The Cleveland Browns have been busy this offseason, to say the least. However, their biggest move thus far came with the acquisition of Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry.
Landry’s name had hit the market following Miami’s disappointing end to the 2017 NFL season. However, according to the Sun-Sentinel, he has no regrets about his time with the Dolphins.:
“You know what, man? I’ve had great people in my corner — my entire family, a couple of mentors of mine,” Landry said. “[I was] just working through the process, just trying to enjoy it. As stressful as it may seem, I try to take joy [in it].
“I’m happy. I can live with what’s happened because I know I gave my all [to the Dolphins] all the time.”
Landry’ comments should come as no surprise. He gave everything he had and more to the Dolphins over the last four seasons. The three-time Pro Bowler was a bonafide steal after being taken with the 63rd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. During that time, he finished with two 1,000-yard campaigns and was the NFL’s leader in receptions last season.
Jarvis Landry was initially set to become a free agent this offseason before Miami slapped the franchise tag on him. As a result, the Browns wasted no time in making their move and ultimately wound up parting ways with merely a fourth-round pick in 2018 and a seventh-round pick in 2019 in exchange.
