Jarvis Landry: “I can live with what’s happened because I gave my all all the time”

Jarvis Landry said he’s at peace with the trade that will send him to the Browns.

“You know what, man? I’ve had great people in my corner — my entire family, a couple of mentors of mine,” Landry said, via a video posted by the Sun-Sentinel. “[I was] just working through the process, just trying to enjoy it. As stressful as it may seem, I try to take joy [in it].

“I’m happy. I can live with what’s happened because I know I gave my all [to the Dolphins] all the time.”

The wide receiver denied he orchestrated the trade to the Browns, though the Dolphins had given him permission to seek a trade.

“It just kind of worked out that way,” Landry said.

Landry was scheduled to become a free agent until the Dolphins used the franchise tag on him. Miami received a fourth-round pick in 2018 — No. 123 overall — and a seventh-round pick in 2019 as compensation.

“Once I played my four years, a lot of things were out of my control,” Landry said. “So the four years that I did have to have the opportunity to play for the Miami Dolphins, I left it all there. I don’t have any regrets about that.”

Landry, 25, made 400 catches for 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns in his four-year career with the Dolphins.

He joins a Cleveland receiving corps that includes Corey Coleman and Josh Gordon.

“I’m excited. I’m excited about the next chapter in my life,” Landry said.

  1. Jarvis Landry is one of the greatest Dolphins of the post-Marino era.

    I’ll personally never forget the pass he caught where he got stopped at the line by a few defenders and then a couple of Miami’s offensive lineman ran over and pushed him and the opposing defenders over the goal line. The Dolphins don’t get that score if he doesn’t give up on the play, and that was Jarvis on every snap he played for us.

    I wish him the best. I understand both sides’ needs and wants in this situation but i truly wish nothing positivity wherever his career leads him.

  2. Let’s see if you give your ALL with the Browns to see if you really want to help build a winner?

  3. How good could a player be when traded for a fourth and a seventh from the worst NFL team in history?

  4. Jarvis did give his all! However this separation is best for both Jarvis and the Miami Dolphins; Miami was in ‘Cap Hell’ and really could not afford Landry and rebuild the team with more talent. Jarvis will get a long term contract that he deserves for his efforts. That stated he’s not an outside fast receiver so he will have to settle for that reality and what ever that is in terms of a monetary contract.

  5. I for one am happy to have him. He has given his all for 4 years (400 catches isn’t anything to sneeze at) and I don’t think he will be Kenny Britt (paid and unproductive.) I think he has heart. Now he can build a winner. Watching this team for 19 years (I have actually watching for 40, back when they were not only competitive but good) I want more people with this attitude than those who “want to go to a winner.” Build a winner. That’s how legacies are built.

    Good luck to you Jarvis. You got my backing.

  6. Landry is a really good wide receiver but he wanted more money than the Dolphins could afford . I’m just glad the got 2 draft picks for him.

  7. “The wide receiver denied he orchestrated the trade to the Browns, though the Dolphins had given him permission to seek a trade.”
    ====================

    I’m going to side with Landry on this one because what player of his caliber would willingly go to the Browns? The Cleveland fans are great, but the organization is just a dumpster fire under Haslam.

  8. Browns got a truly excellent player maybe one you build a team around. Dolphins do what they always do, stupid football business. Taninbaum ruined the jets and continues same with Miami.

  9. The Browns were 0-16 and need talented players. Solid moves today that improved their team. Make some impact draft choices and watch out. 7-9 wins are realistic

  10. That statement sounds like he isn’t too happy with his destination and has found out he wasn’t in demand as he thought he was. He couldn’t of been traded to a worse team and environment.
    Wish him the best but he will be a problem when they start rattling off multiple losses back to back to back.

  11. Dorsey seems to know what he’s doing….now he just has to get the draft right. The Browns look like a team that a lot of players might want to start going to.

  12. “Once I played my four years, a lot of things were out of my control,” Landry said.

