Training Camp

Another viral moment from Jarvis Landry had nothing to do with catching passes

Friday wasn't a busy night for Jarvis Landry and the Browns passing game, but Cleveland's Pro Bowl wide receiver still found a way to go viral for something good he did on the field.

To cap off a run-heavy drive in the first quarter, Browns running back Carlos Hyde trotted into the end zone untouched for a 4-yard touchdown. One of the biggest reasons why a stiff-arm or any other contact wasn't necessary? He got a block from Landry that absolutely wiped out Bills defensive back Taron Johnson.

Landry admitted Sunday he's heard from plenty of the thousands and thousands of people who have watched the play on loop over the past 48 hours.

"We scored a touchdown and that's what it takes sometimes," Landry said.

Landry has been one of the team's most active and productive receivers since the start of training camp, reeling in highlight catch after highlight catch. He made an immediate impact in the team's preseason opener when he hauled in a 32-yard pass from Tyrod Taylor. 

On Friday, though, the Browns came in with a mindset to establish the run and hammered away at it. Taylor, over the course of four series, attempted just seven passes.

"It has to be a great balance," Landry said. "Some games we are going to have to throw the ball a majority of the game. Some games we are going to have to run the ball, but at the same time when you have that balance and the running back is getting to the second and third level, that is what you love to see."

Those running backs will love what they see from Landry if those types of blocks keep paving the way for touchdowns.

"I pride myself on being a complete receiver," Landry said. "It takes those types of plays, making those types of blocks or just a block period to make sure Carlos can get in, Duke (Johnson), whoever it is or another receiver. It's important."
