Jarvis Landry: Dolphins 'a bit disrespectful' in contract negotiations

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry isn't happy with how contract talks with the team have recently stopped.

Prior to the end of the 2017 season, the 25-year-old Adams signed a four-year deal worth $58 million and containing $18 million in guaranteed money.

"My agent and I talked about being a leader and setting a good example, so I silenced all those things by going to OTAs and training camp, by putting the team first and being a team guy", Landry told the Miami Herald. "I feel like in the National Football League, they preach loyalty and family, and they have none for you". The former would guarantee another year under contract with the Dolphins, and the latter would give the front office an opportunity to match any offer given to him in free agency. Landry then followed with a counteroffer but has yet to recieve a response from the team.

Additionally, Landry is dealing with a perception that he doesn't pay close attention to every little detail. "They see a player who sometimes runs the right routes and sometimes doesn't. They see a player who doesn't lead in the locker room although he's in a great position to do so".

The Dolphins have a few options available to them in this contract situation with Landry, which they could go the route of placing the franchise tag on him for the 2018 season that will be worth almost $16 million. He is also one of just eight receivers in team history to earn a Pro Bowl selection, and also set the National Football League mark with 400 catches over his first four years.

Damarius Bilbo, the receiver's agent, downplayed those apparent problems. Gase is very specific in the depth of routes he wants.

Miami drafted Landry in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He's caught 400 passes for 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns while playing all 64 of the team's games.
