There is no love lost between Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry and Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Landry, who spent the first four years of his NFL career with the Dolphins organization, told NFL Network on Wednesday that he never had a good relationship with Tannehill.
“I’m not surprised. We didn’t really have a good relationship anyway, so I’m not surprised,” – said Landry when asked whether he heard back from Tannehill since being traded to the Browns.
It became apparent that Jarvis Landry isn’t Ryan Tannehill’s biggest fan last week when Landry said that Cleveland Browns’ QB situation is “a lot better than what I had in Miami.” Still, Landry insists that this wasn’t the case.
“I wasn’t trying to look back in the rearview mirror, you know.” – he explained. “I’m focused on here and where we’re taking it here. I wasn’t trying to take a shot at him. I understand how hard every guy in this NFL works, especially at the position, especially at the quarterback position. But at the same time too… I give credit where credit is due.”
Despite not being BFFs, Jarvis Landry and Ryan Tannehill had a good collaboration on the field. In three seasons (2014-2016) he played with Tannehill, Landry had 288 receptions, second-most in NFL in the same period. He also averaged 1,017 yards and close to 4.5 touchdowns per season. In 2017, when Tannehill was sidelined with torn ACL, Landry led the league in catches with 122 but averaged career-low 8.8 yards per reception.
With the Browns, Jarvis Landry will now be catching passes from Tyrod Taylor and/or Baker Mayfield, while Dolphins acquired WR duo Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson to pair with Ryan Tannehill.
