Signing Jarvis Landry Is A Massive Boost To The Saints Receiving Core
Another LSU Tiger is coming back to New Orleans. The Saints signed Pro Bowl safety Tyrann Mathieu a few weeks ago who played at LSU from 2010 to 2011; now they’re bringing back another Tiger in Jarvis Landry who played at LSU from 2011 to 2013.
Last season with Cleveland over 12 games, Landry caught 52 balls for 570 yards, but I think he has a lot of good football left in him as Cleveland wasn’t the best situation for him. In his 4 seasons with the Browns, Landry only played 2 full seasons vs playing all 65 possible games in Miami at the start of his career.
Landry hasn’t been a number one receiver since his days in Miami, but now in New Orleans he has the potential to be option number one if Michael Thomas doesn’t plays in 2022. But if Thomas comes back, he’ll be a true number two with a way better number one option to take attention away from Landry. This’d leave him with favorable matchups; below average nickel corners, safeties, or even outside linebackers.
His contract is a 1 year, 3 million dollar base salary that can be doubled through incentives. A big time get for the Saints as this deal won’t break the bank for them. Now the final piece is bringing Odell Beckham home to reunite the old LSU squad.
