On the field, Landry is an exceptional player. He runs sharp routes that allows him to be an option for the quarterback on almost every play. His ability to create space is the reason why he has caught 400 passes in his first four seasons, shattering the NFL record for most receptions in the first four seasons of a player’s career.
The biggest criticism of his game has been despite all of his receptions, he does not get a lot of yardage off of those catches. But as Landry stated in an interview with the MMQB, that could have been caused by Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase forcing him to run shallow routes.
But in Cleveland, offensive coordinator Todd Haley is expected to give Landry a full route-tree to run. With his sharp route-running being used downfield, Landry will be able to pair his high reception numbers with increased yardage in Cleveland.
If Landry can increase his yardage totals, he could become known as one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. With the potential of having career years in Cleveland, he could reach superstar status in Cleveland fans’ minds.
Tyrod Taylor has been confident throwing to Landry and may feel very comfortable throwing to the receiver. With good chemistry, Landry may be Taylor’s go-to receiver in critical situations throughout the season.
With as much talent that Landry has, he will easily become a fan favorite just for his abilities on the field. But Landry is a fun guy to follow because he is not afraid to say what he thinks. Including most recently, saying how he feels about his presence in Cleveland.
The Browns should start winning games on a regular basis in the next few seasons. Landry will be a vital part of a Browns resurgence with what he can do on offense. He already seems to be a fan favorite among Browns fans, but he has the potential of becoming the next Cleveland sports hero.
