According to multiple reports, the Cleveland Browns are acquiring Pro Bowl WR Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins.

The deal can not become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday March 14th.

I know many fans of the Baltimore Ravens were firmly in the Jarvis Landry camp. In a ideal world, a top three of Landry, Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman could be a strong situation at wideout. He signed the franchise tag with the Dolphins this offseason, and is expected to earn a large contract extension from Cleveland, according to Schefter. But the Dolphins did not want to commit to Landry long-term because he was seeking a contract in the neighborhood of $14 million a season.

The 25-year-old was picked by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be coming off another knee injury and the Dolphins could be in play for a quarterback in the first round. Cleveland owns both the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks in this year's draft, and their comfortable salary cap situation will allow the team to make a big splash in free agency.

Landry now heads to a team that has won one game in the last two seasons and went 0-16 in 2017. With so much extra money, Cleveland can afford to cave into whatever financial demands Landry has. He also had 987 receiving yards and nine touchdown catches.
