Jarvis Landry is looking for a new home in NFL

Five-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry was one of the best wideouts in the league in his heyday, and at the moment, he is a free agent after being released by the New Orleans Saints.

Landry holds a unique record by leading the league in receptions in 2017, with 112. His 564 career receptions are the most by a player through their first six seasons in NFL. Any team that gets him knows they will be getting a proven veteran at his craft, even if he isn't at the peak of his powers anymore.

Here are three of the best potential landing spots for Jarvis Landry ahead of the 2023 NFL season.

#3 Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys have some familiar names like CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Jalen Tolbert, and KaVontae Turpin under contract. But they all have the pedigree of Jarvis Landry.

The Cowboys have been different since trading away Amari Cooper for pennies on the dollar, which seems more shocking by the day.

CeeDee Lamb is a unique pass catcher, but he needs help if he's going to fulfil his elite potential. Jarvis Landry could provide that help, and then some as a member of America's team. Moreover, signing a player of Landry's ilk has Jerry Jones' signature written all over it.

#2 Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson

Another year, another off-season of Lamar Jackson needing elite comprehensive receiver options at the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens keep depriving their former league MVP of getting elite pass catchers, and it's getting more suspect these days. The Ravens have the likes of Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche, but these players could be better than 30-year-old Jarvis Landry. It says a lot about the Ravens' player recruitment more than anything else.

Bateman has the talent to be a number-one wideout if healthy. But he has missed 16 games in his first two seasons, so the jury remains out. Having Landry as insurance is a good idea.

#1 Atlanta Falcons

Drake London is the only receiver in Atlanta under contract who had more than a single catch last season. Even accounting for tight end Kyle Pitts, who operates more like a wideout, Atlanta desperately needs to add playmakers this offseason. Fortunately for the Falcons, they have a ton of available cap space.

Why not add a player like Landry to perform the dual role of WR2 and playmaking mentor. Moreover, the Falcons could get a pass catcher via the upcoming Draft for good measure. Adding Landry would be a welcome one for A-town, as it has been a while since they last had a multiple Pro Bowler receiver.
