Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry and the biggest offseason Browns signing in at least a decade, has gone on record as being someone who isn’t down for the B.S. with this HBO Hard Knocks rousing speech.
Jarvis Landry on HBO Hard Knocks – Cleveland Browns player calls out players for faking injuries.
The speech, aimed at returning Brown players who may still be infected by prior poor habits, may or may not have had something to do with a series of scuffles that happened over the past week.
Landry took exception to cornerback Terrance Mitchell stepping over him after a completion and promptly fired the ball at his teammate’s helmet.
The two proceeded to exchange blows before taking things to the turf:
Jarvis Landry and Terrance Mitchell had an altercation today… #Browns #DawgPound #3Browns @wkyc https://t.co/M95Ap43DL4
Terrence Mitchell, who picked off 4 passes for the Kansas City Chiefs, got the worst of it from Jarvis in a smackdown that was one of three that occurred that day. Hopefully, that chippy competitiveness will translate into wins this season.
Cleveland went 1-31 the past two seasons and horrendous quarterback play heavily contributed to Hue Jackson’s squad’s futility. Cleveland had its pick of every player in the Draft and several quarterbacks who were touted as future stars and they picked Baker Mayfield, an undersized gunslinger with questionable character.
According to 92.3 The Fan’s Daryl Ruiter, that scuffle was one of three. The first pitted wide receiver Jeff Janis against defensive back Jeremiah McKinnon, while the second featured linebacker Brady Sheldon and cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun.
“Those thingsthis is football,” head coach Hue Jackson said, per 92.3 The Fan’s Keith Britton. “It’s not something we want, but it’s gonna happen. We’re men.”
