The Browns placed him on injured reserve two days later.


Apr 17 2018 - Tyrod Taylor
  QB Tyrod Taylor already has been anointed the starter of the Cleveland Browns and is eager to take on the challenge of turning around a team that went winless last season. Browns coach Hue Jackson designated Jackson as his starter Tuesday, even though the club is expected to pick a high-profile quarterback with either the No. 1 or 4 selection in this year's NFL Draft. "I welcome that, it definitely has to come from the quarterback position," Taylor told the team's official website. "I'm looking forward to leading the guys here."

The extension includes $47 million guaranteed for Landry, according to NFL Network. Landry was acquired by the Browns in a trade last month with the Miami Dolphins. Cleveland sent a fourth-round pick (123rd overall) in 2018 NFL Draft and a seventh-round selection in 2019 to Miami. "I'm excited for the journey with my new teammates and building, one day at a time, starting with the offseason program on Monday," Landry said in a statement. "Let's be great Cleveland." A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Landry led the league in receptions with 112 last season. By comparison, the sum total of Browns receivers recorded just 134 -- with Rashard Higgins and Ricardo Louis each grabbing 27.


Apr 12 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry and the Cleveland Browns are finalizing a five-year contract extension worth $75.5 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday. Rapoport reported that the extension is set to include $47 million guaranteed for Landry, who was acquired by the Browns in a trade last month with the Miami Dolphins. Cleveland sent a fourth-round pick (123rd overall) in 2018 NFL Draft and a seventh-round selection in 2019 to Miami.

The 26-year-old has just 17 receptions for 200 yards and one touchdown in 51 career contests over four seasons with the Green Bay Packers, who selected him with a seventh-round pick in 2014. Janis also collected 22 special-teams tackles and averaged 24.7 yards per kickoff return.


Mar 23 2018 - E.J. Gaines

  RB Isaiah Crowell has reached agreement on a contract with the New York Jets, multiple outlets reported Tuesday. The deal for Crowell, who spent his first four seasons with the Cleveland Browns, is for three years.

Mar 9 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry was traded by the Miami Dolphins to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for draft choices, multiple media outlets reported Friday. The Dolphins will receive a 2018 draft pick and a 2019 draft selection, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, although the round of those picks remains unclear. The Browns are planning to negotiate a long-term deal that could make Landry one of highest-paid wide receivers in the league. The Browns have more than $113 million in salary-cap space available.


Mar 8 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry officially has signed his franchise tender, multiple outlets reported on Thursday. Landry was franchised by the Dolphins last month and can now be traded as early as Wednesday, which is when the league's new year begins. No such deal is close, per the Miami Herald, although the Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears reportedly expressed interest in trading for Landry.


Mar 3 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry, who has said "the franchise tag is not a good deal for me," has informed the Miami Dolphins that he will sign the franchise tag that was placed on him last month, according to multiple reports. Once Landry signs, he can be traded. Based on reported trade talks with various teams, Landry is being viewed as a No. 1 wide receiver target. By signing the tag, it guarantees him about $16.2 million in compensation for 2018. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Dolphins granted Landry and his representatives permission to pursue and facilitate a trade. It would cost another team two first-round draft picks for the right to sign him. Landry was not keen on signing the franchise tag in earlier media reports. He reportedly planned to hold out while he bid for a long-term contract. "The team decides to exercise the franchise tag. I'm considering not playing on it," Landry said to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "The franchise tag is not a good deal for me."


Mar 3 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  The Chicago Bears could be a potential trade destination for disgruntled Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry, according to a published report. The teams have had talks about a trade centered on Landry and Bears starting running back Jordan Howard, NBC Sports Chicago reported Saturday, citing sources. Last week, Miami placed the franchise tag on Landry, who is balking at the idea of playing under those conditions and instead is seeking a long-term deal. The website reported that the teams also would exchange first-round draft selections -- Chicago owns the No. 8 pick while Miami is at No. 11 -- and the Bears also would receive a third-round selection. However, profootballtalk.com quoted a league source that said there was "no way" such a trade would be completed. The 25-year-old Landry led the league in receptions (112) and amassed 987 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns last season. His 400 receptions are the most for any player in his first four NFL seasons.


Mar 3 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry plans to hold out as he bids for a long-term contract. "The team decides to exercise the franchise tag. I'm considering not playing on it," Landry said in a 10-minute teaser of a documentary called Juice, via the Sun-Sentinel. "The franchise tag is not a good deal for me." The Dolphins placed the franchise tag on Landry last week, with the receiver tag expected to cost $16.2 million on a one-year deal. They have offered the three-time Pro Bowl selection a long-term deal with an average of $13 million per season, according to the newspaper.


Mar 2 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry and his representative have been granted permission by the Dolphins to seek and facilitate a trade, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, citing sources. Miami placed the franchise tag on Landry last week. The tag will pay Landry approximately $16 million and is non-exclusive, which means he can negotiate with other teams. It would cost another team two first-round draft picks for the right to sign him. Landry led the league in receptions (112) and amassed 987 yards and nine touchdowns last season.


Mar 1 2018 - Josh Gordon
  WR Josh Gordon returned to the Browns for the final five games of the 2017 season after sitting out the previous two seasons following multiple suspensions for repeated violations of the league's substance-abuse policy. Now Browns coach Hue Jackson is eager to see what wide receiver Josh Gordon can do over a full season -- and possibly well beyond that. "Josh has been great. Josh has been outstanding," Jackson told the Akron Beacon-Journal at Thursday's NFL Combine. "He's having a really good offseason. Obviously, he's got to continue to do so and continue to do the right things, but I truly believe that Josh Gordon is going to have a great year for us." Gordon is an exclusive-rights free agent, meaning Cleveland can offer him the second-year minimum salary for a player with two years of service. So his only options are to sign with the Browns or not play at all.


