Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell discussed his expectations for 2017 on Wednesday, as well as his feelings regarding his contract situation. 

According to Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland, Crowell believes he is in line for a "monster year," and is also "a little" disappointed that the Browns have yet to sign him to a long-term deal.

The 24-year-old Crowell is set to enter the final year of his contract and will make $2.746 million in 2017, per Spotrac.

He is coming off his best NFL campaign after rushing for a career-high 952 yards last season to go along with seven rushing touchdowns and 40 receptions for 319 yards.

Crowell also ranked ninth in the NFL last season with 4.8 yards per rushing attempt.

Cleveland did little to address its backfield during the offseason, which means Crowell is set to enter 2017 as the starter with Duke Johnson once again serving as a change of pace.
