Jarvis Landry isn’t flashy, but the Cleveland Browns wideout keeps racking up the stats.

It’s safe to say this season was not one of the better ones for Jarvis Landry. The Cleveland Browns wide receiver was slow to start the year off after having hip surgery in the offseason — not to mention he was learning a new system as he was on his fourth head coach in three seasons with the Browns.

Then when he started to turn things around, he suffered another injury as he hurt his ribs in a Week 5 performance that saw him gain 88 yards on four receptions against the Indianapolis Colts. Again, Landry was slowed down but he kept on suiting up and playing.

Because of his willingness to push through the pain, Landry again put his name in the record books as CBS Sports HQ says he’s the only player in the history of the NFL to have 70-plus receptions in his first seven seasons.

Landry finished with 72 receptions for 840 yards and three touchdowns and while they were his worst numbers since joining the Browns, he also had more reasons for his play to be slowed. Not only did he have to deal with the aforementioned injuries, but he also missed the first game of his NFL career in Week 16.

That was the week the Browns lost to the New York Jets when their entire receiving corps was at home watching since they were in close contact with a staff member who had COVOD-19. For Landry, it had to be especially hard since he not only prides himself in playing every game but even made a name for himself imploring others to do the same during his first season with the Browns.

With the offseason among us, there have been questions brought up about Landry and his price tag, but no matter how you feel about his pay, there’s no one who can argue that the man is not a warrior.
