In addition to the weather forecast, the other top storyline for the Cleveland Browns on Saturday when they host the New Orleans Saints is the return of Jarvis Landry.
Landry was beloved by fans and players during his four seasons in Cleveland (from 2018-2021).
He is ranked 15th all-time in franchise history with 3,560 receiving yards.
In advance of the reunion, Nick Chubb talked recently about the impact Landry had on the Browns teams during those years.
What Nick Chubb Said
When asked if things would be different if Landry was with the 2022 Browns team, without hesitation Chubb said:
“For sure. Definitely, if we had Jarvis here, it would be amazing. Great teammate. I think he had a big impact on the culture around here.”

Landry’s emotional speech to his teammates in the 2018 Hard Knocks docuseries is forever etched in Browns fans’ minds.
Jarvis Landry took over the 1st episode of "Hard Knocks." Powerful to see him call out receivers in a meeting for not practicing with minor injuries, saying that bleep's contagious and isn't happening any more with the Browns. He's a reason they'll be NFL's most improved team.
