Cleveland Browns fans can thank Jarvis Landry for OBJ
Take a step back with me here and answer me this question: Who started this culture change and excitement for the Cleveland Browns? Jarvis Landry.
While he gets most of the credit for the newfound hope with the Cleveland Browns, It wasn’t Baker Mayfield who started the ball rolling. Now, before you all grab your pitchforks, hear me out.
Yes, Baker Mayfield has been a lightning rod for this team and this city, but he was not the player to start the turn around for the Browns. Jarvis Landry, with his contagious attitude, started this culture change.
Pumping up his teammates, being a go-to target for Baker Mayfield and a legitimate threat for this offense. He’s a lead by example kind of guy, and I don’t think anybody can argue that.

Jarvis Landry was the first big name to come to Cleveland and when he came here he put his pride for the orange and brown everywhere.
Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter lit up with Jarvis loving Cleveland and what this city and team bring to the table. Then it started.
Right then and there Jarvis Landry started talking to Odell Beckham Jr. about coming to Cleveland and teaming up and being the leaders of a dominant offense.
Landry brought Baker around OBJ in the offseason. The last two years during the offseason Baker, Jarvis, and Odell have trained together. That’s two years off communicating, practicing together, getting to know one another. Jarvis Landry made this happen.
We all love John Dorsey right now, and rightfully so. However, don’t forget that the Giants wanted OBJ gone in order to initiate a culture change of their own. Dorsey made the trade, but Landry made the initial connection between Baker and OBJ.
Jarvis should be given more credit than he has received for this huge move for the Browns. This transition for OBJ will be much easier because of his friend Landry, his former coach Adam Henry, and his offseason connection with Baker Mayfield.
Hold on tight Browns fans, this offense will be fun to watch.
