NFL receiver Jarvis Landry was not on the roster for the 2023 season, but that doesn’t mean he is ready to finish his career. Previously, the five-time Pro Bowler spent four seasons each with the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns. He did suit up for the New Orleans Saints in 2022 but played only nine games due to injury and was released at the end of the season. Despite being away from the game for a year, Landry is now expected to participate in the Jacksonville Jaguars rookie off-season minicamp.

His time at the minicamp will set expectations for the Jaguars and if they want to sign him to a deal and commit to him financially. Though nothing is guaranteed, Landry has a proven track record would be an excellent use for a Jacksonville team with a light receiver room. They signed Gabe Davis over the offseason, selected LSU’s Brian Thomas Jr. in the most recent draft, and have Devin Duvernay, Christian Kirk and Zay Jones under contract. Landry’s career numbers dwarf the numbers of the other receivers currently on the roster and could potentially provide a big target for quarterback Trevor Lawrence next year.

Landry’s last Pro Bowl season came in 2019 with the Browns, finishing the year with 83 catches for 1,174 yards and six touchdowns. He had a successful stint in Cleveland, but the team eventually prioritized receiver Amari Cooper over Landry, resulting in his one year with the Saints and subsequent season sitting out. In 132 career games, Landry has 713 receptions for 7,870 yards and 38 touchdowns. From 2014 to 2021, Landry was fourth in the NFL in receptions and ninth in total receiving yards.

The 31-year-old Landry did have a workout with the Indianapolis Colts in December 2023, but it did not lead to a spot on the roster. Now, he is trying again with the Jaguars, and even if it doesn’t lead to a contract, it will at least show other teams he is still willing to compete.
