2018 NFL free agents: Spotrac projects gaudy contract for Jarvis Landry

If Dolphins slot receiver Jarvis Landry tests the waters of free agency next month, he’s probably going to like what he hears.

There should be at least several teams lining up for a shot at a 25-year-old who averaged more than 1,000 yards and 100 catches over the last season. Using a variety of factors, the sports finance website Spotrac projects his market value at a deal worth $69 million over five years. That’s an average of $13.8 million per year, which sounds reasonable.

The main comparisons Spotrac used to determine a price tag Landry were contracts signed by Houston’s DeAndre Hopkins, Indianapolis’ T.Y. Hilton, the Los Angeles Chargers’ Keenan Allen and Cincinnati’s A.J. Green.

Those deals were signed between 2015 and ’17 and came out to an average salary of $13.9 million.

The most recent one was Hopkins’, which was worth $81 million over five years. He had $36.5 million of that guaranteed. That contract came after Hopkins put up 317 catches, 4,487 yards and 23 touchdowns in his first four years.
