Jarvis Landry is gone from the Miami Dolphins, but he still has a lot to say about the team and his time in Miami. He recently signed a huge deal (5 year-$75 million) with the team that traded for him, the Cleveland Browns. Landry said recently that he hasn’t heard from quarterback Ryan Tannehill since he was traded by the Miami Dolphins to the Cleveland Browns and that he isn’t that surprised, based on their relationship as teammates.
“I’m not surprised. We didn’t really have a good relationship anyway, so I’m not surprised,” Landry recently told the NFL Network.
Landry made headlines last week when he told Cleveland.com that his quarterback situation with the Browns (Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield & Drew Stanton) is “a lot better than what I had in Miami.” It was taken by many as a shot at Tannehill, but Landry said Wednesday that wasn’t the case. The interview is well worth reading, as it covers a lot of what is on Landry’s mind.
“I wasn’t trying to look back in the rearview mirror, you know. I’m focused on here and where we’re taking it here. I wasn’t trying to take a shot at him. I understand how hard every guy in this NFL works, especially at the position, especially at the quarterback position. But at the same time too … I give credit where credit is due,” he said.
Landry, who led the NFL with 112 receptions last season also has over 400 receptions in four seasons. No player in NFL history has caught as many passes over the course of his first four seasons in the league as Landry.
Tannehill missed last season after undergoing surgery to repair the ACL in his left knee but is practicing fully this offseason for the Fins. After trading Landry this offseason, the Dolphins tried to build back their receiving corps by signing Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson in free agency.
