Jarvis Landry had a rather cryptic tweet on Friday night and while it might not mean anything for the Cleveland Browns, it still feels eerily familiar
This offseason is about to be an interesting one for the Cleveland Browns as they find themselves facing some important decisions.
While many have been focusing on the quarterback situation and what could happen with Baker Mayfield, there is also a huge call for the Browns to get better at wide receiver. One theory in this department is that they could ask Jarvis Landry to restructure the contract that’s set to pay him roughly $16 million or even outright release him to move that money elsewhere.
Despite all the noise, Landry has remained rather quiet, that is until Friday night when he fired off a cryptic tweet saying “they don’t deserve it” when you “over play your part.”
In all fairness, nothing about this tweet suggests he’s talking about the Cleveland Browns. But then again, it also doesn’t suggest who “they” are, which has led many to believe the Browns are absolutely who is speaking about — hence why it’s considered cryptic.
Cleveland Browns feeling déjà vu
Back in 2018, the Browns traded for Landry and then in 2019, they added Odell Beckham, Jr. who was a former teammate of Landry’s at LSU. The two have been great friends since and seemed thrilled to play together again.
However, not everything was rainbows and sunshine as Beckham was clearly unhappy — even if we didn’t want to see it. This led to him firing off cryptic tweets that some thought suggested he wanted out of town. Heck, he even told teams to “come get me,” as did Landry, but we ignored that because Landry made a speech and Beckham drove an orange car.
In the end, the writing on the wall proved to be true and OBJ was discovered to not only have one foot out the door, but he was also telling other players not to come to Cleveland.
As for Landry, this tweet could very well be related to something other than football but to simply ignore it would be a mistake. He already admitted in an interview he didn’t know why he wasn’t getting the ball more — even after Beckham was gone — and has been incredibly vocal in his support of his good friend.
Cleveland is likely going to try and do something with Landry’s contract this offseason and if this tweet is any indication, it likely won’t end with a restructure.
