The New Orleans Saints shook things up on Friday by signing Jarvis Landry to join the offense in 2022. After the team had a rough go of it at the wide receiver position last season, that is no longer the situation in the Big Easy.
Landry, who played his college ball at LSU, spent four years with the Dolphins and then four years with the Browns before Cleveland released him this offseason. It always felt like the Saints were a frontrunner to land him and now it’s official — He’s coming back to Louisiana.
With the addition, the Saints are now armed with Landry, Michael Thomas, and Chris Olave at wide receiver, giving them a highly impressive wide receiver room. Not to mention that Marquez Callaway as the WR4 is no slouch.

With this move, NOLA also showed that they’re going for it in 2022. They might not be a top contender in the NFC but the conference is weak and they could easily get into the playoffs as a wild card. Heck, they might even be able to give Tampa Bay a run for their money for the NFC South division title.
Through 12 games in Cleveland last year, Landry had 52 receptions for 570 yards and two touchdowns. The year before he totaled 840 yards and three touchdowns. He’s going to be another explosive weapon for Jameis Winston and the Saints offense.
Entering the offseason, the Saints had Thomas, Callaway, and Tre’Quan Smith as their three starting wideouts. Now, they’ll roll with Thomas, Landry, and Olave, giving them a terrifying trio for opposing defenses to have to focus on.
This is an excellent move by the Saints and props to Dennis Allen and the front office for continuing to be aggressive. They got Tyrann Mathieu after being patient and waiting for things to fall their way and now the same has happened with Landry.
