Dolphins

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald expects the Dolphins to sign WR Jarvis Landry to an extension before the start of training camp this summer.

On Tuesday, Dolphins HC Adam Gase made it clear that retaining Landry long-term was among their goals.

“Our goal is to make sure that these three guys (Landry, [Kenny] Stills and [DeVante] Parker) stay together for a long period of time and to make sure they stay with the quarterback to develop a great continuity between those guys,” Gase said.

  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins had defensive line coach Terrell Williams travel to East Lansing on Tuesday to privately workout Michigan State DT Malik McDowell.

Panthers

Panthers HC Ron Rivera made it clear that he plans to do a lot of work on LSU RB Leonard Fournette in the coming weeks.

“I think it’s always a concern with a big back. There are a lot of big backs that have come into this league and done well, and some have struggled,” Rivera said, via the Charlotte Observer. “Part of it is when you take the hits that you’ve taken. It’s a very physical game. But he is a young man that we most certainly want to get to know as best as possible.”

  • According to Joe Person, Rivera’s comments indicated that taking a tight end O.J. Howard may not be a strong consideration for them end.
  • Rivera said they would like to have another first-round pick, which could be an indication that they could be looking to trade back into the latter portion of round one.
  • Matt Barrows reports that there is “a lot of talk” about the Panthers, who hold the No. 8 selection, trying to obtain the 49ers’ No. 2 overall pick. However, Barrows mentions that no trade is being worked on at this point in time.
