Happy April Fool’s Day, Cleveland Browns fans!
First and foremost, it is April Fool’s Day so #Browns Twitter could be full of tweets that may sound great (or horrible) but are in reality April Fool’s jokes!
Your annual reminder. Today is April 1st. Don’t get got! Don’t be a fool.

Here is the Friday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.
1. The Latest On Landry
Since his release from the Browns, Jarvis Landry has been radio silent.
On Thursday, he posted a tweet that is really difficult to interpret.
It reads as follows:
“If you give yourself a way out In a hard situation because failing seems like the only outcome. Then the percentage of success will grow further and further away!! It’s not suppose to always feel easy or comfortable, lean into that and learn about yourself, grow, adapt and WIN.”

Dave @BIGPLAY had a great response to Landry.
I read this as you are returning to the #Browns please like to confirm.

“I read this as you are returning to the #Browns please like to confirm.”
It’s difficult to say if Dave is correct or what Landry is getting at in his post.
Last week, Bleacher Report’s Brent Sobleski reported that Landry is seeking a $20 million annual payday which he has yet to get from any NFL team.
"[Jarvis] Landry, we’re told, had hoped to get a contract in the range of $20 million per year. Nearly two weeks into free agency, it won’t be easy to find that kind of money."
Cleveland released him because his performance didn't warrant a a $16 million salary-cap hit.

During the coach’s breakfast at the NFL annual meeting, Coach Stefanski was asked about Landry.
He had glowing remarks about him and concluded by saying:
“We’ve got to let it all play out.”
