Mike Tannenbaum on Jarvis Landry: We’ll see where it goes

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry and his agent offered an update recently on where things stand with the Dolphins in relation to a new contract that would keep him in Miami.

Landry said that there hasn’t been an exchange of contract proposals since the middle of December and described having “mixed emotions” with the two sides far apart when it comes to their desired deals. Landry’s agent, Damarius Bilbo, followed up on that by saying Landry wouldn’t take a discount to stay in Miami.

Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum didn’t have quite as much to share about Landry on Wednesday,

“We have more time to go before the deadline,” Tannenbaum said, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. “We’ll see where it goes.”

The closer things get to the deadline to use the franchise tag, the better the chances that Landry will take the chance to see what other teams may be offering for his services if he isn’t tagged. Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Ravens looked into trading for Landry last year, so they may be interested in bringing him in should the opportunity present itself.

  1. Just look at Alshon. Bears let him walk for absolutely nothing in return…

    -Signed a Bears fan…

  2. Nothing to see here IMO, Offer what you think his value is to the Miami Dolphins. If he feels like that is not fair enough then take a hike. In a few years you will wish you stayed in South Florida with no income taxes. But if you feel the grass is greener then by all means go find out.

  3. Let him walk.
    Get rid of him like they got rid of Ajayi.

    The Dolphins have done a fantastic job of drafting, just look at all the recent playoffs they have participated in. They have the best GM in the game, Mike Tannenbaum. Time to give Ryan Tannehill a monster contract extension

    – signed: the rest of the AFC East

    😉

  4. “Let him walk.
    Get rid of him like they got rid of Ajayi.”

    Yeah, that worked out good. The guy who replaced Ajayi had better production at a fraction of the cost.

  5. Sure, let him go to Baltimore. Who will throw to him? The Mike Wallace experiment is working very well, neither is the Breshard Perriman exp.

    You do realize that Ajayi was getting paid $325k in 2017 and the guy who said to be “producing more” made more then ajayi as he was a 3rd rd pick and made double what Ajayi was making

  7. The best slot receiver in the league in regards to talent.
    Unfortunately, his attitude can cost the team yards in crucial situations.

    I don’t think he will ever mature in Miami. If they sign him to a big contract, it will just enable his behavior.

    As a Miami fan, I deem him expendable. Spend the money on Defense.

  8. I love how people say he only caught 5 yard slants. That’s not his fault, it’s the plays that we’re drawn up. He’ll do fine else where.
    Just remember, before it was Landry it was Hartline and Davone Bess. Both produced well, neither were signed for the money they wanted by Miami. They didn’t do very well elsewhere.

  9. Give Jakkeem Grant a chance if Landry walks. Grant has shown when given a chance he can make explosive plays. I like Landy just like I liked Ajayi but I go over Ajayi real quick when I witnessed what Drake is capable of..!

    If Miami does not sign him then NE will definitely pursue him.

    New England doesn’t break the bank for WR’s. The $8.5M they are going to pay Cooks next year will be the 2nd highest amount they have EVER paid a WR in salary for one year and the only reason Welker beat it by $1M was a result of being tagged. Landry is a WR in the Ward/Smith mode, despite his self indulgent moments he brings it with intensity on every down. That said it’s hard to justify a franchise tag hit to the cap for Miami since they aren’t exactly hurting at WR which makes this an interesting negotiation to watch.

    —————
    His contract asks and his behavior, the two things that Miami is taking a long look at would be showstoppers in NE. Some team will orobably pay him his ask and inherit thebheadache but I seriously doubt it would be the Pats.

    Also, the Pats have gone from being tight on recievers to suddenly being a bit heavy. As guys come back from IR they are probably going to need to shed a couple in the off season.

  12. Drew Brees needs another possession receiver and Louisiana would welcome Jarvis back to his home state in a heartbeat.

  13. “Let him walk.
    Get rid of him like they got rid of Ajayi.”

    And in 5 years Ajayi will be lucky to be “walking”. The organization knows about his bone on bone… fans dont.

    5 years? You think NFL teams are looking 5 years out on a RB? Maybe 2, tops.

  15. Teams like Cleveland, San Francisco or Chicago have the salary cap space to blow everyone out of the market by offering Jarvis say a ridiculous $17M per season on a long term deal with say $45M guaranteed. Landry is all about the money. He is good but ultimately has no loyalty to the Dolphins and will go to the highest bidder. Miami may consider using the franchise tag, but will probably conclude he’s not worth it.

  16. I could see Jarvis Landry on the Jaguars. Obviously not a fan of either team but if you ask me where he fits. 2nd choice would be San Fran.

  17. Mike Tannenbaum has made so many mistakes for the Dolphins. So I’m hoping he gets it right with Jarvis Landry and allows him to leave without pursuing his over priced services.

  18. “You do realize that Ajayi was getting paid $325k in 2017 and the guy who said to be “producing more” made more then ajayi as he was a 3rd rd pick and made double what Ajayi was making”

    2017 Season
    Jay Ajay 1 TD run 4.2 YPA (zero TD runs with Dolphins)
    Kenyon Drake 3 TD runs 4.8 YPA

    That’s called “producing more”.

    I found out you’re right about the contracts. The business side of football never interested me much, just the football side of football.
