Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry is on the brink of a rather unique milestone that will place him beside two all-time greats. Per Mike Florio of NBC Sports, Landry needs just one more solid performance to tie Tampa Bay Buccaneers wider receiver Antonio Brown and 2016 Pro Football Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison for most games with at least five receptions through the first seven years of their careers.
With one more five-catch game this season, Landry will catch Antonio Brown and Marvin Harrison for second place on the list of most games with five or more receptions in the first seven years of a player’s career.
Landry currently has 71 games with five or more receptions, just one below Brown's and Harrison's 72. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver should continue to hold the record with 78 such outings through the first seven years of his career.
Speaking in a press conference on Friday, Landry reacted to closing in on tying the mark with two of the most accomplished wide outs in the history of the game. The 5-time Pro-Bowler called it an honor being in the same breath as Brown and Harrison, both of whom Landry called “legends.” He also added that he hopes to carve out a career similar to the two.
Landry has made 618 catches throughout his career so far and led the league in receptions in the 2017 season. The 28-year old is in somewhat of a down year this season, with just 54 catches through 12 games so far. He is on pace to set a single-season career-low for himself in this regard.
Nonetheless, Landry still has a long career ahead of him and should be in line to finish his career as one of the top catchers in NFL history when it's all said and done.
