Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s just more Jarvis Landry news. The wide receiver finally signed the franchise tag. It’s a one year deal for $15.982 million and this also means the team cannot rescind the tag. The Dolphins are already over the cap and this tag is not going to help their efforts. Whether they trade or give Landry a new contract, expect quite a few roster moves to free up some cap space.
