Browns signed Jarvis Landry to a five-year, $75.5 million extension through 2023.
ESPN's Josina Anderson was the first to report the impending deal. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the contract includes $47 million guaranteed, and Landry is now the fifth-highest paid receiver in the league based on average salary. It is a shocking price to pay for a volume-based player who never elevated Miami's passing attack past mediocre, but Landry at worst can be a reliable safety blanket for whichever quarterback Cleveland selects with the No. 1 overall pick.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jarvis Landry might still play under the terms of the franchise tag with the Browns.

The two sides did not work out a long-term deal before the trade went down, and RapSheet reports Landry could play out the one-year tender to get a feel for how he fits in Cleveland before signing a long-term deal. It also makes sense for Landry to wait if the Browns are not willing to guarantee him the value of the tag this year ($15.98 million) and a large chunk of what it would cost to tag him next season ($19.18 million). Cleveland almost certainly made this trade with the intent to sign Landry to an extension, but it does not sound like that is a given.
Mar 9 - 5:40 PM

Browns acquired WR Jarvis Landry from the Dolphins in exchange for the No. 123 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft and a seventh-round pick in 2019.

The Browns are also working on a new contract with Landry, who signed his one-year, $15.982 million franchise tender earlier this week. It looked like the Dolphins may have backed themselves into a corner by tagging a player they never actually wanted, but it all worked out in the end. Landry's salary was never an issue for the Browns, who boast over $100 million in cap space. It probably won't be enough to lure in Kirk Cousins, but the Browns do offer an intriguing receiving corps with Landry, Josh Gordon and former first-round pick Corey Coleman. Landry's 400 catches through his first four seasons are the most in NFL history. Still, it will be hard to gauge his fantasy value until we know what Cleveland's plan is at quarterback.
Mar 9 - 4:31 PM

Dolphins signed franchised player Jarvis Landry to a one-year, $15.982 million contract.

Landry signing the tender means the Dolphins are no longer able to rescind the tag, which could be a concern with seemingly little movement in trade talks -- The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson tweeted a trade is "not imminent." The Dolphins are over the cap as it stands now, and while cutting guys like Lawrence Timmons and Julius Thomas will give them some room, it will not be enough to really be a player in free agency. Miami needs to find a trade partner for Landry.
Mar 8 - 11:16 AM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Bears and Ravens are among "at least five teams" to inquire about trading for Jarvis Landry.

Fowler says "no deal is imminent at this time," but all signs point toward Landry being traded in the next couple weeks or so. Both the Bears and Ravens desperately need receiving corps upgrades, and Landry would certainly be a good start. While he isn't a prototypical No. 1 receiver, he would provide an obvious boost to both teams that have over 200 available targets and close to 50 percent of their air yards available from last season.
Mar 4 - 10:19 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jarvis Landry will sign his franchise tender.

In a video posted to Twitter on Saturday, Landry said he would consider not signing the tag, a tactic often used by franchise players to gain leverage in contract negotiations. However, holding out would only hurt Landry as the Dolphins can't trade him until he signs his $16.2 million franchise tender. There's no secret the 25-year-old is after a long-term contract, but it doesn't look like that deal will come from the Dolphins.
Mar 4 - 8:35 AM

Jarvis Landry said he is "considering not playing" on the franchise tag.

"The franchise tag is not a good deal for me," Landry continued. "In that year anything can happen. Look at guys like Ryan Shazier, who may not have an opportunity to play again." Saying you may not play under the terms of the tag is standard operating procedure for players looking for leverage in long-term negotiations, but it is unlikely Landry would actually give up game checks. The receiver tag is expected to be worth just north of $16 million. The Dolphins have given Landry permission to seek a trade.
Mar 3 - 1:06 PM

Jason Wolf of the Nashville Tennessean reports the Titans are among Jarvis Landry's "preferred destinations."

