Only five games into the 2018 season, Browns receiver Jarvis Landry already has set a record based on performance in a player’s first five seasons.

With five catches for 69 yards in Sunday’s overtime win over Baltimore, Landry surpassed Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald for the most receptions in the first five years of a player’s career.

Landry has 429. Fitzgerald had 426. Landry could end up with close to 500.

He’s also one of the biggest reasons why the Browns have turned things around, going 2-2-1 after 1-31 from 2016 through 2017.

  1. Browns are surprising everyone. The two losses were very close. They beat NO for 58 minutes and the Raiders…well let’s just say the Browns did what they needed to to win the game, and the ref’s had “different ideas” like redefining “what is a fumble” and “what constitutes a first down.” Browns should be 3-1-1 right now, by rights.

  2. No, by rights, they are exactly where they should be…they could have easily lost this game as well. By that logic, every team in the NFL could be undefeated right now.

  3. calm down Mr. root4cleveland in Cleveland… the browns weren’t going undefeated and a loss is a loss so don’t make excuses cause every team can do that…shoulda coulda woulda!

  4. Too bad he’s a cheap shot player who’s already ended one player’s career (Aaron Williams of the Bills) and could’ve ended another in a meaningless exhibition game this summer with another dirty crackback block. What goes around, comes around.

  5. Loved the guy while the clock was ticking in Miami. The problem is he would do too many dumb things after the whistle or throw a cheap shot here or there.

    Wish him nothing but the best though in Cleveland. He has amazing talent and hopefully with maturity he can do nothing but benefit a team.

  6. I still think the Browns should’ve kept Gordon. They can always use weapons and Gordon is a weapon. They should’ve at least given him a chance to develop a relationship with Mayfield.

    Then I guess Karma likes “cheap shot players” (no he is not by the way). I am suspecting you never played football, at least not outside of an Xbox. He isn’t a dirty player. And if this how Karma responds to “bad” things? I might want to change my attitude and start doing some.

    I’ll take Fitzgerald over Landry for their careers.

    Um…one guy has been playing for 14 years. The other for 5. Seriously dude, how do you even compare the two? I would also take Matt Staffords CAREER over Mahomes CAREER. But who would you want QBing your team right now?

    SMH. Twice.
