It was reported Thursday that the Miami Dolphins had signed rookie Jarvis Landry to a four-year contract. Landry, who was drafted in the second round of May’s draft, is now the earliest draft pick the Dolphins have signed up to this point.
Jarvis Landry attended Louisiana State University, and started 12 games with the Tigers, totaling 137 receptions for 1,809 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Landry is competing with several Dolphins for the slot receiver spot, including Brandon Gibson, and Rishard Matthews. Throughout OTAs, Landry has reportedly made more than an impact in just the receiver position, but also on special teams. Landry has experience in special teams with LSU where he registered 21 tackles along with 2 fumble recoveries on special teams.
Landry’s signing will likely set the table for the Dolphins to sign their first round selection, Ja’waun James from Tennessee.
