Dolphins' Landry reportedly sets deadline for new contract
DAVIE, Fla (CBS12) —
Dolphins star Jarvis Landry reportedly will not talk about during the contract during the season, but hopes to have a deal done before Week 1.
The Dolphins have yet to make an offer to extend Landry and now his agent Damarius Bilbo has made the September 10th season opener against Tampa Bay the deadline for any deal to be reached, according to the Miami Herald.
Landry, who is set to make $893,850 this season on the final year of his rookie deal, will not be angry in any way if the new is not done by Week 1, per the Miami Herald.
Bilbo told the Miami Herald that he wants to be respectful to the Dolphins, but the ball is in their court.
Landry has made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons, along with a franchise record 110 catches in 2015. He is coming off a year in which he caught 94 passes, while adding 1,136 yards and four touchdowns.
Despite no offer coming from Dolphins yet, Landry still showed up to voluntary and mandatory workouts of the team’s offseason program, and has no plans of holding out during training camp or the season.
If the Dolphins do not agree to an extension with Landry, he is set to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason.
