Jarvis Landry Reportedly Signs Dolphins Franchise Tag Tender Amid Trade Rumors

Jarvis Landry Reportedly Signs Dolphins Franchise Tag Tender Amid Trade Rumors

Cleveland finished last in scoring and went 0-16.

Landry, 25, has been to three Pro Bowls in his first four seasons, since being selected by the Dolphins with the 63rd pick of the 2014 draft.

The three-time Pro Bowl receiver signed his $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday, a person familiar with the situation said.

But Landry's volatile personality became a concern for Miami. This past season, he led the league in receptions with 112 despite playing on an anemic Dolphins offense, which makes him the first player since Lydell Mitchell in 1977 to change teams the season after leading the league in catches, according to NFL Research. John Mullin of NBC Sports Chicago reported March 3: "Whispers are that the Bears and Miami Dolphins have had conversations about the Dolphins sending wide receiver Landry and a third-round pick to the Bears in exchange for Howard and a swap of the Dolphins pick at No. 11 overall for the Bears' at No. 8".

Five More Seasonal Flu Deaths
CDC officials are still recommending that unvaccinated people get the flu shot before the season's end. The latest data indicates 2,256 reported cases this season.

The Browns are thought to be considering drafting a quarterback with one of their first-round picks. In his four-year career, he's registered 400 receptions for 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns.

The Cleveland Browns are not done dealing with AFC East teams. He's set to earn $10 million next season as well as a $6 million roster bonus, and his deal in total comes with an $18 million cap hit for the 2018 season. Running back Kenyan Drake is also an adept receiver out of the backfield.

Cleveland is likely to sign a veteran quarterback in free agency - perhaps Cincinnati's AJ McCarron - and the Browns can take the best QB in this year's draft class with the No. 1 pick.

Without enough players to spread out defenses, the Browns were too often one-dimensional, and their lack of options made life more hard for rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer.
