According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have yet to make a contract offer to WR Jarvis Landry and there is “nothing percolating” at this time.
Landry said earlier this week that he will not discuss a contract with the team once the regular season starts.
“I want to focus,” Landry said of his decision to end talks at the start of the season. “I believe that Miami is where I want to be. Miami is the place I call home. I want to be able to give my all mentally, physically and emotionally this season.
“Once the season starts I just want to put all that behind me and win the Super Bowl,” said Landry.
This does not come as a big surprise since reports from the last couple of months have all indicated that nothing is imminent regarding an extension for Landry.
Landry is in line for a large contract extension at some point over the next year or so, as he’s developed into one of the best young receivers in the NFL, and some have said it wouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone if he ends up securing a deal that would make him one of the top-10 or 12 highest paid receivers in the game.
Landry, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2014. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $3.5 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $893,852 for the 2017 season.
In 2016, Landry appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and caught 94 passes for 1,136 yards receiving and four touchdowns. He also contributed 163 kick return yards. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
