Dolphins to Place Franchise Tag on Jarvis Landry

Jarvis Landry Franchise Tagged By Dolphins After Huge 2017 Season
Off the market: Dolphins likely to use franchise tag on wide receiver Jarvis Landry, per report

22 February, 2018

On the first day teams could use their franchise or transition tags, the Miami Dolphins chose to place their non-exclusive franchise tag on star wide receiver Jarvis Landry. There isn't any team that will trade for Landry if he wants to play under the franchise tag this season, which is expected to pay him around $16.2 million next year. A person familiar with the team's plans tells The Associated Press that the Dolphins hope to sign Landry to a multi-year deal. For the other 31 teams in the National Football League, however, the franchise tag can test how committed they are to adding said player to their roster.

The franchise tag can be as rewarding as it can be polarizing for players who are eligible for free agency.

We're talking about Antonio Brown/DeAndre Hopkins-level money for a guy who took 65 percent of his snaps in the slot last season.

Unfortunately for the teams that were hoping to pry Landry away from the Dolphins, signing the former LSU Tigers star just became significantly more hard to do.

Landry has expressed his desire to remain in Miami and the Dolphins would love to sign him to a cap friendly long-term deal.

Landry has made the Pro Bowl in three of his four National Football League seasons and has an NFL-record 400 receptions through his four seasons. He then followed with a career-high 112 catches for 987 yards and a career-best nine touchdowns in 2017, which helped him earn a third straight trip to the Pro Bowl.

If Miami doesn't match an offer sheet, it would receive two first-round draft picks in exchange for Landry by his new team. Miami also could withdraw the tag.
