Officially Over Jarvis Landry

MIAMI GARDENS, FL - DECEMBER 11: Jarvis Landry /

Jarvis Landry is or better yet was the heart and soul of the Miami Dolphins.  There wasn’t a player that the fans could  better relate to on the field.  The passion, the fire, the willingness to succeed was what we all wanted to see every single Sunday.  Truth be told – Landry might never dawn the aqua and teal anymore.

I’m not sure how else to say this, except that I’m done.  Landry is the most skilled player the Miami Dolphins have on the offensive side of the ball.  The numbers provide ample evidence of that.  No other wide receiver in NFL history has caught more balls in their first four years than Jarvis.   As such, Jarvis think’s he deserves a contact that is up to his standards.

This is what tipped me over to the other side.  Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported that the Miami Dolphins offered Jarvis Landry a contract that would pay him 13 Million a season, with what I can image would be around 30 to 35 Million guaranteed.

That is an amazing deal for him and the team, as it provides Landry assurance that the Dolphins value him and protect his interest.

Landry and his agent countered with  15MM per season.

In early December, they offered Landry a contract that would pay him $13 million per season. Two weeks later, Bilbo countered with an offer close to $15 million per season.

The Dolphins haven’t responded and they are wise not too.  Landry isn’t Julio Jones and shouldn’t be two million dollars apart from Antonio Brown, who is at 17MM.  For all the love that Landry provides on a Sunday afternoon, he doesn’t produce when it matters the most.  Yes, he does convert on 3rd and 7, but so does Kenny Still or Devante Parker.

Barry Jackson post this morning was a hard read.  As for all Dolphin fans, they can actually salute their front office  who actually tried to make a legit offer to their star player and he said no.  There hands are literally tied and I commend them for that.  A trade is the best option now.

San Fran and Chicago are the best two bets.  They both offer great selection in the early second round and both have ample cap space that can accommodate that ludicrous offer that Landry would like to.

Landry you got greedy rather than being loyal to a fan base that loved you.  For that, I’m officially over you.
