Browns WR Jarvis Landry happy with Freddie Kitchens hiring
The Cleveland Browns made headlines with the hiring of Freddie Kitchens as their new head coach. It seems wide receiver Jarvis Landry approves of the decision.
Kitchens will be tasked with leading the current resurgence in Cleveland. Landry feels he is the right man for the job, via Cleveland.com.
“I love him. I think it is a good fit. I think his connection with Baker obviously is going to allow the progress that he we have made so far to continue. For us, as an offense, and change the culture and build the culture, what we need right now is a steady coaching staff, players, things like that and keep winning games,” Landry said.
It is safe to say that Kitchens has made quite the impression on his players. Landry’s comments about him have been echoed by many of his other teammates. The Browns can now take solace in the fact that the relationship between the players and coaching staff seem to be intact for now.
The Browns made a splash with the acquisition of Landry last offseason. He quickly established himself as the team’s No. 1 wideout regardless of which quarterback was under center. He finished the 2018 campaign with 81 receptions for 976 yards and four touchdowns.
Cleveland may have surpassed its lowly expectations last year. However, the bar has now been set rather high moving forward. Landry will need to continue developing his rapport with quarterback Baker Mayfield in order for Kitchens to take this offense to the next level. Mayfield’s skill set will allow the Browns to expand their playbook which could result in more big plays for Landry moving forward.
