The regular season is less than two weeks away, but that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from churning out chatter that the Miami Dolphins may be interested in moving Pro Bowl wideout Jarvis Landry. "I just let him know that there's no chance I'm going to trade you". Injury update: Gase said quarterback Ryan Tannehill already has begun rehabbing after undergoing surgery last week on his injured left knee. "I told him there's no chance he's being traded. If something that's not true comes out like that, and I'm informed of it, I'm going to approach the player and tell him what really is the story". Landry will not be traded.
Landry is in the final year of a contract that will pay him $893,850 this season - less than more than 100 other receivers.
Multiple sources shot down speculation that the Dolphins are listening to offers for Landry, possibly from the Cleveland Browns.
Despite the lack of progress in a new deal, Landry has shown up to every practice and team activity since non-mandatory organized team activities in May.
However, the Dolphins could retain him on a franchise tag in 2018.
"He's one of the guys that brings fire to the offense", Gase said. "All it takes is one play from him to ignite a lot of guys". The way he does it, it's so physical.
Landry has caught 288 passes in his first three seasons with the Dolphins, and Gase silenced any talk about his role being minimized because of DeVante Parker's emergence as a playmaker this camp. It's not normal wide receiver play.
Landry and Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Landry's friend and former LSU teammate, jointly own the National Football League record for most catches over the first three seasons of a career (288).
