After spending a year out of the NFL, five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry is making an attempt to resurrect his football career. Landry is currently at the Jacksonville Jaguars’ rookie minicamp in hopes of convincing the franchise to offer him a deal.

Landry last played in the NFL in 2022, spending the season with the New Orleans Saints. He played in nine games, catching a career-low 25 passes for 272 yards and a touchdown.

Speaking with reporters on Friday, Landry said that he doesn’t want to end his career on a such disappointing note.

“The competitor in me says no,” Landry said. “But again, whatever. Whatever’s in God’s hands, in his cards, I just kind of rock with that.”

Landry explained that he was hampered by an ankle injury in 2022 and purposely sat out the last season in order to get fully healthy.

“I’ve got some cleanup things to do obviously, but for the most part I felt pretty good,” he added. “Caught the ball well, so I feel good.”

Jarvis Landry entered the league in 2014 as a second-round pick by the Miami Dolphins and quickly established himself as one of the most reliable wideouts in the league. Landry spent four years in Miami and earned three Pro Bowl nods before being traded to the Cleveland Browns. He had a four-year stint with the Browns as well, earning two Pro Bowl selections while in Cleveland.

Landry has 713 career receptions for 7,870 yards and 38 touchdowns as a pro.
