Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry finds himself still on the free-agent market after being released by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month. Landry hasn't been able to find anyone willing to meet his $20 million per year asking price and recently changed agents in hopes of finding a deal.

It turns out Landry could end up right back where he started this offseason.

Landry and the Browns have "mutual interest" in him returning to Cleveland, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. This is quite the turn after the team gave him permission to seek a trade elsewhere earlier this month before he was eventually cut.

Landry's new agent, Roosevelt Barnes, claims Cleveland is Landry's "home" and somewhere he wants to be. Barnes also added there's other teams in pursuit of the wideout, though, like the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Browns' recent restructure of Amari Cooper's contract freed up $15 million cap room, which opens the door for a Landry reunion. That financial flexibility could end up being key to fending off rival teams from stealing the five-time Pro Bowler away.