    Whatever Juice. You turned down a huge offer from Miami wanting #1 money. Love the athlete cliche speak. Enjoy Cleveland.

  13. A 2018 4th round and a 2019 7th round.

    Last year they traded their best RB, this year their best WR. It’s difficult to be optimistic.

    Go Phins.

  14. That’s gotta suck. Being a 23-24 year old millionaire living in Miami and then all of a sudden you are moving to The Mistake by the Lake.

  15. The Browns got a shot at 9-7. They can draft 2 impact players and one future (hopefully) starting QB. They easily could have won 4 games had Taylor been their QB.

    What if they pick Barkley at 1 and Darnold at 4? Darnold is not ready to start so I can’t see the Jets or Broncos trading to 2 or 3 for him.

    IN reality you got some FA QB’s that have to sign before anyone can really start playing fantasy draft. McCarron, Brees, Cousins, McCown, Bradford, Keenum and Bridgewater. Only 1 is willing to be a bridge QB. Buffalo, Arizona, New Orleans, Minnesota, Denver, Jets. All need starters. So Bradford might fall under the back-up role. Same with Bridgewater.

    So you have 6 teams with 4 proven, healthy starters (McCarron presumed to be a starter). Plus 2 question marks. So all 6 QB’s could fall to these 6 teams. (Brees probably stays).
    Depending on who signs whom, then the draft will proceed from there. Best case for Cleveland is the Jets get Cousins and Denver gets McCarron (or vice versa). The other teams won’t have the draft capitol to move into picks 2 and 3 thus the Browns can get Barkley at 1 and Darnold at 4 as the Jets and Broncos won’t trade up. But are the Browns really going to roll the dice on another guy who is turnover prone and needs more time?

    Maybe. Darkhorse are the Giants. They may take Darnold at 2. I know they’ll take Barkley at 2. Browns want Barkley, it has to be at 1. Browns going to take Anderson V2 (Allen) at 4? Is Mayfield a glorified Keenum or even McCoy? Rosen’s concussions may drop him all the way to Arizona.

    All based on this FA QB class. Need a week to get a better picture.

  16. Take Care and thank you.

    Sadly, your last few games in Miami jaded my lone opinion. Drake was the lone man to fight and pay for your final send off in Miami. That spoke volumes. Good luck on your future endeavors.

  17. A blind man can see what’s happening here,,,, something is gonna go down between the Giants and Browns before the draft and when it’s all said and done Landry will be a Giant !

  18. Healthy, productive, tough and a motor stuck on 100%. I loved the way he played in Miami, congrats Browns.

    —————————————————————————–

    Good enough to have 400 receptions after his first 4 seasons in the NFL… which was more than ANY other receiver that’s ever played in the league.

    Now, that does NOT make him the best receiver ever, don’t anyone take it that way, he isn’t.

    But he’s plenty good enough. So he’s not Julio Jones or Antonio Brown or DeAndre Hopkins. Few are.

    But there are many wide outs in the league and there are plenty of good wide outs below that top tier.

    This guy is somewhat of a head case, but as far as talent goes, he’s above average for wide outs, though not in the top tier.

    Teams could do worse (and have).

  20. Glad you can live with it…because now you will need some thermal underwear to live…and, as an added plus: you get to pay Ohio state income tax…congrats!

  21. This is my take on this. I loved Jarvis Laundry and i am pissed he has gone. Cleveland have gained an unbelievable player. Totally gives everything out on the field, the Browns will enjoy watching him especially when I runs defenders over. Seriously Browns fans be very excited. But for us we couldn’t afford him plain and simple, we offered him a decent contract but he felt he is worth more. I will not criticise any player that gives his all on the field, seeking max value for himself while he can, if that’s how they want to play it. I am not sure how the powers that be could have played it any differently as there didn’t seem to be many teams wanting his services probably because they knew this year or next a sizeable chunk of cash would have to be allocated. Not sure how the Browns will figure this out short or long term ? Even if we had the cap space and only marginal position needs I still think we would have traded him. I am not sure how letting him hit the open market and seeing if we could have matched another team how this would have panned out for us regarding picks etc if we had to let him go. But surely we would have discussed all scenarios and likely outcomes. At the end of the day he’s gone, we have a 4th back, and a 7th next year so let’s get on with it.

