Veteran wide receiver’s production was solid in his first year with the Browns, but he still slid 32 places on annual list.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry had a solid first season with the Browns in 2018.

Landry finished the year with 81 receptions for 976 yards and four touchdowns, and while his receptions were the fewest in his five-year career, his 12 yards per reception just missed his career high of 12.1 yards per reception in 2016.

His efforts landed Landry at No. 84 on NFL.com’s list of the 100 best players for 2019:

Landry’s first season in Cleveland brought pretty similar production to his previous four in Miami. It was his fourth straight 950-plus yard season, his fifth straight 80-plus reception season and his fifth straight 110-plus target season. Not to mention he was able to do that with a quarterback combination of Tyrod Taylor (not known for his passing) and rookie Baker Mayfield (who played more like a veteran). Landry might not get as many targets now that his buddy Odell Beckham Jr. is in town, but he will benefit from not being the No. 1 wideout and another year of continuity with Mayfield.

Landry is the first member of the Browns to appear on the list, which is voted on by the league’s players, but he will likely not be the last. Expect to see defensive end Myles Garrett, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and, possibly, quarterback Baker Mayfield, running back Nick Chubb and defensive back Denzel Ward pop up before the final names are revealed on July 31.
