NFL free agency is underway and the Atlanta Falcons are in the receiver market.
One player who could be the upgrade the Falcons are looking for is five-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry. …who was reported as a visitor from Atlanta over a week ago…
And now made a change.
Landry, 29, was cut by the Cleveland Browns after four seasons with the team. Landry is ready to make room for new acquisition Amari Cooper, who the team traded for the Dallas Cowboys.
And of course, the Browns also made room for Deshaun Watson – who would have recruited Landry to join him had the QB landed in Atlanta.

Landry is about to enter his ninth season in the NFL and will seek his third NFL city. The Falcons have the ability to make a home for Landry after it was announced last week that Calvin Ridley would be suspended for the entire 2022 season.
The Falcons were already in the receiver market before Ridley was suspended, but now the team is desperate.
Landry is already linked to other teams like the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills, but joining the Falcons – where Matt Ryan has been replaced by Marcus Mariota at QB – would allow Landry to start and make an impact. A visit is part of this process. …and apparently a change in representation is too.
Last season in Cleveland, Landry struggled, playing just 12 games and catching a career-best 52 passes for 570 yards and two touchdowns.
