Aaron Rodgers isn’t the only one taking to social media to address his future. Jarvis Landry took to social media Tuesday morning to address his future with the Cleveland Browns. While doing so, he also detailed his battle with injuries throughout he and the Browns’ tumultuous 2021 season.
Via his Twitter account, Landry said that suffered a high grade MCL sprain, a partial quad tear and a bone bruise during Cleveland’s Week 2 win over Houston. Despite his injury, he continued to play hurt while appearing in 12 games where he caught 52 passes for 570 yards and two touchdowns. He is hoping that those games are not his last in a Browns uniform.
“I have put the ball in [Cleveland’s] court by telling them I would like to stay,” Landry said, “but if not then I’m confident enough in myself to be a better healthy me this year and moving forward to helping do my part in winning a championship elsewhere.”
Quarterback Baker Mayfield would like to have his top receiver back in the fold for the upcoming season, especially after the team parted ways with Odell Beckham Jr.
Before last season, Landry averaged 91 receptions for 1,004 yards and five touchdowns during his first seven seasons in the NFL.
The 29-year-old wideout is going into the final year of his five-year, $75 million contract that is slated to pay him about $16.3 million this season.
