Jarvis Landry and his agent must be smiling today.

NBC’s Cris Collinsworth, who has a stake in Pro Football Focus, released a graphic declaring Landry as the “most dangerous slot receiver” in the NFL.

The graphic says Landry caught 856 yards worth of passes while lined up in the slot last season, more than the 745 by Indianapolis’ T.Y. Hilton (745), the No. 2 man on the list.

An article on Pro Football Focus’ site goes on to say Landry’s 65 receptions out of the slot led the league last season.

That’s timely news for Landry since he and the Dolphins will try to hammer out a long-term contract that would keep him in Miami and avoid any free-agent bidding war next year. No progress has been made toward that goal, a league source tells our Joe Schad.

Of course, Landry’s worth to the team has been no secret. He has topped 1,100 yards and 90 receptions each of the past two seasons and shared the Dolphins’ MVP honors with safety Reshad Jones in 2015. He also has been in the past two Pro Bowls.
