Edwards had a great year, with 80 receptions, 1.289 yards, and 16 touchdowns. This was by far his best season as a Brown, and in his NFL career.
Jurevicius had 50 receptions for 614 yards and three touchdowns. This was the last season of the Cleveland native’s career, ending it off right by playing for his hometown team.
Cribbs wasn’t known for his abilities as a receiver, but more as a return man. This season, he only had three receptions for 37 yards. Carter added eight catches for 117 yards and a touchdown this year also.
The 2018 wide receiver core features a plethora of talent. Big names like Landry and Josh Gordon headline the group, followed by Antonio Callaway, Jeff Janis, and Rashard Higgins. Ricardo Louis is with the team, but on IR.
Honestly, this isn’t even a competition. Edwards had a better season receiving yards and touchdown wise than any of the receivers on the 2018 squad, but fizzled out after that. Landry has been consistently good over the course of his career.
Landry has the most receptions through a player’s first four seasons in NFL history with 400. In Miami, he was the workhorse to get Kenny Stills and company open on deep routes. Expect him to have the same role with the Browns for Gordon.
Callaway is also a special talent as a rookie, and the Browns are going to give him a large role following the Corey Coleman trade. The others are good role players, who can make plays if needed. See Jeff Janis’ catch from arguably Aaron Rodgers’ best individual play throughout his career.
