The Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns have reportedly agreed to a trade. It's the fourth trade in the NFL since the negotiating window opened on Monday.

While it doesn't carry the significance the previous trades have, it's a pivotal move for the Browns. New head coach Kevin Stefanski is expected to bring the Minnesota Vikings run heavy offense into Cleveland.

That means star running back Nick Chubb and backup running back Kareem Hunt will be busy in 2020. But so will the latest addition to the Browns roster.

According to Broncos insider Mike Klis, Denver traded star fullback Andy Janovich to the Browns for a seventh-round pick in 2021. Janovich was the odd man out in the new-look offense Denver plans to run in 2020.

As a result, he's headed to Cleveland.

The Broncos brought in former New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur as the team's offensive coordinator following the 2019 season.

During his run with the Giants, Shurmur seldom used the fullback position. Meanwhile, Kevin Stefanski ran a run-heavy offense in Minnesota during the 2019 season.

Adding Janovich to the team should opening up a few more running lanes for Chubb and Hunt in 2020.

Cleveland once again enters the season with a ton of hype.
