With the Cleveland Browns likely to move on from Jarvis Landry, here are three potential landing spots for the former pro-bowl receiver.
An ending of an era is likely coming for the Cleveland Browns in the 2022 offseason. One of the big trades made by John Dorsey was bringing Jarvis Landry to the fold. Landry was a productive player for a few years, but it’s looking like his tenure will come to an end.
Landry is under contract through the 2022 season, but his cap hit for next year is over $16 million. On top of that, it would only cost the Browns organization $1.5 million to just release the veteran.
This will make a lot of people sad. A scripted speech on Hard Knocks really had the fan base all in on Landry and his help to change the culture of Cleveland.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Landry is a great leader and was a big help to the Browns, but he is nowhere near worth $16 million in the 2022 season. Especially when there are so many other positions that need help.
In Landry’s first two seasons with the Browns, he totaled over 2,000 yards receiving with 10 touchdowns and was voted to the pro-bowl twice. He also played in all but two games.
In the last two seasons, Landry has just over 1,400 yards receiving and 5 touchdowns. He also missed 7 games total and played injured through several more games.
Landry doesn’t have elite speed and is only 5-foot-11, 196 pounds. He’s a great zone receiver, but no longer offers enough skillset to help the Browns take the next step. With his release seeming imminent, here are three potential landing spots for the eight-year pro.
