Browns give Jarvis Landry permission to seek trade

NFL: JAN 09 Bengals at Browns

Jarvis Landry is on the trading block.

Shortly after the Browns agreed to acquire wide receiver Amari Cooper in a trade with the Cowboys, the Browns also gave Landry permission to seek a trade, according to multiple reports.

With Cooper slated to cost $20 million against the Browns’ salary cap, the $16.4 million cap hit for Landry is apparently more than the Browns are willing to spend at the wide receiver position.

Last year Landry missed five games and had career-low numbers of 52 catches for 570 yards and two touchdowns. Whether the Browns can find any takers for his big contract remains to be seen.

  1. Jarvis Landry is the most overlooked and under appreciated player in the NFL. The guy is really good and talented . I wish he was on the 49ers roster, John.

  2. Landry is a pretty gritty WR. Might be good to have a veteran presence in Miami at a lower price tag.

  3. If they lose/trade Landry aren’t they basically in the same place they were before the Cooper trade? Why? —One step forward, one back. give up a pick and pay another high dollar receiver a little more for similar production w/ Baker..

  4. So in a ways they’re back where they started when only had Jarvis.

    The difference is Amari is known for randomly going missing in action and that was in Oakland & Dallas, with better QBs. What exactly does the front office think is going to happen when the realization that he’s in Cleveland and Baker is his QB sets in?

  5. With his buddy OBJ gone, one had to know Jarvis would be too. It is completely necessary to heal the locket room——Baker’s locker room.

  6. Cooper is a year and a half younger and slightly better than Landry. Both are good #2 receivers. They are not #1’s and teams should know better than to compensate them as #1’s.

  7. “..the $16.4 million cap hit for Landry is apparently more than the Browns are willing to spend at the wide receiver position.”

    And why they will not move up the NFL hierarchy until they lose this attitude. I was happy for Browns fans when I thought they would have Cooper AND Landry. This figures.

  8. Not evwn worth a 7th round pick for that hideous contract of his. Guy was totally overpaid.

  9. Cooper is a definite upgrade, but is still not worth $20M, IMO. Hopefully, he’ll be motivated and make the Browns WANT to pick up the next 2, nonguaranteed years.
    If Landry would accept his $16M, but over two years, I wonder if they’d keep him, or are they fine with Felton as slot?

  10. I guess some of us Miami fans forgot how Jarvis left the field from his last game in Miami?

    Started a fight, left a rookie in Drake to fight his battle as Jarvis grabbed his ball and left the field.

    No way Grier brings that guy back. Miami doesn’t need a quitter in that locker room.

  11. I AM CLEVELAND. I wish him only the best. WE SUCK and until we actually win something it does not matter. If you can’t pay them then you can’t play them. I still believe Baker Mayfield is the man though. I want him in my foxhole when the bullets are flying.

  12. Out of all the moves the browns could’ve made, they trade for an injury prone, sometimes cares sometimes dsnt wr, and are trading away a WR who seems to give it 100% all the time lol. Drafts are loaded with WRs and at a fraction of the price.

  13. a trio of Devante Parker, Jaylen Waddle, and Jarvis Landry could be lethal in Miami…. fix the way you left Jarvis and come back home

  14. Signing Cooper was the happiest day of Landry’s life. Sometimes a guy can get labeled as a malcontent or something like that. Sometimes it’s right and sometimes it isn’t. Landry can be a clutch player. A player the QB looks for every time he needs someone to make a play. Someone to make the tough catch. You might think every receiver wants the ball, but they don’t. Landry wants the ball. Across the middle, too. He’ll be a really good fit for the right team. The right QB. Brady would love this guy. Russell Wilson wouldn’t mind him either.

    While I 100% agree with the sentiment… time heals all wounds. If anything, I’d love him to come repair that damage. For context.. Jimmy Butler once said the only team he’d never play for.. was the Miami Heat (then went on to call them a bunch of names in the LeBron era)… people mature with time brother.

  16. Nope. No way. Never.

    Miami also needs to move on from Parker.

    This isn’t 2016 anymore. Move on.

  17. The Browns confuse me as a whole. It seemed like they were “right there”, and then went backwards. I would like to see if Bakers injuries last season hampered them more than it seemed to us that were not on the inside. Hold it together, Berry, let’s see what a healthy Baker can do. Don’t give up just yet. Convince Landry to stay for one more season.

  18. I was never all that impressed with the production of OBJ and Landry. OBJ seemed to only care about making spectacular plays while Landry was more like a possession receiver. I feel equally meh about Cooper. He played hard to get that big contract and everyone knew Jerruh would regret it down the road. The Browns will too.

  19. As a lifelong Browns fan, this breaks my heart. Landry always gave 110% no matter the score or time left in the game. And I can count on one hand the WRs who you can count on to catch every catchable ball. Jarvis is on that list. No doubt he’ll be essential to whomever is lucky enough to get him.

  20. The Bowns will NEVER be higher than mediocre . They haven’t been relevant since Jim Brown was running the ball and he is in his 80’s now. Oh that’s right. That team left and became The Baltimore Ravens, 2 time Super Bowl winners. I have watched Baker Mayfield (and his dumb commercials) since he came out of college. He isn’t the answer Browns fans. How about you come into the 21st century and put a logo on those helmets. They look really dull in comparison to the 31 other teams.

    And Mike Gesicki to the mix and it is lights out

  22. Nobody is going to trade for his $14 million salary. Sorry, Jarvis. Teams will just wait until they cut him. And they will.

    Landry is a pretty gritty WR. Might be good to have a veteran presence in Miami at a lower price tag.
    He started his careen in Miami n was on a record setting pace for receptions in a career. I say send him to Tennessee to play with the qb that got him those numbers.

  24. He was hurt last year along with his QB, surprised he had any yards at all. He can help many teams healthy. My view of Detroit is probably same as his. I see the Lions doing the same thing Bengals did over three years. They are ready and with a few more key pieces they will be tuff next year.

  25. there must be a reason cleveland replaced one WR with a bloated contract for another;

    one day they’ll realise the trouble is under centre and not out on the wings;

    that said, don’t see too many takers on a vet WR with a bloated contract coming off a subpar year with a noodle-armed quarterback who can’t see over his own offensive line;

  26. As a Cowboys fan, no, Amari did not go missing from games. The dude played hard every game even when he was hurt. Yes, he made stupid calls during covid but other than that,the problem was mainly on Dak,not Cooper

  27. No one is going to trade for a guy with a 16 million dollar hit against the cap who posted less than 600 yards receiving last year.

  28. It’s still mind boggling how the Browns were able to get the ball to this slow receiver but couldn’t get the ball to OBJ.

  29. If the Browns were smart, they would let Baker Mayfield seek a trade. The Browns could have Randy Moss, Michael Irvin, and Davante Adams and they would still blow because of the QB and HC

  30. Um…. Jarvis left Miami on really bad terms. He is NOT coming back. Way to many decent FA’s and Draft choices this year anyway.
