Jarvis Landry responded to reports that he is trying to get out of Cleveland and join the Arizona Cardinals. The original reports said that Landry told the Cardinals sideline during Sunday’s game “come get me” but the former Miami Dolphin is denying that claim.
“I would never look to another team during a game especially that we’re losing and say come get me…” Landry told reporters. “Don’t try to slander my name. If you didn’t hear me say it directly you shouldn’t have to be able to report it.”
Landry’s current teammate and former LSU teammate Odell Beckham Jr. also shot down reports of wanting out of Cleveland in what has been a lackluster season. There have been conflicting reports on whether or not Beckham Jr. told the Pittsburgh Steelers the same “come get me” phrase, but Beckham acknowledged that it’s just been a tough season and is not thinking about offseason moves.
Beckham is poised for career lows in catches, touchdowns and receiving yards in a season that he’s played at least 12 games. Despite the poor performance from the team, Jarvis Landry has been selected for the 2020 Pro Bowl along with Browns RB Nick Chubb.
