Browns release wide receiver Jarvis Landry

The Cleveland Browns have released wideout Jarvis Landry, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

What It Means:

With Amari Cooper coming over from the Dallas Cowboys via trade, the Browns will now release Landry, who had previously been given the team's permission to seek a trade. Landry eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards just once in his four seasons with the Browns, and totaled 570 in his injury-shortened 2021 season.

The 29-year-old's average depth of target dropped each year with the Browns to just 7.9 yards in 2021, limiting his upside as a fantasy option as a result, so a change of scenery could be best for his prospects as a fantasy producer. Landry's days as a 100-catch-per-year receiver may be over, but he'll still be a valued player in the free agency market as a reliable slot receiver.
