Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry reported to the facility in Davie for voluntary off-season workouts, which began Monday.
Landry and the Dolphins would like to work out a long-term contract but haven’t been able to do so yet.
Landry said, “football players don’t hold out from football things,” according to a league source.
The Dolphins have tweeted a video which showed Landry and some teammates reporting.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase said at the NFL owner’s meetings in Phoenix that he expected Landry to report.
Landry is scheduled to earn $1.1 million in the fourth year of his NFL contract.
The Dolphins may be looking at Doug Baldwin’s contract as a comparable ($11.5 million/season) and Landry may be thinking his deal should exceed T.Y. Hilton’s deal ($13 million/season), thus creating the rub.
Perhaps a long-term deal around $13 million will be a landing spot, with both sides wanting a long-term marriage.
