Browns' Jarvis Landry praises Todd Haley while throwing some serious shade at Dolphins
Landry continues to take shots at his former team
Jarvis Landry has been all-in on the Browns , and he's been less than kind to the team that drafted him. Landry praised new offensive coordinator Todd Haley's playbook, while simultaneously implying that the Dolphins never used him correctly.
Landry told the NFL Network on Monday that the Browns have three times as many routes for him in the playbook as what he ran in Miami, adding that "[Haley] doesn't treat me as just a slot guy."
Landry hasn't held back on the Dolphins this offseason, and Ryan Tannehill in June. He seemed to take the way things ended with the Dolphins personally, that he called "disrespectful" to a tweet when he was traded, saying
Landry led the NFL in receptions last season at 112, but he had just 987 yards -- or 8.8 yards per reception. His 466 yards after the catch were even pretty pedestrian, ranking 12th in the NFL -- so his comments about being treated as a slot guy may not be unwarranted.
If Josh Gordon has the year he's capable of opposite from Landry, we could see Landry's numbers inflate. The 2017 receptions leader definitely has some pressure to perform up to his $75 million contract. He's getting paid like a top receiver, and he thinks that the Browns are putting him in a position to prove that he belongs in that tier.
