Miami Dolphins trade former LSU standout Jarvis Landry to Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns reportedly will be sending two draft picks to the Miami Dolphins in a trade for wide receiver Jarvis Landry, according to multiple reports.

He has been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and has 400 career receptions, a record for a fourth-year player.

He's set to make $16 million next season, which is the final year of his deal. But the parties have been unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal, and Landry's volatile personality has become a cause for concern in Miami.

Last season he established a franchise record with 112 receptions, which also led the National Football League, and 987 yards and a career-best 10 touchdowns. Despite leading the league in catches, he finished with the 17th-most receiving yards (987), which means he averaged only 8.8 yards per catch. His 1,575 rushing yards are also the most in franchise history among quarterbacks.

Landry typically plays slot receiver, and the Browns have been disappointed with the production of former first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, who has been injured the past two seasons.

With 12 picks in this year's draft, including the Nos. It had been expected that the Browns would be interested in Cincinnati's AJ McCarron, but it's not likely McCarron will sign with a team that has Taylor. Running back Kenyan Drake is also an adept receiver out of the backfield.

Without enough players to spread out defenses, the Browns were too often one-dimensional, and their lack of options made life more hard for rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer.

The Cleveland Browns are not messing around on this here Friday.
