Colts free agent receiver watch list expands with latest Browns drama
The Indianapolis Colts may soon have another receiver on the market to target following a Twitter rant by Jarvis Landry.
Every day of the NFL offseason, it seems like there is a new disgruntled star. In true 2022 fashion, fans and media alike find out through social media.
The latest chapter of this theme was brought to fans by Cleveland Browns receiver Jarvis Landry. Landry took to Twitter Tuesday morning to express where he stands with the Browns organization.
His message was that he’s always given his all to Cleveland and that the ball is in the team’s court. If they want to keep him, he will stay, but he will also take his talents elsewhere to chase a Super Bowl.
Jarvis Landry speaks on future with Browns
Landry has been instrumental in the turnaround of Cleveland since arriving via trade in 2018. There’s the famous “Hard Knocks” clip of Landry talking to his teammates about changing the culture, and behind his lead, the Browns made it to the postseason in 2020.
Despite this, it appears as if his time in Cleveland may be coming to an end. Considering the questions around quarterback, Baker Mayfield, and also the fact that Landry watched his best friend, Odell Beckham Jr., leave Cleveland and win a Super Bowl, it would make sense if he wants out.
It may also benefit the Browns to move on as far as cap space goes. Landry is entering the final year of his contract and has just over a $16 million cap hit.
There will be a lot of negatives to letting a player like Landry go, but many teams throughout the league are hoping it comes to that. The Indianapolis Colts should be one of them.
Colts could target Jarvis Landry if he becomes available
Indy is a team that needs help at the wide receiver position so it should have its eyes on every talented receiver that becomes available.
Landry would be the perfect player to add to the Colts’ locker room. He’s a talented receiving threat, a great culture setter, and is also an extremely good blocking receiver.
That’s important for a team like Indianapolis that loves to run the ball with Jonathan Taylor.
Lining Landry up opposite of Michael Pittman Jr. would give the Colts offense a dynamic they haven’t had in years. Landry isn’t available just yet, but Indy must add him to the watch list in the event that he does part ways with the Browns.
