Jarvis Landry’s early exit could lead to his exit from Dolphins

MIAMI GARDENS, FL - DECEMBER 31: Jarvis Landry /

The Miami Dolphins watched a brawl breakout on Sunday and then watched the Buffalo Bills walk away from the scrum with nothing. Jarvis Landry, ejected and dejected, walked to the locker room with football in hand.

Miami had just scored a touchdown late in the 4th quarter on a quick flip to Landry. Landry made it into the end-zone by extending the ball but he took issue apparently with a Bills player who opted to put his hands on or close to Landry’s neck. According to Landry in a short post-game media session.

As Landry ripped into the Bills offender, the rest of the Bills defense and Miami’s offense began fighting. Running back Kenyan Drake was thrown to the ground and then held there leading to Drake grabbing a Bills helmet off the field and throwing it. Drake joined Landry in the locker room.

Regardless of the fight and the dual ejections, the highly emotional Landry is entering a crucial two months. The Dolphins have that much time and maybe a week extra to get Landry under a long term contract.

Landry set a team record for receptions on Sunday beating his own 110 receiving mark by one. His final reception was his touchdown. In the process, Landry also took home the reception title in the NFL with his 111 performance. Besting the rest of the league wide receivers.

  • The performance and consistent play of Landry will make him a rich man this off-season. But will it be with Miami? Landry’s ejection was his first but it wasn’t his first unsportsmanlike penalty and he is almost as consistent with his penalties as he is with his receptions. And that could be a problem for a Dolphins team who for the second season in a row finished 2nd to last in penalties.

    On Sunday against the Bills, the Dolphins were flagged 14 times, their second highest total of the season. They had 17 against Tampa Bay. Miami was flagged more than 10 penalties five times this season.

    Now it’s time for the Dolphins to get down to business with Landry. He is a major piece of the Dolphins offense. Do the Dolphins see that or do they see the uneven head of a star player? We will know in the next two months.
