The New Orleans Saints have signed free agent wide receiver Jarvis Landry to a one year deal, which was first reported by Jordan Schultz and contract details confirmed by Aaron Wilson.
Landry, 29, played college football at LSU and was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played in Miami for four seasons and made three Pro-Bowls. On March 9, 2018, the Dolphins agreed to trade Landry to the Cleveland Browns for Cleveland’s 2018 fourth-round draft pick. In his first season in Cleveland, Landry led the team with 81 receptions for 976 yards and four touchdowns, on his way to his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl.
With the addition of Odell Beckham Jr., the Browns were expected to be one of the top offenses in the NFL after they had drafted Baker Mayfield. They broke a long playoff drought and thought all was well in Cleveland. His most productive season with Cleveland was in 2019 as he caught 83 passes for 1,174 yards. The last two seasons were disappointing for the team as a whole. On March 14, 2022, Landry was released from the Browns.
Odell Beckham Jr. forced his way out, and so did Landry. He signs a one year deal to return home to Louisiana.
