The Cleveland Browns have released wide receiver Jarvis Landry. He is now free to negotiate with other teams during this legal tampering period.
The Browns tried to trade Landry. However, a deal could not be reached with another team.
The team also attempted to restructure his contract before Monday’s release. The two sides could not agree to the right restructured number.
Landry had publicly demanded a trade from the Browns, according to his social media posts. The team permitted him to seek out a deal.
“The trade for Jarvis Landry in 2018 was a key moment for our organization,” Executive Vice President and GM Andrew Berry said. “Jarvis’ on-field production and fiery competitiveness speaks for itself, but his leadership and team-oriented attitude impacted our culture in a way that will last in time even beyond his release. These decisions are always difficult, but we wish Jarvis well and we look forward to the day when he returns as a storied Browns alumnus.”
He became expandable with a forthcoming move that will become official when the new league year begins. The Browns will acquire Amari Cooper in a trade with the Dallas Cowboys.
In exchange for Cooper, who will undoubtedly become the team’s top receiver in Cleveland, the Browns gave up two late-round draft picks.
Landry will have a market for his services. One possible location being mentioned right now is the New England Patriots.© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
