Jarvis Landry will sign franchise tender

The Dolphins were the first team to use the franchise tag this year. And receiver Jarvis Landry will be the first one to accept it.

Per multiple reports, Landry will be signing the one-year offer.

Once signed, Landry will be under contract for 2018, at a salary that is expected to be in the range of $16.2 million (it could be higher). That amount will count against the Miami salary cap for 2018, and the team will no longer be able to rescind it.

Signing the tender is required before Landry can be traded. It remains to be seen whether anyone wants to give the Dolphins value for Landry, or whether any team wants to acquire him at a steep one-year salary or a long-term deal with the franchise tender as the starting point.

  1. It’s exactly what he should have done the moment they offered the tag tender since all the heat gets put on Miami to get something done. But it’s afar cry from what he was reported as saying earlier when he was quoted here as saying “Franchise tag is not a good deal for me”

  2. Captain Kirk’s Order!!!

    Now negotiations start with avg of this year and next year’s franchise tag…cuz the dolphins are going to franchise tag him again… thanks Capt… You’ve showed us the way…

  3. The Dolphins always have salary cap issues and they’re always average or below average. Having not won a Super Bowl in 44 years and counting, I’m starting to think that maybe they’re just not very good at this whole “building a football team” thing….

    Starting? Maybe??

    At some point in time someone will realize that Landry’s stats are jaded. The Dolphins other two WRs, Parker and Stills are mediocre at best. The TE position is manned by the worst group in the NFL. Where else, besides at Landry, would a Dolphins QB throw the ball?

  6. one of the best of all time stuck on the dolphins who are nothing more to than a retirement fund to whatever wheezebag owns them. gotta be the worst front office in recent memory

  7. I’m surprised at how many people seem to discredit Landry’s accomplishments. Yea, he has attitude issues. So does Marcus Peters. But both players are elite talents. Landry at worst is worth a late 2nd like Peters was. If Miami can’t find suitable value they’d be wise to patch things up between them and Landry and just hold onto him. He’s been one of their few bright spots for years now.

  8. We are going to franchise tag you….
    ‘Give me the contract I have a sharpie right here” is the only logical response.

  9. “I’m tired of being a farm team for the rest of the NFL.”

    Signed Miami Dolphins fans everywhere.

  10. People out there who are saying Laundry isn’t worth this and isn’t worth that have not seen the guy play except for highlights, are not Dolphin fans or have no clue. The guy may not be Julio Jones but he is a great player. What’s he worth? Nobody knows that’s what this process is all about. The Dolphins offered him a long term deal, he thinks he’s worth more or at least he is trying to get more that’s how this works and his value will be set in due course. The Dolphins don’t want to over pay, Laundry doesn’t want to under value himself, once this all gets sorted everybody has done their jobs and hopefully everybody is happy that they have done their best.

    The case you have outlined makes Landry stats look better not worse. He is often attracting the best corner and double coverage because he is by far the best Receiving Option. Last year the Dolphins QB’s play was dismal. And Landry still scored 9td and got 993 yards receiving.
    Imagine what he can do on a better team with complementary receivers.

  12. Perhaps he has realized his true value over the last few days by no trade suitors, nobody is going to pay him that much. I hope Miami does find a trade partner because I am not sure this relationship can be repaired now. Surely he has to know Miami has cap issues to fix so in order to try to compete they need top tier players which cost money. So either Jarvis takes a team friendly deal in hopes to build a better team or go chase the money and play in Ohio or Chicago.

  13. The Fins offer of 54 mill over 4 seems more than fair to me. For a 16 game season that’s above 1 millon per game. Not bad money for a Sunday afternoon.

  14. Offering Landry the reported amount of $13m over 4 years is certainly fair especially considering the Fins have Cap issues. Tannenbaum seems to be playing this one correctly. Fin Fans should hope that Landry’s flip flop and now willingness to sign the tender is due to having a trade partner! It’s better for the team’s Cap situation and for Landry to get a longer agreement in case of serious injury.

  15. Maybe he’s starting to realize nobody is going to pay him $16M per year other than the Dolphins. I still can’t understand why the Dolphins would tag him at that price. Maybe they are hoping that since he’s going to be playing for a contract he’ll have a monster year.

  16. The Dolphins did what they HAD to do. It sucks paying him this amount for one year, but he HAS to play well for a long term contract from Miami or any other team. They also had to Tag him to be able to get compensation whether it be Trade or Compensation Picks. It is also a possibility that work out a long term contract. It was the only decision and it was not a good one. This is the woes of a mediocre team with a “star player”. The only criticism I have is that they should have done this deal last year and would have been less. I have followed the saga closely and you all need to understand his agent Bilbo is N-U-T-S- ! and giving him bad info and feeding his ego. It’s a shame, barring his cheap shots and dopey penalties… I use to be a fan. Not anymore.

  17. So glad when this diva gets traded and Miami can build a real offense. Landry’s numbers, 570 targets with only 22 TD’s aren’t anywhere near the money he’s demanding. He simply is not a difference maker- so why the focus of any offense. That plus leading the league in stupid personal fouls = see ya later diva. Don’t let the good hit you on the way out.

  18. Wait- he lead the league in catches and didn’t even get 1000 yards! Ha ha. Also, he doesn’t draw the top corners playing in the slot.

  19. The Browns should offer Deshone Kizer or Cody Kessler and maybe a late round pick for Landry.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Not happening. There are likely options involving Landry and Suh (yes, Suh) with some draft pick swapping but I don’t see Kizer involved. Maybe Kessler as a backup option can get tossed in to finalize something. The Browns could use Landry to complement Gordon and help whichever young QB is starting and they have the cap space to absorb Suh’s contract. He has been outstanding but the fans and lazy writers only look at sacks. Gobbling up double-teams just doesn’t sound good to people who don’t know what they are watching.

  21. beachsidejames where did you learn to do math? 58 million over 4 years does NOT equal over a million per game on a 16 game season. over the next 4 years that’s 64 games which means less than a million per. I’m not sure which is worse your math or all the people who gave it a thumbs up.

  22. For my money there’s no better show in the NFL than watching him strut after picking up 8 yards on a 3rd and 12.

  23. Sorry Mr NBC did I say above 1 million? I meant about. Try not to think too much …you might hurt yourself.

  24. A really good WR with a few issues, he’s just not quite worth that much. Maybe $12-13 million, but he’s no Antonio Brown, nor is he the next Calvin Johnson.

    He does catch a lot of balls, but needs more yards and TD’s to go with the catches to be on a truly elite level.

    He could go somewhere else and be elite in a different offense, possibly.