  22. No one doubts his passion, my concern lied in his not being able to control that passion. Too many times it hurt us in games, I remember him yelling at Gase on the sideline and him getting thrown out of the Bills game. It appeared from an outsider he was spiraling out of control, I honestly wonder what the insiders saw to choose to trade his obvious talent instead of resigning it. When I heard he chose to not run the designed routes at times I couldn’t help but to wonder how that hurts a qbs progression, instead of being instinctual on his reads a player isn’t where he is supposed to be screwing everything up. It explains why when you see some good teams and they look well orchestrated and how I often thought the Fins looked disorganized.

  23. yes, ‘he gave it all’ to aaron Williams and ended chis career with a dirty hit. him and Cleveland deserve each other…

  24. As a Dolphin fan who appreciated how hard Landry tried over the last four years I am very happy that Landry got what he wanted and deserved.
    I will always remember the key contributions Landry made to the Dolphins playoff run in 2016. Without Landry Miami would not have made the playoffs. He made key catches in the 4th quarter to keep drives going against Buffalo and scored the first TD against the Rams.
    Miami will miss Landry. Cleveland offense just got a lot better.
    Jarvis should do well with Cleveland over the next few years
    Best of luck to Cleveland and to Landry.

  25. Take pride in the fact Jarvis that you will be a main factor in returning this franchise back to the glory and success it has known in the past. Browns fans are so desperate to return to winning they will erect a statue in your honor.

  26. why should he have to deny he orchestrated a trade?

    so what if he did?

    teams do it all the time.

  27. I’m happy for the Browns and their fans. They have been in purgatory long enough. Coleman, Gordon (if he can stay clean), Landry, Tyrod and Saquon Barkley sounds like a pretty potent offense to me. I hate to say it, but I think the Bengals and the Ravens will fight it out for last place in AFC North this season.

  28. Great news for Dolfans! Got rid if a slow, short drama queen. No divas under Gase. This wasn’t because Miami didn’t have the money- they just weren’t dumb enough to overpay for a diva slot receiver that doesn’t score points. And wait until the hothead continues to reign in personal fouls…

    Good Luck Browns.

  29. All those Talented WRs on the Browns and Tyrod throws about 4 passes a game to WRs. Lets see how this plays out.

  30. The fins knew a year ago that Landry’s contract expectations were too high, yet Tannenbaum managed to get draft picks. I would say that is a win.

    You should actually be optimistic. Trading their few good players for draft capital better positions them for a rebuild. If they do nothing they would limp along in that rut where you win enough games to miss out on the top draft picks but not enough t

    One of the things that helped launch the Patriot’s dynasty was just how bad a team they were just before that. Its a point worth keeping in mind.

  33. The Dolphins offered him a fair contract and he wanted more money than they were willing to pay. They just weren’t going to be able to sign him and got whatever they could in a trade instead of flat out letting him go. I still don’t believe in Mike Tannenbaum. He is definitely on the hot seat.

  34. I would have been surprised if he stayed with the Dolphins. It just wasn’t a good match. The organization wasn’t behind him. I’m not blaming anyone. It is what it is. You’d think it was a blow to be dealt to the Browns, but if they draft a good QB, Landry will end up being happier in Cleveland.

  35. Whoever did this trade should be fired. A 4th round pick for a guy who gave his all and had 400 catches in 4 years. I guess most of us know who that person is. He dragged the Jets into the gutter, now it’s the Dolphins, disgusting🏈
