Jarvis Landry remains on the market as one of several free agent wideouts looking for a new deal. While a return to Cleveland has remained on the table throughout the offseason (including earlier this week), that may be getting less and less likely.

According to Tyler Dragon of USA Today, the chances of Landry re-signing have “‘decreased’ since the draft” (Twitter link). The Browns selected two wideouts with their nine picks – David Bell in the third round and Mike Woods in the sixth – having already traded for Amari Cooper.
Still, the team has been connected to remaining free agent options, the most familiar of which would be Landry. The 29-year-old put up career-lows in receptions (52), yards (570) and touchdowns (two) across 12 games this season, as the Browns’ offense struggled mightily as a whole. With one year left on his deal, the Browns released him in March, saving over $14MM in cap space.
Re-joining the team at a lower rate than his previous deal has remained a possibility, though disagreements on compensation was much of the reason for the termination in the first place. Once reported to be seeking roughly $20MM per year, Landry has generated interest from multiple teams, albeit likely not at that rate. The veteran has had visits with the Falcons and Saints, though both of those used first-round picks on receivers in the draft.
Landry – like former Browns teammate Odell Beckham Jr. – will likely start to generate more interest in the final waves of free agency. Those two, along with the likes of Will Fuller and T.Y. Hilton, should start to find new homes in the near future, a process which, in Landry’s case, would seemingly lead him outside of Cleveland.

1 year 7M when it’s all said and done.
now is the time where guys hold out fir highest possible contract , before settling for way less once camp opens
Eagles should sign him (Landry) and trade for Baker Mayfield
Why, so they can underachieve and not win a SB?
@Class, what are they doing now?
Nick Fooes is always available. Just saying…
Foles. Damn autocorrect.
agree with Landry to Eagles but not Baker. Landry IMO is a step up from Smith.
Landry isn’t a step up from Smith anymore, but also they’ll probably want a lot of those slot snaps to get the ball in Brown’s hands.
smith is likely to take a huge step up as a sophomore
He is definitely not a step up from Smith anymore but he could easily be wr3
Philly seems like a weird fit for him. They play Goedert in the slot a lot, Brown usually plays a lot there, and Smith makes sense there part time. Signing a guy who’s used to mostly lining up there strikes me as odd at this point.
Tell you what. Sign Landry and we’ll throw in Baker. No need for a trade. But you’ve got to take all the baggage including the 18M.
Can that be done?
Started to show his age last year. He still probably wants $13-15M per year but he isn’t worth that at this point.
Didn’t he want $20M?
Let me ask you this…at this point would you take Juju or Landry on a 3-4 year deal?
Neither. One is too old, unless it’s an easy out with voidable years and the other has some proving to do first, both health and maturity
Touche, though I was meaning to imply you had to pick. And that, at this point, Juju is worth more in my opinion and look where that’s getting him.
One is on a team and the other is a free agent. So how is that a comparison?
Landry likely wants a 3-4 year deal. My point was, Juju offers a relatively similar skill set is much younger, and his only decent offers were 1-year, seven-figure deals.
If I’m any team and I was even considering paying Landry $10-20M (especially for more than 1 year), I’d have just signed Juju.
That’s a pretty good comparison. As a Steelers fan, I wasn’t sad to see JuJu go. Nice kid and all, but his talent isn’t so unique that you’d overspend for him. Having watched Landry over these past few years, yeah, it’s about the same. He’s not an elite receiver but wants elite money
Wrong Mike Woods link fyi
Cowboys should be all over Landry. He’d be a nice compliment to Lamb until Gallup gets back.
Landry and Gallup fill different roles. Landry mostly plays in the slot, which Gallup very rarely does. Lamb is more of a slot player. The Cowboys have James Washington and now Jalen Tolbert to take Gallup’s snaps while he’s out.
Good points. I stand corrected.
I’m sure Landry would like to go to a contender, I’d like to see him go to Chicago, just so that Fields has more professional help.
I don’t think Landry will go to a team with a worse quarterback than Mayfield was last year, unless it’s his only option. Look at what Fields did to ARob. Probably cost him millions in Free agency. If I were Landry, I’d signed with KC if there was an offer. I think going back to Cleveland would be a good career move
