Reports: Miami Dolphins not listening to trade offers for Jarvis Landry
Former LSU star receiver Jarvis Landry has been the subject of many rumors this offseason after former NFL executive Mike Lombardi floated the idea earlier this year.
“Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Dolphins are not listening to trade offers, and that the suggestion is ‘zero percent’ accurate,” PFT’s Mike Florio reported Sunday.
Said this on my GM Street podcast @RingerPodcasts in May. Miami will listen to offers on Jarvis Landry and seriously listen.

The Post’s Hal Habib had a similar report:
Multiple sources shot down speculation that the Dolphins are listening to offers for Landry, possibly from the Cleveland Browns. “Zero,” one source said of the chances Landry will be shipped out.
Landry’s rookie contract expires after this season, and after the signing of Jay Cutler for $10 million, the Dolphins lost salary cap flexibility, Habib reported. Florio reported potential trade partners view Landry as a one-year rental unless they manage to sign him to a long-term deal or apply the franchise tag.
One theory for the trade is the Dolphins would prefer to move forward with first-round pick DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. With just 13 touchdowns in four seasons, Landry also hasn’t produced to the level the Dolphins would prefer.
