Jarvis Landry is coming off his most productive receiving game of the season, but the Miami Dolphins are still figuring out how to approach his next contract. ESPN’s Dan Graziano pointed to the growing complications in his weekly article, and had this to say about Landry’s situation with the Dolphins:

Landry also will be an unrestricted free agent at 25. He's on pace for 107 catches but just 907 yards, and his status as a slot/possession receiver in Miami's offense is part of the reason he and the team haven't been able to agree on his contract value. Production-wise, Landry's first four years put him among some of the best in the league, meaning he should be looking for something in the range of $14 million or so per year. But the Dolphins have Kenny Stills on a long-term contract and a first-round pick invested in DeVante Parker, and they'd prefer to pay Landry as a slot receiver. If they can't agree, Landry will hit the market. Sunday was his biggest yardage day of the year, with 95. And he has scored a touchdown in each of his past three games.

Landry has been an integral part of Miami’s offense since being selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. The former LSU standout has 355 receptions in a Dolphins uniform, and has been selected to the Pro Bowl twice.
