Jarvis Landry Potential Landing Spot No. 3
While Matt Ryan isn’t getting any younger (turns 37 in May) or any cheaper, he is still a veteran quarterback who can still sling the pigskin around the yard.
In 2021, Ryan threw for 3,968 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions for a Falcons team that finished a lowly 7-10. Landry could be a nice veteran receiver to add to this team and potentially help change the culture down in the A.
Another reason that the Falcons could be a good landing spot is the fact that they may be without star wide receiver Calvin Ridley, should the two parties find a quality trade partner. If I’m Andrew Berry, I’m making the call to gauge the asking price for Ridley. He would be a huge upgrade in the Browns wide receiver room.
Ridley played in just five games in 2021, as he battled injuries and mental health issues. He felt it was best for him to step away from the game of football to get his mental health in order, which is highly commendable. In those five games, he caught 31 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns.
In Ridley’s absence, rookie tight end Kyle Pitts led the team in receptions (68) and yards (1,026), but only caught one touchdown pass. The leading wide receiver was Russell Gage, who caught 66 balls for 770 yards and four touchdowns. Gage could also depart from Atlanta as he is a free agent and he is another option for the Browns to explore.
