Dolphins' Landry will wait his turn for new contract
Kiko Alonso, Reshad Jones, Andre Branch...all got paid this offseason by the Dolphins.
But the man setting NFL records in catches, still waits..
But Jarvis Landry is not going to wait sitting down.
Landry is at OTAs, not holding out for a new contract. "Juice" is entering the fourth year of his rookie deal, making about 9 hundred thousand dollars a year. A new contract would pay him in the ball park of 10 million a year. But if the Dolphins wait until the end of this season, he could test free agency.
Landry said, of course he'd like to get a new deal squared away before training camp, but he added, he is willing to wait his turn. "Honestly, I’m at the point in my life where I’m set," said Landry Wednesday. "I’m comfortable with the position that I am in right now and again, I’m here to help my team get to the Super Bowl. It starts with me being here. I can’t be one of those guys that sit out or not show up or just bring bad whatever to the organization. It’s something that for me, I know that I needed to be here.”
Head coach Adam Gase said that Landry has not brought the contract situation up to him whatsoever.
Landry has 288 catches in his Dolphins career. No one else has had more in their first three years in the NFL.
