The Splash Zone 2/21/18: Jarvis Landry Gets The Franchise Tag

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC vs AFC Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins have placed the franchise take on Jarvis Landry. The wide receiver has been tagged with the non-exlusive tag which allows Landry to sign a one year deal. However, this doesn’t mean that Landry will be back with the Dolphins next season. He can still sign an offer sheet and if the Dolphins don’t match that, they will be compensated (believe two first round picks?) if Landry leaves. There is also the possibility of a trade.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
