According to a source, WR Jarvis Landry's new deal with the Browns is scheduled to pay him $75.5 million over the next five years, with $34 million fully guaranteed at signing and $47 million in injury guarantees. That's an average of $15.1 million a year, which ranks fifth among current WR contracts, just ahead of Cincinnati's A.J. Green. Remember, he was already scheduled to make a fully guaranteed $15.982M on his franchise tag this year. So the "new money" average from 2019-22 is about $14.9M per year. Pushing the market for slot receivers way up.
