By trading Landry?
A franchise mistake? No, we can be upset our fan favorites move on but this is not a franchise mistake by trading or resigning him.
It’s just a slot WR. Geez
Ultimately results will define how bad or good of a deal this was.
People gladly took a 2nd for Welker and years later act like It was the worst trade in NFL history.
Trading Wes Welker ended up being one, but that's mostly because we traded him in the division to the damn Patriots who turned him into a HOF candidate. I don't see Jarvis biting us like that, but it still sucks to trade away one of the best drafted players we've developed in decades. For compensation that will most likely end up nowhere near his value...
They've been doing that for years man. Dolphins just be Dolphinsing.
NO! Glad it's over.
We weren't that great with him so you can't really say that it was an all time more dumb than passing on Brees. But its up there in the pantheon of st00pid LOLphin moves
Obviously no. Smartest thing this franchise has done in years is not to severely over-pay that emotive little man. Andnow perhaps even more firepower to move up, if needed, to replace the numpty that would have been throwing to him. Clean the rot out.
Only time will tell..........
well whatever chip he had on his shoulder just got a hell of a lot bigger
By default this means we will see more of Carroo and Grant, which I am looking forward to.
People forget that we’ve been at the bottom of the league in offense for years now. I’m not downplaying Landry or what he brought to the table, but he was on those offenses.
Hell the fact that we got two picks in return is pretty surprising. He priced himself off this team and our return could have very easily been a high round compensation pick. I’m not happy about him leaving but I think we made the best out of a difficult situation. So no, not a franchise mistake IMO.
No. Landry caught a lot of passes for few yards and few TDs. Ultimately no big loss. If anything we saved the franchise by holding the line on ridiculous contracts for once.
Landry had fire which I loved but did not help us win games. We moved on freeing up $16 million. I'm happy.
Depends on whether or not the picks are used to move up for a QB. That's now all I care about. Anything else they do in the draft and I'll hate it.
If they plan on patching holes and going for it this season, then yes -- stupidity. If that's the plan you don't trade your ONLY consistent performer on offense.
From an economic standpoint, NO. There is a salary cap and each team has to make hard decisions on how the money is distributed. He was one of my favorite players, but frankly not worth more than 10-11million. He was offered 13 million and he declined it. Nothing the team can do about it.
Every team loses good players when their demands are excessive. Some people act as if this is unique to the Dolphins and rip Tannenbaum. Look around the league.
If Landry really wanted to be here, he and his agent would have negotiated fairly with the Dolphins. This appears to be an ego thing with Landry and it is about money. His buddy OBJ has already declared publicly that he will be seeking 20 mill.
If he has a hard line stance, he won’t be a Giant much longer.
Teams should be signing big deals to franchise QBs and to elite type players. Landry is very good, but he’s not elite.
Bess, Hartline, Landry…….DVP next to Cleveland…...
Who is now going to take over the routine of catching a first down, standing straight up like a statue pointing straight up with his index finger and then robotically tilting it sideways indicating a first down?
No. Hell no.
He's a slot receiver.
Don't be silly.
Don't forget the screen passes where he jukes 5 times while trying to evade the defender and only gets 4 yards. Good times.
Landry was a high effort player that did bring a spark and toughness.
He aint worth 16M though.
Now he can count his money sitting in the bowels of Cleveland Stadium.
Money was all he cared about.
Gase’s offense schemes got him open. I don’t see how it won’t help other players. Everyone said the same thing when Ajayi got traded, yet our rush offense improved. I expect the pass offense get better once we stop forcing a ball to one guy when a majority of the catches don’t do anything.
Better yet.... Who is now going to take over the routine of actually picking up a first down?
I wouldn't be mad about Landry if Parker balled out last season, or if Carroo showed a single sign of promise.
Not even close
I am very excited to see Grant get some more of those screen passes. Kid is electric in open space.
They must be thrilled on Brownsheaven forum tonight huh?
I think he's a great player who wanted more money than he's worth. Is it a mistake to get rid of him? Only if you can't use that money properly to improve the team. And since we're the Dolphins, yes it's a mistake.
Considering that this franchise has cornered the market on mistakes ever since Jimmy Johnson left, it's hard to say any new mistake is an all-time mistake.
LOve this so called mistake!
No one. That's when special teams comes on to punt. Lol.
Nope.... It just shows you that he's all about the money and ONLY Cleveland was desperate enough to trade 2 picks for a slot WR that had less than 1000 yards last year AND pay him probably around 14 million a year. I think we were lucky to get anyone willing to make that trade.
No. All time mistakes include keeping Tom Olivadotti around, drafting Guys like Eric Kumerow, Rick Graf, Sammie Smith, and John Bosa when Marino was in his prime, not picking Randy Moss, signing Culpepper over Drew Brees, Dion Jordan, Cam Cameron, Joe Philbin, so on and so forth...
Who's going to represent us in dodgeball now?
And catch footballs falling from drones in the sky??????
No, I think you got the Landry trade confused with the Brees-Culpooper failure about ten years ago.
The most beloved slot receiver of all time
