Free agent receiver Jarvis Landry is visiting the Saints this week, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

Fowler adds that the Browns also remain “in the mix” for Landry.

The Browns cut Landry on March 14, and he has remained a free agent since. He was scheduled to make $15.1 million in salary and bonuses while carrying a salary-cap hit of $16.38 million in 2022, the final year of his contract with the Browns.

Landry, 29, had 52 receptions for 570 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games last season. In four seasons in Cleveland, he made 288 catches for 3,560 yards and 15 touchdowns.

The Saints will get Michael Thomas back this season, and they have Marquez Callaway, Tre'Quan Smith and Lil'Jordan Humphrey as the top options behind him.

  1. I think he is a great player but 15m is too much for a soon to be 30-year old 2nd/3rd receiver.

  2. Proceed with caution…He’s not looking to win, he’s looking for the most money.

  3. It looks to me like the Saints could make good use of Landry. Michael ( Slant ) Thomas got his mega-deal and is in his rocking chair. He will never again trouble himself to catch more than 50 balls.

    He and Sammy Watkins are the 2 most overrated WRs in the NFL.
    While Landry is a complimentary receiver & does not deserve $15 million, he is far better than Watkins. Watkins is the overrated one, not Landry.

  5. It’s too late in the process for Landry to think he will be getting anything close to what his contract was. Those saying he’s not worth that much are right, but he also knows he won’t be getting that much. The free agent market is drying up, so the remaining players know they’re going to have to lower their price tags.

  6. Jarvis is the epitome of integrity. He lays it all out, every practice, every game. He is passionate about winning. The fact that he is visiting the Saints and the potential to have Winston throwing him balls versus Deshaun Watson is very telling. Seems to me that he doesn’t see Watson leading the Browns to the promised land either. If he’s not doing cartwheels over playing with Watson, that’s saying a lot.
