Dolphins haven’t offered Jarvis Landry a contract extension

Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry is heading into the final season of his rookie contract and says he won’t talk about an extension once the season starts. That means the sides have less than two months to work out a deal, but the Dolphins don’t seem to be in any hurry.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Miami still hasn’t made an offer to extend Landry’s deal.

The Dolphins may have decided that they’d like to see how a motivated Landry plays in a contract year this season, and then they can either franchise tag him, sign him to a long-term deal or let him walk in 2018.

This year, Landry is a bargain at $893,852. The franchise tag for wide receivers next year will likely be more than $16 million.

  1. Learn from the Redskins mistake, sign him now as the price for a long term contract will only go up next year or the following year if he is tagged next year.

  2. He’s not going anywhere this year or next year. These next 2 years could very well be his best career years and no what happens Fins will have him for that.

  3. I’ve been told by a couple media people in S. Florida that this deal will get done. They are just trying to set the market value for him and work the numbers from there. I guess if he feels like he should get paid like a top #1 receiver, they are going to have a problem. He’s not A.J. Green.

  4. Garoppolo was picked one spot ahead of Landry and I recall at the time how many were saying the Patriots had once again outsmarted the Dolphins. Thank goodness Landry & Brady haven’t been teammates the past 3 seasons. Let’s ensure that never occurs – sign him long term.

  5. .
    Whether they sign Landry or franchise him, the Dolphins are going to be paying 3 players (Tannehill, Suh and Landry) 60 million dollars. It’s difficult to build depth on the roster when your salary cap is out of balance.

    A motivated Laundry??
    The guy is the heart and sole of the team, looks like another Tannebaum disaster coming up.
    Unbelievable!

    Be careful Miami, Landry would look great in a Pats uniform. Pay the man.

    Could not agree more, though he’ll command top dollar when he hits the market.

    Best player on the Miami roster, totally makes sense to ignore him while guaranteeing Julius Thomas $7.5m (you have Stills, Parker, and Landry – options are not the problem for Tannehill), Timmons $11m, and Alonso $16m. Not to mention extending Wake (great player, but the dude is 35) with $10m guaranteed.

    Suh is gone next year.

  10. Landry apparently expects to be paid like a top 5 receiver. He still has a year on his existing contract. The Dolphins have told him that if he plays like a top 5 receiver, then he will be paid accordingly.

    With the exception of Deandre Hopkins, it’s kinda hard to be a top 5 WR when you have a bottom 10 QB

  12. Dude is quietly setting records for most receptions to start a career in three seasons I believe. I try really hard as a Vikings fan to find AFC teams I enjoy watching like Miami, San Diego and a few others… but when you see front offices neglect a dude who seems to push harder than most, even in a blowout loss…. you gotta make this guy a priority. He deserves it. It’s frustrating to see the front office potentially drop the ball and seem ok with it…. but I guess its a power move. I hope it doesn’t end up biting them.

    Suh is gone next year.
    ———————————–

    $22M in dead cap money says he is not. The way his deal is structured makes it clear Suh isn’t going anywhere until 2020 at the earliest. Landry isn’t going anywhere either. There probably isn’t much by way of disagreement between his camp and the team about his value. There’s simply not a lot of cap room at the moment but relief is in sight after this year so it’s just a matter of massaging the numbers to make it work.

  14. He plays with heart, but he is no #1 receiver. Landry needs to accept that. Devante Parker needs to become the #1 receiver! Truth!

  15. I believe the Dolphins have a problem here. If Parker plays as they expect him to then waiting on Landry means they may have to pay both of them at the same time…while each uses the other’s contract offer as a bargaining chip. That means Stills big contract needs to be expendable and that won’t happen until next year at the earliest.

    I think the Dolphins are trying to figure out the cheapest way to keep Landry and Parker. Stills will need to renegotiate in 2018 or 2019 to stay. I expect Stills’ numbers to come down if Parker’s go up so there may be room to maneuver. If Parker does not have a stellar year and Stills does, then Parker’s price drops. Caroo is the wild card here IMHO. I think he can do close to what Landry does on the field but Landry, by far, is the fan favorite. They could (assuming an optimal progression from other WR) be OK down the road without Landry but the fans (and many teammates) won’t like that one bit…me included.

  16. Suh is gone next year.

    And who will they be replacing him with? I seriously doubt this will happen. I believe that Suh restructures his contract and finishes his career in Miami. He wants to be a business man after he retires, there is nobody in the NFL better to learn from than Stephen Ross.

  17. Gase has changed the culture of this franchise. Players want to be with the Dolphins and are taking less money to do so. There is no doubt in my mind that this will get done, Miami has all the leverage with the franchise tag.

    I’m guessing a 5 year deal $60-$65 million deal, $40 ish million guaranteed. I would imagine it would be front loaded considering how young he is, this way they get him in his prime and if some of the younger players develop (Carroo, Ford) after a few years then it wouldn’t be much to unload that contract.

  18. Miami will resign Jarvis Landry no question about it! And Steven Ross is the main reason why! The owner of the Dolphins absolutely loves what Jarvis Landry does for the Dolphins organization both on & off the field! If the owner said he stays, & sign him you do it or you no longer have a job. Because the last time the Dolphins had a top notch slot man, who’s name was Wes Welker, they let him walk right into New England’s open arms & put together a HOF carrier!!! ENOUGH SAID!!!

  19. mccallumjohn,

    Welker, as a Dolphin, had 1 TD and 8 fumbles in 2 years. He got good after he went to NE. He would have been cut from most teams
