Former LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry has been showing all throughout training camp and the first two preseason games that he has a lot of talent, and should not be taken out of the running for the slot receiver job.
“Coach got me in the rotation, he’s got me in the rotation with Gibson, doing some other stuff at the tight end position, and also in the return game,” Landry said. “I’m excited about it.”
Besides his talent has been his attitude, his extreme determination to be great with just a hint of a temper that drives him to become even better when he's mad. An example of this temper appeared earlier today during practice when Landry caught a pass and was promptly hit hard by safety Reshad Jones, who merely walked away laughing when Landry threw the ball at him.
“He’s just making a play, I was making a play,” Landry said after practice. “It’s just football, that’s all I can call it. Just football.”
Regardless of what he said, it's clear he has that necessary fight in him that can give him the potential to be a star receiver in the NFL, and only time will tell whether that potential will be reached. Although early signs are leading many fans to be hopeful that the answer to that question is yes.
