Jarvis Landry believes Browns are playoff ready

 Newcomer and
three-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry Cleveland Browns
, the NFL’s reception leader in 2017, believes the Cleveland
Browns have the talent to reach the playoffs, something they haven’t done since
2002.“I know for sure that we are definitely a playoff-caliber team,” Landry
said during a recent phone interview with the Beacon Journal’s Nate Ulrich.For
sure.Definitely.This is a for sure bold proclamation, but it is not crazy
rhetoric by the new Cleveland Brown.One of the first keys to success is belief,
and Landry has it in spades.“[I]t’s great to have those type of aspirations for
yourself, for your team, and, honestly, for me, that’s how we’re supposed to
think Youth

,” Landry said.“That’s what
we’re supposed to believe, and the more that that mindset becomes the mindset of
the locker room, it’s going to help us get that much better.”There have also
been plenty of examples of NFL teams going from “worst to first.” Given the
amount of roster and management turnover from season to season, along with some
luck needed to find success, it is bound to happen every so often.Most notably,
and applicably, the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs went 11-5, nearly winning the AFC
West Division and reaching the playoffs just one year removed from winning only
two games.There is a common link to this year’s Browns, too. New general manager
John Dorsey joined the Chiefs before that resurgence, prompting them to four
playoff appearances in five years. Dorsey has categorically reshaped the Browns,
using the ammunition left over by departed executive Sashi Brown.Landry has been
to the playoffs. He knows what it takes. He is inside the Browns locker room and
sees exactly what we all see looking on from afar.The Browns have added Super
Bowl winning veterans like Jamie Collins and Mychael Kendricks. Haley is an
accomplished playcaller who will take a lot of the stress off Hue

allowing him to focus more on high level team management. Josh Gordon appears to
be on track for a colossal NFL comeback. The team’s quarterback position looks
to be in better shape than it has been in decades, with Tyrod Taylor steering
the ship until rookie Baker Mayfield is ready to take over.Think about the first
words that come to mind when contemplating what constitutes success. Mine are:
inertia, momentum, belief, hard work, and dedication.Everyone is talented who
reaches the NFL level. These players have reached the pinnacle of their sport,
they are the best of the best. But mindset and determination are what it takes
to push a group of these elite athletes to the greatest heights.“I want a
championship so bad, so, so bad, and that’s my mindset,” said Landry. “I know in
the offseason I train to win the Super Bowl every year. Now whether that happens
— it hasn’t happened yet — but that’s what I train for Cleveland Browns

, and that’s what my mindset is.“So I treat every
game as a championship game, and I think that that’s the next step for me in my
career — obviously, continue to grow as a player, but winning a championship,
and not just talking about it, actually pursuing it and doing the things
necessary to go get one.”No matter what the Browns do in 2018, Landry’s attitude
and approach to his craft is commendable. If it spreads, it is this type of
approach to the game that will enable this specific group of players to forget
the recent past and to change the franchise’s trajectory. After years, and years
of losing and disappointment, it appears that trajectory is finally
rising.Browns activate Desmond Harrison from PUP list The Cleveland Browns have
some reinforcements coming to the offensive line. Rookie left tackle Desmond
Harrison passed his physical and will be eligible to practice with the team when
the Browns return to practice on Sunday, according to multiple media
reports.Harrison Cleveland Browns
, an undrafted free agent out of West Georgia, had been
sidelined for the opening weeks of training camp with an injured toe.While the
left tackle position has been in a state of flux during training camp, with left
guard Joel Bitonio taking over for Shon Coleman last week, Harrison still has a
ways to go to be a viable NFL player. Harrison played two years at Contra Costa
Community College before transferring to Texas for the 2013 season. He lasted
just seven games before a pair of suspensions led him to leave the game entirely
for two years. He eventually landed at West Georgia in 2017, starting nine games
and earning first-team All-Gulf South Conference and first-team AFCA
All-American accolades.According to his draft profile at NFL.com, Harrison is
a:Despite the fact that he is raw, the Browns like the potential they see in
Harrison, as offensive line coach Bob Wylie said earlier this year, according to
published reports:While it is nice that he will be able to start practicing with
the team, Harrison appears to be a perfect candidate for a position on the
practice squad this fall.