Feb 21 2018 - Josh Gordon
  WR Josh Gordon of the Cleveland Browns will be an exclusive-rights free agent. Pro Football Report said the NFLPA initially stated on Wednesday that Gordon will be a restricted free agent. That would be because he completed his rookie contract, but has not completed four years of service under the NFL's labor deal. However, Gordon played in only five games during the 2017 season, so he did not play in enough games to have a third accrued season toward free agency. As a result, the NFLPA clarified its statement to say Gordon becomes an exclusive-rights free agent instead of a restricted free agent. As an exclusive-rights free agent, Gordon has few options. The Browns can offer him the second-year minimum salary for a player with two years of service. Gordon's only choice would be to sign with the Browns or not play at all. In 2013, Gordon led the league with 1,646 receiving yards in only 14 games. But Gordon didn't play in 2015 or 2016 due to suspensions under the league's substance-abuse policy. He was reinstated in 2017 and played five games for the Browns, all as a starter, and had 18 receptions for 335 yards and one touchdown.


Feb 20 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry had the Dolphins' franchise tag placed on him. Landry topped the NFL with a team-record 112 receptions for 987 yards (8.8 avg.) and a career-high nine receiving touchdowns last season. The three-time Pro Bowler has totaled 400 receptions for 4,038 yards (10.1 avg.) and 22 touchdown catches for his career. His 400 receptions are the most for any player in his first four NFL seasons.


Feb 3 2018 - Tyrod Taylor
  Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor does not seem willing to do restructure his contract again this year. A year ago, Taylor was set to make $30.75 million guaranteed in 2017 but agreed to a restructured deal that lowered his income as new head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane tried to keep Taylor while having enough money to improve the Bills' roster. Taylor again enters the offseason with questions about his contract. This time around, he is not likely to make the same contract concessions. "Definitely not part of my mindset," Taylor said, according to the Buffalo News. "I've done that before. I don't think there's a need to do that again. That's definitely not part of my mindset." According to Spotrac, the Bills would save about $10 million against the salary cap by releasing Taylor this offseason, and they could save $15 million if they designate him for a release after June 1. But the Bills have few options at quarterback. "Until I'm told otherwise, I'm a Buffalo Bill," Taylor said on NFL Total Access.


Jan 25 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry told reporters on Thursday that his contract negotiations are progressing, albeit slowly. The pace actually is an improvement, as Landry told the Miami Herald last week that he hadn't heard from the team since his counteroffer to the club in the middle of December. The 25-year-old Landry even went so far as to label the team's process as "disrespectful" at the time. "They're moving. They're moving slowly, but they're moving," Landry said after practice ahead of the Pro Bowl.


Jan 17 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry isn't pleased with playing the waiting game in regard to contract talks with the Miami Dolphins. "From the offer process until this point was disrespectful," Landry told the Miami Herald. "I tried to handle it the right way and figured if a team values you and wants you to be a part of the team, why haven't they answered in the past month?"


Jan 16 2018 - Joe Schobert
  LB Joe Schobert will be th Browns' lone representative in the upcoming Pro Bowl. Schobert, who was initially tabbed as a first alternate, was added to the AFC roster on Tuesday in place of Ryan Shazier. The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker sustained a season-ending spinal injury in December. The 24-year-old Schobert tied Buffalo Bills linebacker Preston Brown and Green Bay Packers linebacker Blake Martinez for the NFL lead in tackles with 144.


Jan 10 2018 - Tyrod Taylor
  QB Tyrod Taylor had a disappointing season and might have played his last game for the Bills, but head coach Sean McDermott said three days after the season that no decisions have been made. "It's early in the process right now," McDermott said. "I'm not going to get into speculation and that's what that is, speculation on coaches, players, and their futures as Buffalo Bills. Brandon (Beane) and I communicate on a lot of things and evaluations are a part of that, and the reason we do that is we're building this thing together. We're aligned philosophically on how we believe it should look and how the building process should take shape."


Jan 9 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry was named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday as an injury replacement for Houston's DeAndre Hopkins. Landry led the NFL with a career-high 112 receptions but came up 13 yards shy of reaching 1,000 for the third consecutive season. It marked the third straight Pro Bowl selection for Landry, who has 400 receptions in his four seasons. A calf injury forced Hopkins to sit out the regular-season finale.


Jan 8 2018 - Tyrod Taylor
  QB Tyrod Taylor had a rough day, completing only 17-of-37 passes for 134 yards with one interception. He was knocked out of the game when his head slammed to the ground at the end of a run in the final minute. He was in concussion protocol and did not speak to the media Sunday or Monday.


Jan 5 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry was fined $48,620 apiece by the NFL for his actions in Sunday's game against Buffalo. Landry was ejected for his part in a fight during Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Earlier this week, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Landry's actions were "embarrassing," and said it would be a consideration when deciding whether to re-sign Landry.


Jan 4 2018 - Jarvis Landry
  WR Jarvis Landry's actions this past weekend did not please coach Adam Gase. "I don't think I've ever seen it get to a level where it was extremely bad," Gase said, via ESPN. "But the last game was about as embarrassing as I've seen in a long time. It was something we can't have happen."

Jan 3 2018 - DeShone Kizer
