Ravens, three mystery teams join in on Jarvis Landry talks

There are now more teams interested in franchised-tagged wide receiver Jarvis Landry, and one of them is the most active team of every offseason.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the Ravens joined the Bears among teams talking to tagged Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry about a possible trade. Fowler mentions “at least five” teams have talked to the agent, which means we have not one, not two, but three #MysteryTeams.

Of course, #MysteryTeam is the best of all the teams during the NFL offseason, because they’re interested in many players and they help speed things toward a conclusion by creating urgency, even if we never find out who they are or whether they actually exist.

Landry is prepared to sign his tag soon to enable a trade, and the Ravens join the Bears as one of the usual suspects. The Dolphins have given him permission to seek a trade.

The Ravens needed a wide receiver overhaul this offseason anyway, and adding a player as productive as Landry would be a huge boost.

The 25-year-old Landry already has 400 receptions, 22 touchdowns and three Pro Bowls in four seasons, but is pigeonholed by some as a slot receiver, which could depress the market a bit.

But it didn’t scare off #MysteryTeam.

  1. If a team wants Landry they should wait until after March 14 when the franchise tag money will start to hurt the Dolphins to the point where they will have to cut players and not pursue other free agents.

  2. Get rid of him, he is stalling Devante Parker’s progression..
    Also trade Kenny Stills for Martavis Bryant..
    Send Suh to Cleveland to lower our cap..

  3. God, I’d love to play poker against Ryan Pace. It is easy to get him to bid against himself, so I assume all of the ‘mystery’ teams are Chicago.

  4. don’t particularly like the guy’s mental makeup, but he has caught passes no matter who the Dolphin’s qb has been (Cutler, Tannehill, Moore, etc)…will be interesting how this all plays out…

  5. If any trade is made I doubt the Dolphins would get much out of it. They aren’t going to get a first-round pick in return. They might not even get a second. Still, I think they’d prefer someone to just take him off their hands for a bag of peanuts.

  6. Short, slow, doesn’t score points, commits stupid fouls and a “me first” player.
    Good luck with that.

  7. I can see Landry going to Cleveland along with a 2nd or 3 Rd round pick and the Dolphins swap number ones and select a quarterback they like

  8. Sure would like to get this done sooner than later. With the dolphins putting on the tag so early it feels like this has been going on forever.

  9. At 58 catches in 2017 Stills made $137,931.03 a catch

    At that rate – Jarvis in comparison made 112 catches or is valuing his yearly rate at $15,448,275.86

    That’s where Jarvis is coming up with the dollar amount with his contract demands
    He wants to be valued in the same way, and same $ per catch as what they paid Stills

    Kenny Stills signed a 4 year, $32,000,000 contract, including a base salary of $7,975,000 and a workout bonus of $25,000.
