With the impending arrival in Cleveland of Dallas Cowboys' Amari Cooper, the Browns have reportedly given wide receiver Jarvis Landry permission to find a new team, although it is not certain that he will leave.

This story comes from NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, however, the same report states that if Landry wants to stay he will have to accept a lower salary in 2022, as he was slated for a $14.3 million payday.

At the end of his rookie contract, the Dolphins used the franchise player tag, but he requested a trade. Miami agreed and sent him to Cleveland in exchange for fourth- and seventh-round picks in the 2018 Draft.
His Pro Bowl status held up during his first two seasons, but starting in 2020, the focus of Cleveland's offense shifted to the ground attack and his numbers declined. After Landry's four seasons in Cleveland, the wide receiver amassed 3,560 yards and 15 touchdowns.
