New Orleans Saints need to sign Jarvis Landry ASAP
By Jonny Camer
The New Orleans Saints have tried and failed to find a receiver to pair next to Michael Thomas. The perfect fit would be Jarvis Landry for more reasons than one.
Landry provides a strong veteran presence with years of consistency under his belt. With five Pro Bowls and multiple 1,000-yard seasons, Landry has established himself as one of the better receivers in this league.
Landry still has plenty left in the tank, despite coming off a career-worst year in Cleveland. We saw what his former teammate Odell Beckham Jr. did after leaving the Browns, and Landry could do the same.
Jarvis Landry would be a perfect fit for the New Orleans Saints.
The savvy slot receiver would be perfect next to Thomas. With precise route-running and quick hands, Landry has made a career being a slot merchant and this is exactly what New Orleans needs. He’s a slot beast who can take some of the pressure off of Thomas.
Finding the right contract for Landry could be difficult though. With the wide receiver frenzy, this offseason the market has been shaken up. Landry might land a short-term deal if he comes to New Orleans, as he is on the older side, but this is beneficial for both sides. If the fit doesn’t work out the team and Landry can both move on to different things.
According to Spotrac, Landry has a current market value of $12 million per year. If the team could get him for a two-year $24 million deal that would be very beneficial for both sides.

The team needs to get a number two wide receiver whether it’s Landry or not. However, Landry would be a really solid fit. Landry is a guy that can take this offense to the next level and the team needs to pounce if they want to compete next season.
