DAVIE — Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry and running back Jay Ajayi are first-team NFL Pro Bowl alternates, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

Christensen, not surprisingly, believed each player should be a Pro Bowler.

Landry was bypassed in favor of Antonio Brown, Amari Cooper, A.J. Green and T.Y. Hilton.

“Jarvis and Jay have had Pro Bowl years,” Christensen said. “I was surprised. I was disappointed. One of the thing it points out for me is we’ve got to keep going and get the respect for this franchise and this team.”

Ajayi was bypassed in favor of Le’Veon Bell, DeMarco Murray and LeSean McCoy.

“Jay was a big key at jump-starting this thing, when we were sitting there at 1-4,” Christensen said. “And he’ll be a big reason if we have success in these last two games.

Landry is fourth in the AFC with 82 catches for 1,031 yards.

Ajayi is sixth in the AFC with 1,007 yards.

Landry has had 1,000 yards receiving in consecutive years. No Miami Dolphins receiver has ever accomplished the feat in three consecutive seasons.

Mark Duper, Mark Clayton, Brandon Marshall, Brian Hartline, Irving Fryar and Landry has done it twice.

Landry was a Pro Bowl alternate last season and caught a 31-yard touchdown pass.

Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake are Miami’s Pro Bowlers.
