After Jarvis Landry was released by the Browns in March, there was word that the team was interested in bringing him back on a different contract.

The lack of a new deal over the last couple of months was a strong suggestion that conversations about such a deal were not fruitful and there’s now a report confirming that thought. Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports the door is closed on a Landry return.

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said the team feels good about its receiver room after drafting David Bell in the third round and Michael Woods in the sixth round. Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones sit atop the depth chart in Cleveland.

Landry visited the Saints in April and Cabot reports other teams have also expressed interest in signing the veteran wideout.

  1. The Brown’s will sign Antonio Brown. He is better than Amari Cooper and cheaper.

  2. He’s still a good possession receiver, but my guess is his attitude wore thin. Miami couldn’t wait for him to leave, they would have packed his bags and drove him to Cleveland if they could.

  3. Remember when he and Beckham were going to set the NFL on fire? Good times … good times.

  4. Seems like Landry is going to sign after most teams rookie mini camps when coaches have a little bit better idea of how their rookies stack up. Chargers, Colts, 49ers, Packers and Ravens all seem to be teams trying to win(cant imagine Landry going to a rebuild even for just 1 year) and could use him.

  5. Not sure why but I get the sense he will be heRd about in the postseason

  6. That is unfortunate. Jarvis was instrumental in changing the culture and fostering an environment that was focused on winning. Sad to see him go but wish him the best.

  7. I would love for him to return to the Dolphins. I know the team is stacked at WR. However, I think Landry would get to the next level working with Wes Welker. The Dolphins could move on from Bowden to make room.

  8. Jarvis obviously has a price and nobody has met it because he is too talented to not be signed right now. That Christian Kirk deal probably has a lot to do with it

  9. Thanks to the “Dunderkind” Adam Gase he managed to shoot himself in the foot by his “I’ll show this team who’s boss” moves. By trading Ajay Ajayi and Jarvis Landry. The latter being an excellent third down receiver and a heck of a blocker. The former the Dolphins best running back since Ricky Williams shot himself in the foot. Landry’s asking price is a little too high.
