Jarvis Landry Won't Discuss New Deal With Dolphins Once Season Starts

Jul 11, 2017 10:54 AM

Jarvis Landry would like to land a new contract with the Miami Dolphins, but he won't discuss one once the season kicks off.

"I want to focus," Landry said. "I believe that Miami is where I want to be. Miami is the place I call home. I want to be able to give my all mentally, physically and emotionally this season.

"Once the season starts I just want to put all that behind me and win the Super Bowl."

Landry's base salary is less than $900,000 in the final year of his rookie deal, making him one of the most underpaid players in football. He has more catches over his first three seasons (288) than any other receiver in NFL history.

Ryan Tannehill: Dolphins Offense Best I've Played On

Jul 5, 2017 9:56 AM

Ryan Tannehill believes the Miami Dolphins will feature a high-powered offense this season.

The Dolphins went 10-6 in their first season under Adam Gase.

"Honestly, I can say it's definitely the most talent we've had with the receiving corps, bringing everyone back, having a second year together in the same offense," Tannehill told The Miami Herald. "That's going to be huge for us. Adding [tight ends] Julius Thomas and Anthony Fasano, veterans who have played a lot of football, is [big]. Bringing back [running backs] Jay [Ajayi], Kenyan Drake.

"Keeping most of the offensive line together, adding a few pieces. Putting Laremy Tunsil back at his natural position. That's going to be huge for us. You start to stack all those pieces together and we have a good unit. Now it's a matter of being able to elevate our play throughout the season. Just because you have good pieces doesn't mean you're going to perform. That's what the onus was on all spring. That's what it's on throughout the summer. As we hit training camp, it's pushing each other each and every day to go out and be great. Not just be good, but really be great."

Dolphins Wanted To Sign Peyton Manning After Ryan Tannehill Injury

Jun 24, 2017 2:51 PM

The Miami Dolphins reached out to Peyton Manning immediately after Ryan Tannehill's knee injury last December.

Adam Gase worked with Manning during their time together with the Denver Broncos.

“He said, ‘Hey 18, [Ryan] Tannehill went down,'” Archie Manning said. “[Gase] said, ‘I think he’s going to miss some time. The first question I’m going to get at the press conference in the morning is if I’m going to try to bring you to Miami. What do you want me to tell them?'”

Said Archie: “The text message came back from Peyton, ‘You tell them I could probably come play, but there’s no way I can miss carpool the next two weeks.’ So, he was done.”

Jarvis Landry Gives Dolphins Deadline On Extension

Jun 20, 2017 1:51 PM

The agent for Jarvis Landry put a deadline of start of the regular season on a contract extneion.

Landry will “absolutely not” be angry if no deal is reached, according to his agent.

Landry has one year left on his contract that will pay him $893,850 this season, less money than at least 100 other NFL receivers will earn in 2017.

“The ball is still in their court; we are happy to go into a fourth year healthy and eager to put another year in the books,” agent Damarius Bilbo said.

Ndamukong Suh: Dolphins Have 'Never Been Scared' of Patriots

Jun 15, 2017 2:49 PM

The New England Patriots have won all but one division title since 2003, but Ndamukong Suh says the Miami Dolphins aren't scared of their AFC East rival.

"I think we respect all opponents we have, we obviously start the season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and look forward to that," Suh said when asked how much he focuses on the Patriots.

"We have many games prior to [the Patriots] that are going to be big focuses. But we understand that New England is at the top of the East right now. We understand that we need to have certain particular game plans for them, as they do for us. Taking that into account, I think one of the great things about Miami and this team, we've never been scared of the New England Patriots. We never will be. So, with that being said, when we play them late in the season, we'll be prepared."

Miami is the one team to disrupt New England run of division titles, taking the crown in 2008. The Dolphins also split contests from 2013 to 2015.

Peyton Manning Urged Dolphins To Trade For Julius Thomas

May 8, 2017 5:03 PM

The Miami Dolphins asked Peyton Manning about Julius Thomas before acquiring him from the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen has coached Manning and reached out for his opinion on the tight end.

"[Manning] talked a lot about [Thomas asking], 'Would you stay out and help me with this? Take me through this. Would you watch a little tape with me? Would you explain what you want on this?' And he still does the same thing. I’'l see him in Coach Gase's office and his questions are right. His questions and his process are right, which as a coach, [is what] you're looking for," Christensen said.

Thomas made the Pro Bowl in his two seasons as a starter with the Denver Broncos, when Manning was the quarterback.

Stephen Ross Gave Dolphins OK To Take A Knee

Apr 4, 2017 8:01 AM

Stephen Ross told Miami Dolphins players before last season's opener that taking a stand by taking a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick was fine.

Michael Thomas said after explaining his concerns to Ross, the owner replied: "I've got y'all's back 100 percent."

"I remember that like it was yesterday," the defensive back said. "With everything racing through our minds, trying to decide if that was something we would actually go through with, of taking a knee. ... September 11th -- that's a whole different aspect.

"I saw Mr. Ross come in the locker room. I'm going up to him, trying to explain to him in a way, letting him know, like, 'Look, we're thinking about doing this, thinking about taking a knee.' And for him to stop me and say, 'Look, Mike, whatever y'all choose to do today, I've got y'all's back 100 percent' -- that’s a testament to what type of person he is, how he truly feels about equality for all, and the efforts he's made with the RISE program. It's great to have the owner of the Dolphins have that perspective.

"It'd be great to see more owners take after him."

The RISE program (the Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality) was founded by the owner in 2015 to use his sports platform for social causes.

Dolphins Waive Dion Jordan After Failed Physical

Mar 31, 2017 8:56 PM

The Miami Dolphins waived former 2013 first-round pick Dion Jordan on Friday after he failed a physical.

The move will save the Dolphins $4.225 million in salary for 2017.

The Dolphins moved up from No. 12 to No. 3 four years ago to select Jordan out of Oregon.

 Jordan had just three career sacks and multiple NFL suspensions for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He hasn't played in a game since the 2014 season.

The Dolphins kept Jordan under contract the past two years because of his potential.
