1. Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry

We haven’t seen Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry in a game, but the veteran reminded us all of how valuable he can be to the offense against the Giants.

A big emphasis is being placed on these joint practices, as holding them is the “In-thing” to do. That’s why it was critical for Landry to answer the bell.

As The Athletic’s Zac Jackson put it, Baker Mayfield pinpointed Landry as if he was always going to be open.

He was brilliant on day one, exhibiting a catch and spin that extended a drive. Also evident was his route running ability. To do it as precise as he can, well, it comes with years and year and practice, and Landry’s a pro in ever sense of the world.

Day 1 was probably his best outing, but he was pretty good on the second day, as well.

You think back to that 2018 season when the Browns were on “Hard Knocks.” Landry lectured his fellow wideouts about practicing and being ready to play. At first, it was chalked up by some pundits to Landry getting camera time.

Now, we know this isn’t true. The culture of the wide receivers room has changed, and it started when Landry got here.
