Even after releasing Jarvis Landry, the Cleveland Browns hoped the former Pro Bowl receiver might be willing to return at a lower salary for the opportunity to play with quarterback Deshaun Watson. It’s now reportedly safe to rule out a comeback in Cleveland.
Landry, who fired his agent in March, wants a lucrative contract. After seeing Christian Kirk sign a multi-year deal worth $18 million per season, the Pro Bowl slot weapon wanted to top it. Early this offseason, Landry reportedly set an asking price of $20 million per year and when he couldn’t get it, he parted ways with his representation.
Months later, with the 2022 NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, Landry remains a free agent. He is one of the best wide receivers available on the open market and Cleveland wanted him back. However, it seems that won’t be happening.
