Cleveland Browns WR’s Jarvis Landry, OBJ troll Marcus Peters extension
Cleveland Browns wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. were excited about Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters signing a multi-year extension.
Cleveland Browns wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry are known to not be afraid to ruffle some feathers. As they prepare for their final game of the season, they decided to go after Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters.
On Saturday, Peters agreed to a three-year, $42 million extension with the Ravens. Baltimore acquired Peters in a midseason trade knowing they were going to need sign Peters to an extension if they wanted him to be their No. 1 cornerback for the long-term future.
Despite the Ravens feeling strongly enough to sign Peters to a lucrative extension, the Browns receivers do not seem to be too concerned about going up against Peters two times a year for the next three seasons.

Beckham and Peters had some issues during the Browns and Ravens Week 16 matchup. The two were matched-up often during the contest and Peters had some trouble covering Beckham. In the first quarter, Peters held Beckham after being beat by the route on a fourth down, giving the Browns a first down.
Beckham also caught a touchdown with Peters covering him late in the game. Beckham celebrated the touchdown with a dance, which Peters took offense to. Later in the game, Peters replicated the dance once the Ravens had solidified the victory.
Despite Landry and Beckham apparently being excited to face Peters for several years, they did not light the world on fire against Peters and the Ravens secondary. The two made a combined 11 receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets.
Beckham, Landry, and Peters are known to be fiery individuals on the field and are not afraid to trash talk. It is pretty clear that the trio likely shared some words with each other on the field.
After losing to Peters and the Ravens just six days ago, taking the Browns out of playoff contention while the Ravens clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the timing of these comments from the Browns receivers did not come at a good time. They may have problems with Peters, but they should not act like they smoked Peters and the Ravens secondary.
It may be their way of having some fun, but there is no reason for the Browns to put another target on their back after what has transpired this season. It would probably be best if the Browns players tried to have a quiet offseason and prove the naysayers wrong in 2020.
