5 things to know about new Browns WR Jarvis Landry

Five things to know about wide receiver Jarvis Landry, whom the Browns acquired via trade with the Miami Dolphins...

  1. Landry, a three-time Pro Bowler, has been the Dolphins' best receiver since Miami drafted him 63rd overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. Over that span, the former LSU star has been one of the league's most productive players, amassing 400 receptions (the most ever in the first four years of a career), 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns.
  1. In 2017, Landry led the NFL in receptions with 112 catches despite losing starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the preseason. For context, Cleveland's wide receivers combined for 134 receptions last year.
  1. In coming to Cleveland, Landry reunites with his former position coach, Adam Henry, whom the Browns hired to be their wide receivers coach in January. Henry held the same position at LSU from 2012-14, where he worked with Landry and now-Giants star Odell Beckham Jr. The pair of receivers finished their college careers ranked among the top-10 in school history in receptions and 100-yard games.
  1. Landry played in 40 career games with the Tigers, totaling 137 catches for 1,809 yards and 15 touchdowns. Most of that production came during his final season at LSU in which he hauled in 77 passes for 1,193 yards and 10 scores. He was also a team captain.

5.* *Landry joins a new-look Browns offense that recently added quarterback Tyrod Taylor (whom Cleveland acquired from Buffalo) and a receivers room that includes Josh Gordon -- the league's leading receiver in 2013 -- and Corey Coleman, Cleveland's first-round draft pick in 2016. Gordon returned from a suspension that kept him off the field for three years in December while Coleman's first two seasons have been marred by hand injuries. The Browns also tabbed Todd Haley, who spent the past six years with the Steelers, to be their offensive coordinator in January.
