Dolphins reportedly get fourth in 2018, seventh in ’19 for Jarvis Landry

The Dolphins didn’t get much for receiver Jarvis Landry, but they did clear cap space.

Miami received a fourth-round pick in 2018 — No. 123 overall — and a seventh-round pick in 2019 from the Browns, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports. It’s likely not enough to pacify Dolphins fans, who weren’t exactly happy with the Jay Ajayi deal with Philadelphia during the season.

The good news, though, is the Dolphins got something for Landry.

Landry, 25, made 400 catches for 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns in his four-year career with the Dolphins.

  1. Wouldn’t they have gotten a 3rd as a comp pick if he just signed somewhere else (if they hadn’t franchise tagged him)?

  2. Good move with the tag by the Dolphins. Probably would of got a 3rd round comp pick but a Brown’s 4th is almost just as good and a 7th.

  3. one of the greatest young receivers of all time and thats what yall get. the dolphins are such a poorly run club. owner obviously doesnt care about winning just wants the operation to turn a profit

  4. The Dolphins werent going to win with or without Landry this year, too much work is needed to turn them bavk around. And they would have lost him after anyhow. So getting draft picks now for him better positions them to build into a team that will win at some point.

  5. Why trade away one of your best young players
    for a couple of throw away picks ?
    Landry was productive and coming into his prime.
    Makes little sense.

    Every other team will be looking to make a deal with the ‘Phins
    because now they see how they can be fished in.

  6. Seems like robbery on the surface, but the reality is a different story. The Dolphins got to clear the cap space they wanted, and got a few extra picks out of the deal. It seemed like they were ready to let him walk, but by slapping him with the tag they receive some compensation for doing virtually nothing.

  7. Yeah they should have just let him walk and probably would have gotten a 3rd round pick next year. When the trade first was announced without details Dolphins fans on ESPN.com were saying they were suggesting they got the Browns 4th (no, not round. 4th OVERALL!) this year AND a 1st round pick NEXT year! They were close…

  8. Miami got fleeced!!! As usual the front office is clueless!! Bad decisions all the way around. Julius Thomas for his salary and then Cutler for 10 mill was foolish. Timmons was a waste of money as well. Poor decisions, Ross will be sending Tannenbaum down the road soon I hope. If Gase doesn’t turn this team into a playoff thought then it should be lights out for him as well.

    They cleared $16M off the books…the same $16M they put on the books with the stupid tag last week. They should have done nothing. They made a decent offer and Landry turned it down. Let that ride and he goes somewhere else but the Dolphins likely get a 3rd round comp pick.

    I seriously doubt anyone said anything like that. Your an idiot for even saying anything of the sort.

  11. .
    A tale of two franchises: Buffalo traded players when their value was high and now has six picks in the first three rounds. Miami is unloading players at fire sale prices and now has little hope for the future.
    .

  12. So if my math is right the dolphins traded ajayi,landry and 4th round pick 111 and got Robert Quinn and the 4th round pick 123 and swapped 6th round picks with the rams and a Cleveland 7th in 2019.
    My head hurts.

    You’re assuming that they get zero free agents. They will be a player in free agent market and get one big name sand some secondary names.

  14. Dolphins turned Ajayi into Quinn and found out Drake is the better RB. But you keep making up the idea that fans were somehow not happy about it.

    Sucks about Landry, but I’m willing to bet if Miami paid him the money he wanted, you would be writing articles about how Miami overpaid. Instead of letting Landry just walk in FA, they turned nothing into 2 draft picks and saved the money.

    I know it hurts for trolls to admit it, but Miami got out of those players with the best possible scenario. Instead of paying Landry $15 mil a year and Ajayi $5+mil he’ll probably demand, they can move on from players that were good, not great and finally didn’t overpay.

  15. 666 is telling it with realties, we don’t need to like it, its what it is, we can’t keep over paying players that can be replace with a good TE. Time to move on. And ever pick can turn to gold.Bill

    I might be an “idiot” from time to time but sadly in this case the only idiots were your fellow Phins fans. A few people were suggesting 1st and 2nd round picks this year and next. I tried posting links to the articles on the NFL and ESPN sites for you but PFT didn’t allow it. By all means please scroll towards the bottom of either article if you don’t believe me

  17. They let him go anyway
    Why not get a three and to not be able to get a three from them is unbelievable
    We have no one worthy on our team
    No one wants our players and if they do we give hem away
    They better get a qb in the draft

  18. Any Dolphins fan that actually thought they would get a 1st or 2nd round pick for Landry was as delusional as Landry was. He was good but not at all worth what the Dolphins offered much less the tag and a long term deal likely based off of it. A 3rd would have been max IMHO and this year’s 4th rounder is close enough.

  19. As a Dolfan I am happy we finally didnt overpay a player i.e Suh. There is no reason a sub .500 team should have close to the highest payroll in the NFL. Be hot or cold. IF you are going to be bad, be the worst. If you are going to be good, be the best (or at least contending against the best). Miami drafts just outside the top 10 almost every year and it never works out. Just stink for 3-4 years and pray you get lucky. But Tannenbaum has to go.

  20. Landry was essentially a free agent. The Browns gave up draft picks to pay a receiver top-three money. The Dolphins either had the choice to pay him big money, let him go to free agency or recoup draft picks in this trade. The compensatory pick might be higher but people are forgetting that if the Dolphins sign other free agents they might not get that pick, and that pick comes in 2019, which has less value than a pick in 2018. I really don’t understand how it’s a fleecing to give up a draft pick just for the right to overpay for a player. There’s dozens of top-notch free agents every year and none of them cost teams draft picks.
