Dolphins Wide Out Jarvis Landry Says He Wants to Be in Miami in 2018

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who is in the fourth and final year of his contract, said Wednesday that he wants to play for the Dolphins next season. But it wasn’t an unconditional statement, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

“Of course,” he said. “I love Miami. My family’s here in Miami. The fan base is here in Miami. The relationships, this building, this organization, I want to be here. I’ve always believed in being a guy that plays for one team. With that, I hope that opportunity presents itself.

“But obviously getting what you deserve and everything, this is what I work for. So we’ll see.”

Landry, the two-time Pro Bowl selection, has 103 receptions for 895 yards and eight touchdowns this season. The touchdown total is a career best and Landry needs eight receptions to establish a franchise and career best in that category, eclipsing the 110 receptions he had in 2015.

Landry said such a mark would be meaningful.

“It’s everything, honestly,” he said. “To make history, and then re-write your own history, that means everything. Of course that’s a tremendous accomplishment.

“And it’s a testament to the hard work that I’ve put in, to my teammates helping me, my coaches allowing me to make the plays. It’s paid off. It’s paid off, and numbers don’t lie.”
