Jarvis Landry didn’t want his contract hindering the team

AP

The Dolphins and receiver Jarvis Landry are not yet negotiating a new contract. That hasn’t affected Landry’s willingness to report for duty.

“No, there was not,” Landry told reporters when asked whether there was any question as to whether he’d show up for the first day of training camp practice.

“Like I said, for me, being a leader and having an opportunity to take another step, we don’t need anything hindering us off that path,” Landry said. “So for me to be here and to show the guys that it is about them and it’s about the team, that’s what I’m here to do.”

That’s great news for the Dolphins, but it doesn’t change the fact that, absent a contract extension before the end of the season, they’ll have to decide between paying him, letting him his the open market, or using the franchise tag.

  1. mike tannenbaum will hinder the team for him.

    florio gets an assist on that one.

    It’s too easy.

  2. Jarvis has a healthy ego. He wants and expects to be paid as a top 5 NFL wide receiver. While he is an an elite slot receiver, he doesn’t score many TDs. Miami allegedly has told him that if he wants top 5 money like Julio and Jordy, then they want to see a lot more TDs. Make no mistake, the Dolphins love Jarvis and they want to reward him. Also interesting to note that Miami does have the money up their sleeve this year, if he agrees to a lesser amount. Note, they can franchise tag him next season, so don’t push the scenario that a deal has to be done now.

    Its unrealistic to compare Landry’s results with Jones, Nelson or Brown. They are playing with much better QB’s in much mre sophisticated passing attacks. Stack Landry up against Beckham or Hopkins is you are looking for a comparison. He could replace either of them without drop
    off and blocks better than both put together. Landry is the real deal.

    The TD nonsense this guy talks about is fan/blogger BS.
    Miami simply values his skills less than he does.
    Personally I love the guy and hope the figure something out. If not, I imagine they franchise tag him next year. Miami holds the leverage in this one.

  5. He will get paid.

    Trust, Adam Gase is no fool and understands that he’ll have to let DeVante Parker walk, no matter how good he is this season, based on 3 consistent seasons of production by Landry.

    I doubt a single player on the team would bat an eye either.
