Browns to ex-Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry: We welcome that swagger

ORLANDO — Maybe Jarvis Landry’s exuberance played a role in the Dolphins parting with him, maybe not.

But one thing is certain: It’s not going to be an issue in the Cleveland Browns’ locker room.

Coach Hue Jackson says the idea of walking a tightrope between showing fiery emotion and crossing the line isn’t his concern with Landry.

“I don’t want to balance that,” Jackson said Tuesday at the annual NFL meetings. “I love that. I love that about him. He brings the energy to our locker room, to our football team, that I think is needed and he brings a swagger that I think is needed. So I’m looking forward to working with Jarvis Landry.”

For his part, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he and Landry parted on good terms: “The last time that we spoke, everything was positive.”

The Browns acquired Landry in a trade, sending the Dolphins a fourth-round draft pick and cap relief.

Although Landry developed into a Pro Bowl receiver for the Dolphins, his career in Miami ended prematurely when he was ejected with six minutes remaining in the finale against the Bills for verbally abusing an official. It was a costly disqualification because he was just 13 yards shy of becoming the first receiver in team history with three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Landry nonetheless finished as the league leader with 112 catches.

Landry averaged 105.3 receptions over his final three seasons in Miami. But he’s joining a perennial doormat whose leading receiver last season was a running back: former Hurricane Duke Johnson, who caught 74 passes. In this decade, the Browns haven’t had a receiver with more than 79 catches and once were “led” by a receiver with 53.

So can Landry hit triple digits in Cleveland, whose overhauled roster includes the addition of quarterback Tyron Taylor?

“Absolutely,” Jackson said. “That’s what he’s been. I mean, Jarvis Landry has shown that he’s one of the best receivers in this league. So there’s no question he can catch 100-plus balls in our system.”