The interest does not appear to be mutual, however, as the Titans have yet to engage the Dolphins in trade talks. Landry would be an upgrade on Eric Decker, who flopped with just 54 catches for 563 yards and a single touchdown last season. The Dolphins slapped Landry with the $16.2 million franchise tag last week but fully plan on trading him before the start of free agency. So far the Bears, Browns, Ravens and 49ers have emerged as his top suitors.
Mar 2 - 9:00 PM

Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post listed the Bears, Browns, Ravens and 49ers as teams interested in acquiring Jarvis Landry.

The Bears and Ravens had previously been linked to Landry while the Browns and 49ers are new suitors. Cleveland should have more than enough cap space to accommodate Landry at his $16.2 million salary while the Niners would be wise to add a pass-catcher for Jimmy Garoppolo. The Dolphins were already over the cap when they acquired Robert Quinn from the Rams on Friday and will be in dire straits if they don't move Landry before the start of free agency. Miami probably regrets tagging Landry and may rescind the tag if his trade market dries up.
Mar 2 - 8:26 PM

Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers aren't interested in trading for Jarvis Landry.

The Panthers are thin on pass-catchers but reportedly prefer a receiver with "more top-end speed." Landry has mostly played out of the slot since arriving as a second-round pick in 2014. The 25-year-old's trade market is beginning to take shape with the Bears, Ravens, Saints and Titans emerging as a few of his top suitors.
Mar 2 - 2:20 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Bears have emerged as a trade "possibility" for franchise tagged WR Jarvis Landry.

Reporter Barry Jackson also passes along that Landry will soon sign the tag, a necessary precursor to any deal. Per Jackson, Chicago is one of multiple teams that has emerged as a possible suitor. The Dolphins have told Landry they will not be making a long-term offer "at this time," but that they would be comfortable with him playing under the $16 million tag in 2018. That's hard to believe for a cap-strapped team that has indicated time and again it was ready for Landry to walk. The Dolphins have granted Landry permission to seek a trade, meaning both sides are working on a potential move out of town.
Mar 1 - 10:11 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins have granted franchise tagged WR Jarvis Landry permission to seek a trade.

That's "seek and facilitate" a trade. It's news that's been expected since Landry was tagged. The Dolphins' plan was transparent after they spent over an entire year telegraphing they were ready to let Landry walk. Speculation has been rife on where Landry could end up, but concrete suitors have yet to be reported. The Dolphins could end up disappointed in the compensation for a slot receiver who will be demanding the moon in long-term talks.
Mar 1 - 9:15 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports "multiple sources" believe the Dolphins are hoping to trade franchise tagged WR Jarvis Landry.

The Dolphins are meeting with Landry's rep Wednesday at the Combine. The Miami Herald has reported it would be a "stunner" were Landry not to be dealt. We agree. The Dolphins have been telegraphing for a year that they did not want or expect to re-sign Landry. They would be nearly crippled in free agency by Landry's salary cap number under the franchise tag. The brain trust is clearly confident it can work out a trade.
Feb 26 - 2:36 PM

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, it would be a "stunner" if the Dolphins did not trade franchise player Jarvis Landry in the next few weeks.

Per Beasley, the Dolphins remain "open" to signing Landry to a long-term deal but a trade remains the "likeliest outcome." The Ravens should be in the mix for Landry after attempting to trade for him last year. Beasley also mentioned the Browns, who own six of top 65 picks in the upcoming draft, and the 49ers as possible suitors. If the Dolphins can't trade Landry in the coming weeks, it would severely limit their options in free agency.
Feb 23 - 2:47 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport mentioned the Titans, Panthers, Saints, and Bears as teams that could be interested in a trade for franchise player Jarvis Landry.

The Titans were the first team out of RapSheet's mouth, while the other three clubs were kind of thrown out there at the end. Tennessee GM Jon Robinson has had a penchant for big trades since taking the job and needs a slot receiver after Eric Decker completely flopped as a free-agent pickup. The Titans do have sophomore Taywan Taylor as an option, but Landry would give Marcus Mariota a reliable safety blanket with Corey Davis and Rishard Matthews on the outside. Carolina and Chicago obviously also need plenty of help at receiver.
