No new deal, but Jarvis Landry at Dolphins workouts

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry said recently that he expects the Dolphins to beat the Patriots both times they play in the 2017 season and he’s at the team’s first day of work as they prepare to meet that goal.

Landry is heading into the final year of his contract and there’s been chatter this offseason about working on an extension with the team. Nothing has come to fruition and that can sometimes lead players to skip voluntary work, but Landry’s view, per Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post, is that “football players don’t hold out from football things.”

The Dolphins re-signed Kenny Stills to a four-year deal this offseason, but have cap space to get something done with Landry as well. The wideout is set to make just under $900,000 under the terms of his current deal.

Miami also has DeVante Parker at wideout, but there’s some time to go before the 2015 first-round pick’s contract should become an issue for the team.

  1. As a Pats fan, one of the 1rst guys I’d pick off any NFL roster is JLandry. Clutch and tough as nails. Kept playing hard when the rest of the Dolphins quit. Any Dolphins fan that doesn’t get how valuable this guy is is clueless. Don’t pay and let him walk. Watch him become an All Pro somewhere else.

  2. come to Indy…we’ll squeeze that good attitude right out of you and leave you as a pile of wasted talent smoldering with crank and crack fumes…it’s what we do…

  3. Landry (5’11 203 lbs) knocked Hightower (6’4 270lbs) on his butt and brushed him off like he was nothing…..Miami better pay this man!

    Dude breaks tackles better than most RB’s in the league.

  4. Any beat writer that reported he would not or even might not show up has no business reporting on the team. Landry is the heart & soul of that team and everybody should know the Dolphins will take care of his contract. His only issue is that he can sometimes be over-the-top and out of control emotionally resulting in stupid penalties. I wish he would tone that down some but what he brings is more valuable than what he gives up in penalties…especially as the Dolphins are finally getting to the point where a penalty here or there won’t tank their chances of winning.

  5. Great player no doubt however beat my Patriots twice, don’t know about that. 🙂
    Love Laundry’s passion!

    Pat’s and Dolphins have split 3 of the 4 years. It’s not impossible, not likely but not impossible.

    I do find it hilarious that the media took what Landry said and acted like it was just fuel to the Patriots fire. I’m glad that Landry went out there and showed confidence in himself and his team, I wouldn’t want him to just give the boring stock answers that most other teams do. I guarantee what Landry said will have no affect on how the Patriots play the Dolphins. If anything I’m willing to bet that most, if not all of the Patriot’s players and coaches respect what Landry said and probably applaud him for it.

  6. Dude has some serious bad karma coming his way for ending Aaron Williams career with a completely unnecessary head shot.

    He’s playing with fire not having signed a big deal yet….

    The karma gods don’t play.

  7. Nothing has come to fruition and that can sometimes lead players to skip voluntary work, but Landry’s view, per Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post, is that “football players don’t hold out from football things.”

    This is a great attitude to have. However, from a financial perspective it is risky as an injury in voluntary offseason workouts could potential threaten his chances at a lucrative contract. I understand he wants to show loyalty but I would not fault him for wanting to ensure he is still employed for longer than one year.

  8. magikskillz These voluntary workouts aren’t related to football activities. All they are doing is hanging out in weight room.

  9. Lots of love for Landry i see. In my opinion this is deserved. Love the way he plays. If tacklers have bad technique or dont set themselves right he just blows them up and its funny to see. He reminds of a bull. When he lowers his ” Watch out” lol.

    At least patriot fans are smart enough to notice. Dolphin fans, not so much. Roxbury must be a suburb of Miami.
