We are still without mention of what’s heading back to South Beach, but we do know Landry is comfortable with the situation.
In fact, he’s so comfortable with the deal that the Browns organization and Landry’s camp are already working towards a new long-term multi-year deal to keep the talented wideout in The Land for quite some time, per Mike Jones of USA Today.
Source confirms Browns are getting WR Landry from Dolphins for two picks. Browns also negotiating toward a new multi-year deal for Landry, who had signed the franchise tag.

Landry’s situation with the Phins has been an unsettled one all offseason long. Rumors swirled, pointing his next stop is many different directions.
Instead of losing him via free agency, Miami decided to tag the three-time Pro Bowler in order to look for a return. It finally appears that return has come.
Neither of the picks in Jarvis Landry trade are a first- or second-round picks, per sources. So it will be two picks between rounds 3 and 7.

Landry, famously known as good buddies and an LSU teammate with Odell Beckham Jr., has torn up the NFL over the last three seasons. After a rookie season in 2014 that produced 758 yards and five scores on 84 receptions, he’s twice surpassed the 1,000-yard mark and once led the league in receptions (112 in 2017).
Now, teaming with the always dangerous Josh Gordon, the Browns offense outside looks pretty damn unstoppable on paper. Perhaps quarterbacks everywhere are now looking at The Land as a viable landing spot to call home.
