DAVIE—Breaking 1,000 yards might be a big deal to most wide receivers, but Dolphins standout Jarvis Landry is dazzled by that number anymore.
Landry, who goes into Saturday’s game at the Jets with 923 yards, knows he’ll get there soon. When he does, he’ll be the eighth Miami player to get there and sixth to do it back-to-back.
But no big deal.
“As long as we get the win, I’m sure it’ll come,” he said. “I’ll be in there somewhere.”
Does it matter to him?
“Of course, but it’s honestly one of those things I don’t really pay attention to,” Landry said. “I kind of expect it. It’s more the victory. Those personal things will come.”
Landry closed out last year with 1,157 yards and four touchdowns on 110 catches. This season he’s at 923 and two on 79. His 273 catches mark the NFL record for most receptions in the first three years of a player’s career. Fellow third-year player and former Landry college teammate Odell Beckham is at 266.
Sidenote: Landry had a good quote on what it’s like to be playing meaningful games in December.
“If you’re a Miami fan, you’ve been looking forward to it for a long time,” he said. “Just being here and seeing how things have evolved and where we’ve come from to where we’re in position to be headed to, it’s amazing. It’s something that definitely makes you jump out of bed in the morning and come to work with a smile on your face.”
