Saints’ Player No. 3: Jarvis Landry

The wide receiver market blew up this offseason and will likely only inflate in the future, which is why the Jarvis Landry deal looks so good in retrospect.

The Saints signed Landry to a one-year contract with a base value of $3 million, but Landry can earn another $3 million in incentives.

Landry was reportedly looking for as much as $20 million earlier this offseason, but after meeting with Mickey Loomis and the Saints he agreed to join for a more reasonable salary.

The 29-year-old put together three 1,000-plus yard receiving seasons in his career but had a down year on the Cleveland Browns in 2021, which is why New Orleans was only willing to give him a prove-it deal.
