Jarvis Landry’s new contract expectations are completely insane

March 27, 2022

Veteran wideout Jarvis Landry is still looking for a new home to play this season, but it’s going to be tough with the kind of money he’s hoping to get. 

Things are completely up in the air for Jarvis Landry in his free agency. While he’s received interest from teams, Landry is still unsigned and it’s unclear when he’ll get things done and find a new place to call home.

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Landry is in the hunt for around $20 million a year with his new deal. With such a wild price tag, it’s no wonder Landry hasn’t signed a contract yet.

NFL rumors: Jarvis Landry contract

The market for receivers has gone up thanks to the monster contracts for Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill. Landry has probably seen the numbers for them and figured he can demand a high price too.

However, Landry hasn’t even come close to matching the kind of production some of the best wideouts in the game have delivered. Last season for the Browns, Landry appeared in 12 games for Cleveland and recorded 52 receptions for 570 yards and two touchdowns.

The year before, Landry caught 72 balls for 840 yards. In 2019, he was a Pro Bowler after recording 1,174 receiving yards and six scores. If he was looking for a new contract after that season, then you could make the argument that he was in line for a big payday.

That was three seasons ago, though, and Landry isn’t the same player. Landry is still only 29 years old and has plenty of good football left in him, but there’s just no way a team is going to pay him $20 million a year. He’s going to have to lower his asking price if he wants to end his free agency in the near future.
