Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry is enjoying the freedom he's finding with his new team.
Landry contrasted the Browns offense under coordinator Todd Haley with how the Miami Dolphins used him last season, saying Cleveland is giving him three times more routes than he had in Miami, per NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala:
This is the second time Landry has expressed his happiness with his current situation compared to his experiences in his final year with the Dolphins. He spoke in June about how he thought the pair of Tyrod Taylor and No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield represented an upgrade over his quarterback situation in 2017.
"The quarterback play is so important, which has got me that much more excited about Tyrod and [Mayfield] and the way that they're throwing the ball out here, it makes me that much more excited," Landry said, per Cleveland.com's Dan Labbe. "It's a lot better than what I had in Miami. I'm excited about that."
Landry's frustration with his role in Miami's offense is understandable. His 112 catches led the NFL, but he finished with just 987 receiving yards. His 8.8 yards per reception were 108th among qualified players.
In Cleveland, Landry will be the clear No. 1 option in a receiving corps that has a lot of question marks. Josh Gordon has been absent from training camp, while Antonio Callaway received a citation for marijuana possession and driving on a suspended license earlier this month.
Because of that, Landry will be a huge part of Cleveland's passing game, thus providing him an opportunity to be more of a downfield and big-play threat that he was in Miami.
