The Indianapolis Colts need a wide receiver as they have lost Michael Pittman, Jr. due to a concussion and Isaiah McKenzie due to a suspension.

The team must now rely on Josh Downs, Alec Pierce, and DJ Montgomery for the position. Unsurprisingly, the team worked out a group of wide receivers, leading to Jaydon Mickens’s signing. Surprisingly, one of the receivers who worked out was five-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry. As per ESPN’s Field Yates, Landry was among the players who tried out for Indianapolis on Tuesday.

Landry, formerly of the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns, was one of the NFL’s most productive receivers from 2015-2019. He averaged 96 receptions, 1,086 receiving yards, and more than five touchdowns per season in that span. The 2020 and 2021 seasons were more of a struggle. He caught 72 passes for 840 yards with three touchdowns in 2020. In 2021, he caught 52 passes for 570 yards with two touchdown receptions, setting career lows in all three categories.

In 2022, the 31-year-old Landry played nine games with the New Orleans Saints. He started last season with a seven-reception, 114-yard performance in Week 1 but would finish the season with just 25 catches for 272 yards and one touchdown, as he was hobbled by an ankle injury that saw him land on injured reserve.

It remains to be seen if Landry eventually returns to the NFL, but notably, he worked out for the Colts on Tuesday.
