The Dolphins made a bold decision when they traded away Jarvis Landry this off-season especially since Miami only received a 2018 fourth round pick and a 2019 seventh round selection. There’s no way those two late round talents are going to replace Jarvis Landry and you have to wonder what the Dolphins front office was thinking? No player gave this team more on game day than number 14 did. It’s extremely arrogant to think you can just part ways with Landry and walk away with a better roster. To be honest it’s not just Jarvis Landry’s playmaking abilities that will be missed either. Landry lit a fire under every single player in that locker room and he raises the bar. Adam Gase feels like he can implement system guys like Danny Amendola to minimize the loss of Landry. However Tom Brady isn’t in Miami and you better believe the Patriots quarterback extended a lot of people’s career’s up there in Foxborough. To make matters even worse for the Phins Landy has been pumping out highlight reel catches all throughout Browns camp. A lot of people like to knock this guy because they think he is slow. However Jarvis Landry has looked every bit like a receiver who has averaged 100 catches and 1,000 yards per year. That’s a level of output that’s not easily replaced and it’s very unlikely things pan out in Miami’s favor. Cleveland on the other hand is going to struggle as well but at least they’ll have Landry to help dig them out of the hole. There’s nobody you’d rather have in the trenches next to you then Landry and he was worth every penny no matter what the Dolphins had to pay him. It’s just not a good football move to let go of players like that and now the fans in South Florida are the ones who will suffer.
