Jarvis Landry burns the Dolphins and explains why he's excited to play with the Browns in 2018

Back in March, the Miami Dolphins traded Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns in return for a 2018 fourth - and 2019 seventh-round draft pick. 

The trade signaled the end of Landry's four seasons with Miami - and it's fair to say they weren't the most successful years.

Despite playing every game of each season - and starting them all in the last two years - the wide reciever never really got a good taste of success. 

STRUGGLING FOR CONSISTENCY

The Dolphins best season came in 2016 - when they finished with a record of 10-6. But after only finishing second in the AFC East, their journey ended in the wildcard round of the playoffs. 

That year was the only time Landry and his team finished with a positive record. But according to the man himself - there may have been a reason for that. 

BURNING HIS FORMER TEAM

Speaking recently to the NFL.com’s Marc Sessler, Landry explained the problems that he faced while in Miami - and it's to do with their quarterbacks. 

The 25-year-old explained that he believes that QB play is very important - and suggested that he's much more excited about the Browns prospects, compared to his former team, when it comes to that position. 

“The quarterback play is so important, which has got me that much more excited about Tyrod (Taylor) and (first-rounder Baker Mayfield)," Landry said, per The Big Lead

"The way that they’re throwing the ball out here, it makes me that much more excited. It’s a lot better than what I had in Miami. I’m excited about that."

FIRING SHOTS

Brutal. Although Landry didn't name any names - it's probably fair to guess that he was talking about Ryan Tannehill. 

He was throwing for three of the four seasons that Landry spent in Miami - with exception to 2017 - when Tannehill missed the entire campaign.

The 29-year-old tore his ACL and required season-ending surgery before throwing a single ball. He was replaced by Jay Cutler for the year. 

LOOKING FORWARD

As well as burning the Dolphins, Landry is clearly looking forward to what's in store with the Browns. 

After drafting Mayfield as the first overall pick of the draft, things could certainly be looking up in Cleveland.

And after finishing the 2017 season with a record of 0-16, really, things can only get better.

Especially as they've made a statement of improving the offense by trading Landry and drafting one of the most promising quarterbacks in recent history.
