Saints sign WR Jarvis Landry

Free agent wide receiver Jarvis Landry revealed on social media Friday that he is joining the New Orleans Saints.

NFL Network reported that the five-time Pro Bowler will sign a one-year contract worth up to $6 million.

It marks a homecoming for Landry, a Louisiana native and former LSU star.

Landry started 12 games in 2021 for the Cleveland Browns, missing time with a knee injury. He caught 52 receptions for 570 yards and two touchdowns — all representing career lows.

In four years with the Miami Dolphins (2014-17) and four with the Browns (2018-21), Landry racked up 688 catches for 7,598 yards and 37 touchdowns, adding 239 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the ground.

Landry, 29, will join first-round draft pick Chris Olave and 2019 NFL receiving leader Michael Thomas in New Orleans’ receiving corps next season. Thomas missed the 2021 season while recovering from an ankle injury.

Landry also followed his former LSU teammate, New Orleans native Tyrann Mathieu, to the Saints. The defensive back signed with the Saints earlier this month.
