He was released by the Cleveland Browns in March. Two months later, he signed with his third NFL team.

Before he departed from the Browns, he went on social media and urged Andrew Berry and the team to trade him. However, once they could not find a trade partner, the NFL team cut ties with the wide receiver.

With the addition of Landry, the Saints now have three receivers, who did not play for the team in 2021. Michael Thomas, who had been the team’s top receiver in recent years, sat out last season due to an injury.

New Orleans then spent a first-round draft pick on Chris Olave. And the team just added Landry to their receiver group.

At best, he’ll now be the Saints’ third-best receiver. Landry could be the team’s slot receiver.

His play has declined in recent years. His worst season came with the Browns last season.

He appeared in 12 games with the Browns last season. He started all 12 games.

Before last season, his worst statistical season came as a rookie in 2014 with the Miami Dolphins. That season, he made 16 appearances, including 11 starts.

He had 84 receptions for 758 yards and five touchdowns.
