Jarvis Landry not quite guaranteed $47 million

Spotrac.com is reporting that Jarvis Landry's contract extension that was reported at 5 years with $75.5 million and $47 million in guarantees is essentially just a two-year deal with $34 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

It was previously thought that he got more guaranteed money than even Mike Evans, but that doesn't seem to be the case now. The Browns have an out if they were to release him prior to the deadline of March 2020, though they'd still take a $4.5 million cap hit by doing so. Whatever the case, it's unlikely that the Browns would release a player they clearly wanted enough to pay him $16 million under the franchise tag. Landry is going to be a big part of shaping their No. 1 pick, whether that be Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield, or Sam Darnold.

Jarvis Landry signs mega-extension

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Browns and Jarvis Landry have agreed on a contract extension over five years worth $75.5 million with $47 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

Landry was reportedly seeking around the $18 million per year mark, but I'm sure he'll take the massive pay-day. His contract has more guarantees than any other wide receiver in the league, including Mike Evans' $38.3 million that was just given to him not long ago. Needless to say, this was great work by Landry's agent. After averaging over 140 targets per year with the Dolphins, Landry's volume is going to drop with the Browns, who appear to be building a run-first team around Tyrod Taylor and Carlos Hyde in 2018. If they are, in-fact, drafting Josh Allen at No. 1 overall, Landry's skill-set doesn't exactly match his cannon arm. We're still expecting the Browns to take Sam Darnold with the No. 1 overall pick, which would be good news for Landry. Still, he's not likely to finish inside the top-20 fantasy receivers this year unless something drastically changes with their skill-position players.

Jarvis Landry to be traded to Browns

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Miami Dolphins have agreed to trade WR Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for two draft picks.

Fantasy Impact

The two picks include a 2018 selection and one in 2019. Acquiring Landry is not only a statement made by new GM John Dorsey that the Browns are ready to turn it around on the field, but it is also one that shows that the front office is also turning over a new leaf. Adding Landry to Josh Gordon, Corey Coleman and David Njoku makes Cleveland's corps of pass catchers one of the best in the league. And if they can land a reliable quarterback -- it wouldn't surprise me if they made a last effort push for Kirk Cousins, though AJ McCarron also makes sense -- as well as a notable running back -- they are expected to move on from Isaiah Crowell in free agency -- the Browns could emerge into a legitimate threat in the AFC North.

Jarvis Landry to sign franchise tag, hopes to accelerate trade

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry will sign his franchise tag.

Fantasy Impact

Landry is signing his franchise tag. However, he's signing it with the intent to accelerate a trade out of Miami, rather than remaining with the club, which at this point appears to be the unlikeliest of situations. Per reports, "several" teams view Landry as a WR1 -- Miami does not -- and will willing to pay-up to acquire him and lock him up long-term at a salary North of $16 million per year. With the Browns, Ravens, and 49ers amongst teams in the mix to land him, I'm expecting Landry to be on his way out of Miami by the upcoming NFL Draft. The 2017 league leader in receptions (112), Landry could be a machine with an upgrade at QB.

Jarvis Landry granted permission to seek trade

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Miami Dolphins have given recently-tagged Jarvis Landry and his agent permission to seek out a trade.

Fantasy Impact

It had been rumored that the Dolphins were planning this all along, giving him the franchise tag and trying to scrape away something rather than simply losing Landry to free agency. Landry's fantasy value hangs in the balance, as he's unlikely to walk into a situation where he'll see 160-plus targets like he did in two of the last three years with the Dolphins. Of the teams expected to show interest include the Bears, Ravens, Bills, and Saints. If they cannot find a suitor, the Dolphins will be forced to pay Landry the $16 million price tag associated with wide receivers.
