The Browns are also reportedly working on a new contract for Landry.

Instead, he was traded to the Cleveland Browns for two draft picks Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Exact terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.

Landry, 25, has 400 catches in his first four National Football League seasons to go with 4,038 receiving yards and 22 receiving touchdowns.


The Browns might not know who their quarterback will bet yet, but they now have added a three-time Pro Bowler who can add some juice to a unit that needed help. The Browns surely will address their quarterback room via free agency and/or the draft, but they first intend to give Landry the type of multi-year contract he'd always been seeking in Miami, per Schefter.

The Browns are expected to try and agree a long-term contract with Landry, who signed a one-year $15.98m franchise tender with the Dolphins earlier this week. As a group, the team's receivers had seven touchdowns in 2017; Landry had nine.

Landry's apparent departure depletes Miami's receiving crew greatly, leaving the bulk of the work, for now, to wide receivers Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker.

The Browns, coming off an 0-16 season, should show dramatic improvement on offense. And since the Browns still have more cap space than anyone else, they're probably going to shop some more in free agency. Running back Duke Johnson finished as the club's leading receiver. Since winning the Super Bowl after the 2012 season, the Ravens have signed these free-agent wide receivers: Jacoby Jones (four years, $12 million), Brandon Stokley (one year, $940,000), Steve Smith Sr.
