Before throwing Jarvis Landry a pass [url=http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-doug-flutie-jersey]Doug Flutie Jersey[/url] , the Browns made a huge commitment to him.
Cleveland signed the star wide receiver to a five-year, $75 million contract extension on Friday night, locking up a game-changing player they’re counting on for the future.
A three-time Pro Bowler acquired last month in a trade with Miami, Landry was at the team’s headquarters Friday as the Browns continued preparations for an NFL draft that may re-shape their franchise.
“Jarvis Landry is the type of football player we want on this team for a long time,” general manager John Dorsey said. “Obviously, he’s an accomplished playmaker, that’s why we went after him in the trade but in his short time as a Brown we can already see the type of leadership and competitiveness he’s going to bring to his teammates. We are very pleased that we’ve been able to secure him to a long-term contract.”
Landry led the NFL with 112 catches last season and scored nine touchdowns, two more than Cleveland’s entire receiving corps.
The 25-year-old will make an immediate impact for a Cleveland team that lost all 16 games last season and is 1-31 in two years under coach Hue Jackson.
“I’ve always dreamed of two things: taking care of my family and playing football,” Landry said. “I’ve become a product of hard work [url=http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/anthony-miller-jersey]Authentic Anthony Miller Jersey[/url] , sacrifice, persistence, and mental toughness. Jerry Rice said the thing that made him so great was the fear of failure. I’ve been afraid of failure my whole life. I’ve endured my share, but in each and every discomforting time I’ve failed, I’ve also grown, I’ve also learned, I’ve also found success.”
The Browns have the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks and are expected to select a quarterback. However, that pick is likely to spend at least one season backing up newly acquired QB Tyrod Taylor, who will have Landry as a target.
The Eagles report to camp today [url=http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com/authentic-adidas-jonathan-toews-jersey]Authentic Jonathan Toews Jersey[/url] , which means we can resume the daily monitoring of their quarterback situation.
But it might be a bit before Carson Wentz is ready to resume his full-time role ahead of Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the most likely scenario is that the Eagles will place Wentz on the active/physically unable to perform list, as he comes back from last December’s knee injury.
Players can be activated from that list at any time, so it’s a bit of a formality, and not an indication of a larger problem. There’s also a chance the Eagles will leave him off the list and let him practice on a limited basis.
The underlying reality is that Wentz isn’t ready at the moment to practice fully, which is why it was so important for the Eagles to hang onto Foles this offseason.
They’re still optimistic about his long-term condition, and since they have a proven backup, there’s no reason to rush him now.
