Jarvis Landry revealed on his official Twitter account that he has elected to sign with the Saints. The move comes after the Cleveland Browns released him in March, and after a notable waiting period, the Louisiana native decided to return home.
Immediately after news broke that the Saints came to terms with Landry on a free agent deal, Mathieu took to Twitter to provide his reaction to reuniting with his former LSU teammate.

Mathieu and Landry were born and raised in Louisiana, and they each took their talents to LSU in the last decade. The two Pro Bowl talents featured for a mere one season together at the SEC powerhouse, but it was quite a campaign to remember. They starred in LSU’s 13-1 season in 2011 that included an SEC title win coupled with an appearance in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game, although the Alabama Crimson Tide came away from the rivalry showdown with a 21-0 victory.
Overall, the Saints have continued to bolster their depth at the wide receiver position. Not only is quarterback Jameis Winston slated to have Michael Thomas back after the receiver was sidelined for the 2021 campaign due to an ankle injury, but he will also have the likes of Landry and rookie wideout Chris Olave as options to help open up the passing game.
Landry sure will look to redeem himself with the Saints following his roller-coaster tenure in Cleveland.
