Browns WR Jarvis Landry wants another year in Cleveland, claims he returned too early from injury – The Athletic

Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry said via Twitter he came back too early from multiple injuries during the 2021 season and hopes he can return to Cleveland for next season.

Landry, 29, missed five games last year (Weeks 3-6 and 15) with ailments. With injuries to Landry and quarterback Baker Mayfield, the five-time Pro Bowl wideout tallied single-season lows in receptions (52) receiving yards (570) and receiving TDs (two).

Landry is entering the final year of his contract with a $16.4 million salary cap figure. The Browns could be considering cutting Landry, which would save the team $14.9 million in cap space, via Over The Cap.

Part of Landry’s messages on Twitter on Tuesday morning: “Reality behind all this is I came back to play in the best shape of my life, I got hurt week 2 with a high grade MCL Sprain, Partial quad tear and bone bruise. Then came back way to early and ended up staying hurt the entire season. You never heard me mention anything about it …

“I have put the ball in CLE court by telling them I would like to stay 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.”
