The running game remains the focal point of the Cleveland Browns offense.
Certainly, their success did not come overnight because they had to put in countless hours of practice and training.
If that’s the case, it looks like Chubb is ready for the 2022 season after doing this feat in the gym.

More For You Cleveland said, “Nick Chubb taking 495LBS for a ride like it’s nothing (via his IG) #Browns”
The tweet also shared a brief video of the running back having no problems doing squats with 495 pounds of weights on his shoulders.
If he can do that with steel, imagine what he can do against a lighter defensive lineman or linebacker.
Not The Season The Browns Wanted
The Browns missed the playoffs a year after making it and defeating the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers.
But while Cleveland did not enjoy postseason success, Chubb still had a solid season.
Despite playing just 14 regular-season games, the former Georgia standout finished eighth in rushing attempts with 228 and second in rushing yards with 1,259.
He also had eight touchdowns and averaged 5.5 yards per carry.
Chubb had five games of at least 100 yards, the best of which was his 161-yard performance against the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Browns are hoping for a return to the postseason in 2022, but that’s easier said than done.
In their division alone, the Baltimore Ravens will get their top players back while the Cincinnati Bengals have emerged as a legitimate threat.
The Steelers could also remain as contenders if they can address the void left by Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback.
Therefore, they’d need more of Chubb to help them win more games.NEXT: Baker Mayfield Trying To Break A Tough NFL Trend For QBs
