Texas A&M University-Commerce wide receiver Darrion Landry joined teammate Michael Onuoha as a Lion with a shot at a professional football career after signing with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Landry, a 6'3", 200-pound senior from Baytown, Texas, announced the occasion on Twitter, saying "God is so [d***] good ! Thank you to the Cleveland @Browns for the opportunity, it’s time to get back to work #ChipOnMyShoulder."
Landry had limited playing time last season, appearing in eight of the team's 12 games and catching seven passes for 66 yards. In his first season after transferring from Blinn College in 2017, he was a second-team All-Lone Star Conference selection, catching 42 passes for 649 yards and nine scores, the latter being good enough for fifth in the LSC.
Former A&M-Commerce Head Coach Colby Carthel congratulated Landry on Twitter, saying "Another former @Lions_FB player getting an opportunity in the @NFL! Best of luck @Landry3D! #ToTheTop."
Landry will be trying to make a Browns squad that has become one of the hotter destinations in football after the team's turnaround season last year. Cleveland rebounded to a 7-8-1 record after going 1-31 the previous two seasons combined. Quarterback Baker Mayfield is entering his second year in the league, and was a finalist for the NFL Rookie of the Year award.
