3 Best Remaining Jarvis Landry Destinations Following the 2022 NFL Draft
Now that the 2022 NFL Draft has passed, several notable free agents remain unsigned — including veteran wide receiver Jarvis Landry.
Landry has been searching for a new job ever since the Browns bought him out for cap-related reasons back in March. Many teams could use someone of his caliber, though, especially after catching nearly 700 balls for almost 7,600 receiving yards and 37 touchdowns in 123 games played.
Keeping that in mind, here's a look at the three best remaining Landry free agency destinations following the 2022 NFL Draft.
Jarvis Landry Free Agency
1. New Orleans Saints
It was reported last week the New Orleans Saints are one of the remaining teams interested in Landry's services. The Saints WR room already has Michael Thomas and 2022 first-round pick Chris Olave, but more depth is needed to compete in the NFC. Landry would be a lot of help after recording at least 970 receiving yards in five of the last seven seasons. Sure, he had a down season with 570 yards in 12 games last year, but that was still more than any Saints WR other than Marquez Callaway (698). If Landry and Thomas bounce back while Olave makes a seamless transition to the NFL, New Orleans could have quite the dangerous passing game.
2. Cleveland Browns
It'd shock a lot of people if Landry returned to the Browns, but it's a legitimate possibility. There was "mutual interest" after Landry was bought out regarding a potential return to Cleveland. After all, he has spent the last four seasons building a life in Cleveland and likely would've still been on the payroll had the Browns not needed to create cap space. A WR core with Landry, Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones and rookie David Bell is more than enough to get excited about. With interest dwindling from outside suitors, returning home to Cleveland might be the best call for Landry.
3. Atlanta Falcons
With Calvin Ridley suspended for the 2022 NFL season, the Atlanta Falcons drafted USC's Drake London eighth overall in the first round. London has the potential to be a top-end wideout one day, but it might be smarter for the Falcons to bring in a veteran like Landry to take some pressure off the rookie. Landry is more than capable of being the top target in 2022, which can help London adjust to the pro level as he takes on the easier matchups and assignments. Besides, Landry will at least make the Falcons' offense look more respectable if they hope to be more competitive than they were in 2021.
