But yesterday, he would find himself on a new team: the Cleveland Browns.

For what it’s worth, however, Landry cannot wait to join the Browns.

But acquiring the standout wideout isn’t the only move Cleveland would make on the afternoon. In fact, this is only the start.A�Landry is coming off a season which saw him lead the league in receptions (112). But he would only rack up 987 yards with all those receptions.A�In the two seasons prior, the wideout would eclipse 1,100 yards.
In return, Miami receives just a 2018 fourth-rounder and 2019 seventh-rounder. That seems a little light, doesn’t it? After all, we’re talking about a three-time Pro Bowler who is only 25 years old. What in the world, Miami?
But good on you, Cleveland. There’s a lot of talent on this roster.
