CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns are getting a jump on the offseason plans, and that started Friday when they agreed to trade two picks in the NFL Draft to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for wide receiver Jarvis Landry.
The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport.
Rapoport further reported that the deal included one pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and another selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Schefter reported that neither of the picks the Browns sent to Miami were first or second-round picks.
The MMQB's Albert Breer added this post later on Friday evening with more details:
Over his four-year career with the Dolphins, Landry turned 400 catches into 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns. He averaged 10.1 yards per catch and 63.1 yards per game to go along with 38 catches of at least 20 yards, seven 40-yard plays and 220 first downs.
The 5-foot-11, 208-pound Landry has two 110-catch seasons (2015, 2017) and two 1,100-yard years (2015, 2016) on his resume.
In 2015, Landry set a then-career high with 110 catches, which he turned into 1,157 yards and four touchdowns and averaged a personal-best 72.3 yards per game. He followed that up with a 94-catch, 1,136-yard, four-touchdown showing in 2016.
Last season, the Metairie, Louisiana native and Louisiana State product caught a career-high 112 passes for 987 yards and a personal-best nine touchdown receptions.
In the first two years of his NFL career, Landry returned 47 kickoffs for 1,275 yards, including 35 20-yard returns and five 40-yard bursts. Additionally, Landry has returned at least 12 punts in each of his first four seasons in the NFL, amassing 804 yards and one score on 89 returns.
After receiving the franchise tag from the Dolphins earlier this week, Landry made it known that he did not want to sign the deal, but elected to put pen to paper shortly after the offer was made.
According to USA Today, the Browns are working on a multi-year contract extension for Landry.
