Reason No. 2 Cleveland Browns should release Landry: The Drama
The drama is real when you speak of Jarvis Landry. It started before he even came to the Browns in 2018. Before he departed from the Dolphins there were stories of Landry’s lack of leadership and confrontations with coaches and that he was a “me-first” type of player.
You can read this in a story by Brian Miller on FanSided and Phin Phantic. He reports of Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald learning of these issues from within the Dolphins organization.
Does any of this sound familiar? Do you remember the 2019 season Browns fans? And the weekly discourse that Landry, Odell Beckham Jr., and Baker Mayfield all had a part in trying to have then Browns coach Freddie Kitchens removed as the coach with their continuous blame game attitude and contrite actions. Every week it seemed Landry and others were creating stories and trying to create problems for the team.
If you take a look at Landry’s past and the stories, especially in Miami, you’ll see a player with a history of drama and one that can make it all sound good to his fans, and yet on the inside of the team, he’s trying to create issues for the sake of making himself look better.
Many Landry supporters will turn to the speech he gave his new Browns teammates when he was beginning training camp and was captured on video as part of the HBO series “Hard Knocks”. The cameras were on, Landry knew that and made the most of the moment.
That moment has captivated his fans and had them believe he is an extraordinary leader. That, however, is not what he is, and one can only look to Miami for a history lesson and find out that drama is a way of life for Landry. Causing controversy to support his own needs is all that matters it seems.
