LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 20: Jarvis Landry /

The Browns pulled a blockbuster deal with the Miami Dolphins for wide receiver Jarvis Landry. With two draft picks heading down to South Beach and a new receiver wearing orange and brown in 2018, what can we make of all this?

Fans finally got a taste of the action from this new Cleveland Browns front office. At around 4:30 on Friday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news that the Browns would be trading for wide receiver Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins.

Soon after, Ian Rapoport followed up with the same story. Immediately, the Dawg Pound went into a frenzy on Twitter and across social media. It can only be assumed that John Dorsey and company were dancing with fans in the streets of Cleveland after this deal went through.

But, let’s slow down for a second. What do we know about Landry, judging from his time with the Dolphins? Additionally, what are the repercussions of this deal on the Browns’ future? Let’s take a look.

More from Dawg Pound Daily

Landry was a great slot receiver during his time in Miami. While he was never the big splash play guy on the Dolphins’ offense, he was a reliable target for Ryan Tannehill, and yes, Jay Cutler.

Throughout his four-year career, Landry amassed a rather impressive 400 receptions, totalling just over 4,000 yards for his career. He is consistent, but wait, maybe there’s something fans are overlooking here.

Landry is a known commodity as a receiver, but he is also a player who is known to have a bad attitude. If he can manage to leave his ego at the door in Berea, though, fans should absolutely welcome him with open arms.

Landry might not be a splashy, big-play receiver, but he is consistent and gets solid yardage with his catches. The Browns are already working on a new long-term contract for Landry, as he is on the franchise tag for this season.

As for the future, Adam Schefter has reported that the picks going to Miami are for rounds three through seven. So, the Browns are likely not missing on anything earth-shattering by losing these picks.

At the very least, it looks like Landry is excited to be here.

Welcome to Cleveland, Jarvis Landry.
