Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase didn’t have a whole lot to say about the status of Jarvis Landry, who continues to be connected to the wide receiver-needy Ravens.
Speaking Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine, Gase said the Dolphins did not use the franchise tag on Landry with the intent to trade him. He, however, gave a tepid endorsement of the productive wide receiver being part of the 2018 Dolphins. Miami officials were reportedly planning to meet with Landry’s agent Wednesday night in Indianapolis.
“If it works out the way we’ve kind of looked at things, that’s why we franchised him,” Gase said. “We’ll see how it goes.”
The Ravens had cursory conversations with the Dolphins last offseason about Landry, but found their asking price to be too high. They certainly could revisit those talks this year, but any trade would almost certainly have to include a contract extension from the Ravens. Landry, who has 400 catches and 22 touchdown receptions in his first four seasons, is reportedly eyeing an extension that would pay him around $14 million to $15 million per year.
