Jarvis Landry won’t talk extension during regular season

Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is heading into the final year of his contract, but that didn’t stop him from attending both the voluntary and the mandatory portions of the team’s offseason program.

Landry said early in the program that he wasn’t setting a deadline to get a new deal, but his agent has sketched out some parameters for talks. Damarius Bilbo told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald that his client wants to remain with the Dolphins, but won’t be upset if an extension doesn’t happen and added that Landry doesn’t want to talk about his contract beyond the start of the regular season.

“The ball is still in their court; we are happy to go into a fourth year healthy and eager to put another year in the books,” Bilbo said. “… We want to respect the Dolphins. When the season kicks off, we want to continue to respect that. We don’t want every game to be about a new contract. This is not a tactic; that is not an approach. This is who Jarvis is and what he wants out of the upcoming season.”

Bilbo said there have been no talks about the money involved in a new deal for the wideout and didn’t tell Jackson what kind of numbers his client was looking for in a new deal. He did call Landry the “heartbeat” and “sparkplug” of the Miami offense, however, and that would suggest a desire for a contract that would fit among the other No. 1 receivers around the league.

  1. Damarius Bilbo is probably a great agent. but his name sounds like a villain in an upcoming Harry Potter novel.

  2. The Dolphins will do right by Landry in the appropriate time line.

    You need look no further than Reshad Jones to undetstand that….

  3. He’s not worth #1 money. Someone compared him to Edelman. Well I know Landry has a total of 2 TDS against NE in his career. While sucking up a majority of targets during those games.

  4. Um, last time the Patriots played the Dolphins Edelman had 8 catches for 151 yards, including a 77 yard TD scamper. In the prior game, during the much vaunted Garoppolo era, Landry had a quintessential Landryism when he tried to hulk out and weave through half the defense but instead somehow managed to fumble straight down the sideline inbounds for a Patriots recovery. But at least he has promised to sweep the Patriots this year, which is always a smart thing to say and also something that has literally never happened during the Brady/Belichick era by any team in the division.

  5. Edelman – 8 Seasons
    425 Receptions – Avg 53/Season
    4,540 Rec Yds – Avg 567.5/Season
    24 TDs – Avg 3/Season

    Landry – 3 Seasons
    288 Receptions – Avg 96/Season
    3,051 Yds – Avg 1,017 / Season
    13 TDs – Avg 4.3/Season

    but keep thinking they are in the same class of WR Pat fans.

    there is NO comparison, Landry is the better athlete, Edelman is a very solid system football player.

  6. Jarvis Landry career against NE.

    56 targets in 6 career games
    39 receptions
    453 yards
    1 TD

    Julian Edelman career against MIA

    81 targets in 12 career games
    55 receptions
    731 yards
    5 TDS

  7. Stop the Eddleman comparisons please. Brady could make a snowman a pro bowler. In my opinion Laundry is one of the very best players in the league, talent, attitude, leadership he has it all. Eddleman is a fantastic player also but he is not in Laundry’s class.

  8. Occasionally we also win in December when we play NE in Miami.
    Like in 2013 and 2015. The latter cost NE home field advantage and they lost the AFC championship in Denver.
    Tannehill played on both games.
    Not sure if if that was a coincidence or the reason why Brady choked.

    Edelman must be the better WR given how he performs against of the 32 teams in the league. God pats fans are the most uneducated group of football fans. Can you even name there starting QB before Brady…no thats what I thought. Get a life and stop trolling other teams message boards
