Landry is a good player, but jesus that is a lot of money. What is Julio Jones worth?
And if Sam Darnold is good, Cleveland is going to be on the upswing.
A ton of other WR's are waiting for their contracts to end. They're about to be paid. Landry has to do well, or you know the NFL....cut him.
Browns signed Jarvis Landry to a five-year, $75.5 million extension through 2023.
ESPN's Josina Anderson was the first to report the impending deal. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the contract includes $47 million guaranteed, and Landry is now the fifth-highest paid receiver in the league based on average salary. It is a shocking price to pay for a volume-based player who never elevated Miami's passing attack past mediocre, but Landry at worst can be a reliable safety blanket for whichever quarterback Cleveland selects with the No. 1 overall pick.
My argument was never that Landry couldn't get what he wanted to be paid from somebody, it was always that he couldn't get what he wanted to be paid from a well-run franchise. Cleveland is clearly a dumpster fire that simply wants to continue raging. I hope the like screens.
In a league as prone to injury as the NF... Production should get you paid, no matter how people want to spin it. Happy for the man.
Exactly. Good for Landry but they got suckered.
I'll take a 4th to avoid this any day. These are the contracts we're trying to get away from. That contract is ludicrous for his production.
Jarvis Landry’s $47M in guarantees from #Browns is significant. Mike Evans got $55M, DeAndre Hopkins got $49M on 5-year extensions. Landry’s new deal puts him right there with Julio at $47M. Then comes Dez Bryant at $45M and Demaryius Thomas at $43.5M in 2015. … Big commitment
Jarvis Landry is not worth that kind of money. No way Miami would have paid him. Overpaid. Thats the NFL these days.
Daaaaaaamn that’s a lot of guaranteed money, i really didn’t think he’d get that much....
well he got what he wanted. to bad he will be playing in that dump
Browns will Browns......what a dumb contract to give him. Glad we didn't do it
If anybody thought he was going to get less I don't know what planet they're from. Good Luck to Jarvis, I wish him nothing but the best. He brought something to the fins that I haven't felt in a long time and that's swag and moxie. He did well for us we just couldn't afford him any longer and that's a mistake a front office who should have signed him earlier to long-term.
ditto atrdnj.........We let him walk because we didn't engage him last year. Pay Cutler 10M why don't we? What a joke! It's good that Jarvis is now laughing all the way to the bank........
Cant blame them for something you assume.
Landry wasn't signing with us long term early because he wanted more than $11 or $12 million a year but let's keep blaming someone for that.
Good for Landry suckers are the Browns.
if cleveland is the only team willing to trade for you and pay you than im pretty sure it was a bad decision and one im glad we didnt make.
At $15.1M per year,we made out better. Would have loved to extend Juice earlier, but those numbers simply are not worth it.
I wish Jarvis the best. Time for us to move on.
So glad we got a 4th for him, putting the franchise tag on him was definitely the right move. It gave us tremendous leverage (don't care what anyone says) which netted us a 4th rounder, instead of just losing him for nothing in FA which most definitely would have been the case. Very well played by the FO, that's how you use the 1 piece of leverage that you have (the franchise tag) instead of just giving up an asset for nothing.
Keep your swag and moxie.
Jakeem Grant might have more TD's than Landry in 2018, at 1/30th the cost.
No ill will but I also won't be rooting for him.
No blame just happiness for Landry, he gave his all here. Also, id you think Gase wanted him here Long term that is funny cause all signs I saw makes me believe he wasn't really wanted here. But it's managements call and i defer to them and what they know or see. In the future, signing obvious sruds has ro be.done earlier than later or else we'll keep no one for 5 years.
I agree. Move on. All the best to Jarvis. I don't think we'll ever know for sure what might have been if our FO was more proactive -- at least we could have gotten a better trade.
But that's crazy money...
Good for him. Glad it wasn't us.
Wanted the money, got the money. Wish him the best and I will miss him in a Dolphins uniform, but I'm glad we didn't give him that contract.
We got value for him, found some replacements, and saved a ton of cash.
I saw him at a Whole Foods in Fort Lauderdale a few weeks ago. Wish him luck!
We gave Mike Wallace 30 in guaranteed 6 years ago. Landry is definitely worth this deal.
Yep. Mind numbing stuff. That 10 million was one of the worst moves in Miami history given the repercussions.
using our past mistakes to quantify someone else's mistakes is not a good argument. The fact that we didn't pay Landry this much after all the stupid contracts we have given makes me have some faith for the first time
Landry probably would have signed for $13, but seeing it was Cleveland, it needed to be $15! LOL
I like Landry and wish he was still in Miami.
If FO really wanted Landry, they would have found a way to make it happen.
Good Luck, Juice!
Can't believe some of us are still blaming the Phins, no other team (which includes Miami and rightfully so) were willing to pay him that kind of money regardless if we signed him last year or this year, the Browns got him and he got the money he wanted, nothing more to be said. Some complain about Suh and his contract, now that we draw a line in the sand in regards to landry some of those same people complain.....just can't win.
On paper the Browns just might have a better roster than us...
well good luck juice thank for 4 good yr with dolphins. if you go pay have decent qb 30 million. juice would be dumb to take pay cut in nfl. get your money. the nfl only want pay qb money. the sad part maybe 9 to 10 good qb in nfl.
No, what I mean is that Wallace got 30 million in guaranteed despite only being Mike Wallace. As to where Landry set records when inflation is rocketing NFL contracts like never before so the MARKET would dictate that Landry is worth this. 16 million more than Mike Wallace for Landry is today's NFL is actually a pretty good deal for both parties.
Maybe it would help to look at other players getting deals today. Like Devante Adams is the 4th highest paid receiver in the league. And Devante Adams is...well, not nearly as good as Jarvis Landry.
We had a pretty good discussion about Jarvis Landry's absence on the latest episode of 3 Yards Per Carry. Some good points in both directions, a lot of points and factoids that we don't generally hear people talking about.
Bottom line we're a bit mixed on him leaving, but this monstrous contract makes us feel a bit less mixed, I think.
The guy was a warrior on game day and I wish him the best. I think this might be one of those rare win/ win deals where both parties are better off. Gase has his guys and Juice has his green!
I would agree with that. They got a steady QB, they have a legit oline, they have Landry and an xfactor in Gordon if he wants to be part of things. The defense has exciting young players like Garrett and Peppers. Give them a Saquon Barkley and they could certainly compete in the impotent AFC.
while inflation is fair, jarvis landry is nowhere near as good as devante adams. landry will put up more receptions because of his route tree but his impact on the field doesn't match Adams. Talk to packers fans about adams and you will see how much they value him. He proved last year when Rodgers went out that he was easily the best WR on that team (and that includes Nelson)
I have plenty of Packers friends. I grew up in Packer country. If you want to say Adams is good, then fine. But you cannot tell me that Adams is better than Landry. Not even a competition.
Most Packers fans I know are disgusted with the current affairs of things. Completely wasted(ing) Rodgers prime. And that includes shelling out that contract for Adams.
