’s a tough business.

Here is an idea, your worth is tied to how much you can bench/squat. Win/win.

Nick Chubb would easily be the highest paid player in the NFL. The man is a beast. Watching videos like this makes me very excited that football season kicks off in just over a month.
