During Cleveland Browns Jarvis Landry’s media availability on Monday, he sounded like someone who was fed up with “watching a stagnant offense week-in and week-out while he continues to not get targets.”
Jarvis Landry seems to have thrown some subtle shade at what’s going on in Cleveland in a video posted on Twitter.

“I haven’t been getting the ball so much either,” Landry said. “But at the end of the day, I’ve been able to do with the opportunities I’m given.”
Landry, who has missed four games with a knee injury, trails Beckham for fourth place in Browns receiving yards this season with 219 on 23 catches. Beckham tallied 17 catches for 232 yards before leaving for the Los Angeles Rams, a number that trails Donovan Peoples-Jones’ 16 catches for 330 yards as the most productive Browns wide receiver in 2021.
Tight end David Njoku tops them all with 352 receiving yards on 22 catches. Meanwhile Mayfield is averaging a career-low 221.1 passing yards per game, a rate that has been on a steady decline since his 2018 rookie season produced 266.1 yards per game.
This year’s Browns passing attack ranks 26th in the NFL with 209.7 yards per game, a number that pales in the face of expectations of a would-be explosive offense pegged with Super Bowl hopes. Mayfield is not getting balls to his wideouts on a consistent basis.
The passing game as a whole has been terrible. Baker Mayfield is hurt, and the running backs have suffered injuries. In games that Landry has been targeted a lot, he has had drops and fumbles, so there is a lot of blame to go around from everyone.
It is just one of those struggle years for the Browns. They should be used to it. They have been bad many times before.
