The Cleveland Browns believe they have their elite quarterback in place after trading for Deshaun watson, and now they must work to get him some WR’s.
Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that after the Browns restructured the contract of newly acquired WR Amari Cooper, they are now in the midst of trying to re-sign WR Jarvis Landry and DE Jadeveon Clowney. The report mentions that the Browns are going “all in to try to win a Super Bowl” this year and would love to bring back both players.
According to Cabot, the Browns have been in talks with agents for both players and will try to get deals done in the near future.
On Monday, the 29-year-old Landry had been given permission to seek a trade following Cooper’s reported arrival. After it became clear he and the Browns were not going to find common ground on his future, presumably under a restructured contract, Landry requested his release, per ESPN.
Watson coming to town may put him right back in Cleveland, especially if Watson wants him back on the team.
In 2021, Landry appeared in 12 games for the Browns and caught 52 passes on 87 targets for 570 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He also added six carries for 40 yards and two more touchdowns.
The 28-year-old Clowney appeared in 12 games for the Browns and recorded 29 tackles, five sacks and two pass deflections.
