Five-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry to join Jaguars rookie camp

Five-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry is trying to return to the league after sitting out last season.

Landry, 31, will participate in Jacksonville’s rookie minicamp on May 10-11, a chance to prove he’s fully healthy after a nagging ankle injury in 2022.

Landry played nine seasons in the NFL, including four in Miami and four in Cleveland. He signed a one-year deal worth $3 million with his hometown New Orleans Saints in 2022, but finished with 25 receptions for 272 yards and a touchdown — all career lows. in career. He missed eight games and landed on injured reserve in December.

“I don’t have a price tag, I just want the opportunity to EARN my value on a team that recognizes that and wants to win a CHAMPIONSHIP!!!” Landry posted on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, last month.

He has since posted workout videos showing him running routes and catching passes.

Landry has 713 career catches for 7,870 yards and 38 touchdowns. He made five consecutive Pro Bowls starting in 2015, the first three with the Dolphins and the last two with the Browns.

If the Jaguars decide to sign him, he would give them another veteran in a receiving corps that includes Christian Kirk and free agent Gabe Davis.

Jacksonville selected LSU’s Brian Thomas Jr. with the 23rd pick in last week’s NFL draft. Landry also played at LSU and is one of several notable pros on the Southeastern Conference powerhouse, a roster dominated by Odell Beckham Jr., Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson.

Landry could be a potential upgrade over Zay Jones, who missed eight games last season with hamstring and knee injuries. Jones is expected to count $10.7 million against the team’s salary cap in 2024, a significant payment for a guy who should be a No. 4 receiver at best.
