Latest On Jarvis Landry

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.
