3. Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry

Landry’s rushing touchdown was mentioned earlier. It was a great play call and executed to perfection. Alas, it took a gadget play to get it done.

Landry makes the list because his impact as a pass catcher is the worst it’s ever been during his time on the Cleveland Browns.

Against the Lions, Landry had four catches for 26 yards (6.5 average). It’s the fourth time this season he’s averaged fewer than 8.0 yards per catch. For the season, he’s averaging 9.1 yards per reception, his lowest since his final season in Miami in 2017 (8.8), and we know how that ended.

The Browns offense is a hot mess, and Landry is battling a knee injury that he seemingly aggravates every game.

The 28-year-old is under contract for $14 million next season. It always seemed that either he or Odell Beckham would be gone by 2022. Now, with Beckham gone, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Browns save some money and part ways with Landry as well with the team turning their attention to receiver in the draft.
