Wide receiver Jarvis Laundry has a lot to prove after signing a one-year contract with the New Orleans Saints.
First, he must show the team that he is worthy of the investment.
Similarly, having a bounce-back season must keep the Nassars cool.
In the end, he wants to convince the Cleveland Browns to release him.
In fact, Laundry’s performance has been declining over the last three seasons.
But playing for his hometown squad could boost his career.

Sents’ official Twitter account posted the words “Home Grown” after sharing the laundry football highlight, courtesy of The Checkdown.
Laundry was born in Convent, Louisiana, on November 28, 1992, and attended high school in Luther.
Coming out of high school, he was considered a five-star recruiter which meant elite college football programs kept an eye on him.
Eventually, he chose to stay by playing for the LSU Tigers.
In his last year at Baton Rouge, Laundry had 1,193 yards and ten touchdowns.
After being selected by the Miami Dolphins in the 2014 NFL Draft, Landry landed in Cleveland before joining the Saints.
Will Landry be a boom or a bust for New Orleans?
The 29-year-old wideout will join a squad that averaged the league’s worst 187.4 passing yards last season.
All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas could not play due to injury, leaving Marquez Callaway and Treyquan Smith as their top receivers.
However, Thomas will see the action after the surgery on the injury.
Saints also drafted Chris Olav in the first round of the 2022 draft.
These two players should have Landry give optimal match up.
He must use those coverage to rack up yards and touchdown catches.
If all goes well, the Saints Receiving Corps could be a threat to the opposition.
