METAIRIE, La. – New Orleans Synthesis continues to improve its wide receiver group, as Jarvis Landry’s professional bowler is set to join the team five times.
Landry, the former LSU star from outside New Orleans, will be the second local symbol to join the Saints in the past two weeks after signing a safety deal with Tyrann Mathieu. Landry seems to have confirmed his return home by posting a video on social media on Friday with his and the team’s highlights.
Landry “Home !!! Who will see you soon?” Wrote in an Instagram post.
The Saints finished last in the NFL in 2021 due to a barrage of injuries. Wide receiver Michael Thomas missed the entire season with an ankle injury, while quarterback James Winston missed the final 10 games with a ruptured ACL.
But Thomas is expected to return, and the Saints made a pair of deals to move up and select Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olaw as the 11th NFL draft pick.
The 29-year-old Landry has 688 receptions for 7,598 yards and 37 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns. The و 11 and 196-pound 5-foot receivers are likely to slip at first, as they have for most of their career.
The addition of Landry means that the Saints made two major acquisitions in May after showing rare cost constraints in the first two months of the Free Agency. They started the year with about $ 75 million more than the salary cap, then lost the left back of Theron Armstead and the safety of Marcus Williams to other teams and the safety of Malcolm Jenkins until retirement. They signed the New York Jets safety with Marcus Mai, among other minor issues.
The Browns released Landry on March 14 after the parties failed to agree to a restructured contract. After the Cleveland deal for the Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl broad receiver, the Cooper family allowed Landry to pursue business.
Landry, 29, struggled last season with a sprained knee that he suffered in the second week, an injury that kept him out of action for five weeks. He finished the lowest professional level with 52 shots for 570 yards and 4 touchdowns in total.
