Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry has made a name for himself with the Miami Dolphins as a solid slot receiver who operates close to the line of scrimmage and rarely runs routes downfield. Landry averaged just 8.8 yards per catch in 2017, shockingly failing to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards despite catching 112 passes. According to a report from Browns beat reporter Scott Petrak, Landry's new team plans to use him down the field this season. Cleveland offensive coordinator Todd Haley trusts Landry to do more damage further down the field. A crowded pass-catching corps in Cleveland may cut down on Landry's volume this season, but he could make up for that with higher yardage totals.
The Cleveland Browns and wide receiver Jarvis Landry have agreed on a huge contract extension a little over a month after he was acquired from the Miami Dolphins in a trade. The deal will be for five years and $75.5 million, with a massive $47 million guaranteed. Landry has proven his worth as a reliable slot receiver but a crowded Cleveland pass-catching corps may make it hard for him to repeat the sheer number of targets he used to see in Miami. Landry will begin the 2018 season as the fifth highest paid receiver in the NFL. Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandin Cooks, both of whom are entering the last year of their rookie deals, have to be licking their chops at the prospect of their upcoming pay days.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry and his new team have not included a long-term extension as part of the trade, and he could play out the 2018 season on the one-year franchise tag. The two sides will likely discuss an extension, but it's not a guarantee it will happen. Landry could choose to play out 2018 on the one-year deal and see how he fits in with his new offense. Landry set a career high in touchdowns last year while leading the NFL in receptions, but it remains to be seen how he'll fit in Cleveland. At worst, quarterback Tyrod Taylor will be throwing him passes, which isn't a bad thing, but Cleveland also has Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman in the passing game. Landry should still be seen as a WR1 in PPR leagues as of now, but his production could obviously suffer.
