Wide receiver Jarvis Landry is one of the Cleveland Browns' major offseason acquisitions. Landry is being counted on to be a much-needed offensive weapon for Cleveland.

In last week's episode of 'Hard Knocls,' which is chronicling the Browns' training camp, Landry was filmed giving a fiery speech to teammates.

The message of Landry's address was clear: guys can't skip practice if they're sore or give anything less than 100 percent effort.

That sounds great, which makes Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson's quotes today somewhat perplexing. Jackson is taking heat for one line in particular.

Here's what Hue said, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala.

Now, perhaps Jackson is being taken out of context? Because that quote doesn't sound great.

How the Browns go about doing things is probably a major reason why the franchise has gone 1-31 the last two seasons. Landry seemed like he was trying to set a good example.

Jackson's leash in Cleveland is pretty short entering the year. He probably didn't do himself any favors by saying this.
