NFL: Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Jarvis Landry may have received the franchise tag, but that doesn’t mean he will be with the Miami Dolphins next season. There is speculation around this move as some believe the wide receiver could still be on the trade block and moved to a different team. The Dolphins would like to keep Landry at a reasonable price and if he left for free agency, the team wouldn’t be compensated. With the tag, the team can choose to trade the slot receiver or rent him for a year, but with a high price tag.
