Jarvis Landry is now under contract with the Miami Dolphins Rex Burkhead Jersey
, easing the path to a potential trade.
The three-time Pro Bowl receiver signed his $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday, a person familiar with the situation said. The person confirmed the signing to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins hadn't announced it.
The Dolphins have been shopping Landry, and the procedural move allows them to trade him as early as next Wednesday, when the NFL's new year begins.
Miami gave Landry the franchise tag last month. He made $894,000 last season Nate Solder Jersey
, when he led the NFL with 112 catches.
Landry has said he wanted to remain with the Dolphins, and they said they wanted him back. But the parties have been unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal, and Landry's volatile personality has become a cause for concern in Miami.
The franchise tag allows Landry to sign an offer sheet with another team. The Dolphins could match that offer, and if Landry leaves, they would receive two first-round picks from his new team.
More likely is another team working out a contract extension with Landry and then trading for him.
He has been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and has 400 career receptions, a record for a fourth-year player.
On the eve of their season opener Marshall Newhouse Jersey
, the Arizona Cardinals have signed star running back David Johnson to a three-year contract extension.
Johnson, who led the NFL in yards from scrimmage and touchdowns two seasons ago but missed all but one game a year ago with a fractured left wrist, had held out during the team's minicamp but expressed optimism during training camp that a deal would get done.
The contract, announced by the team in a news release Saturday night, runs through the 2021 season. Arizona opens its season at home against the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Johnson was drafted in the third round out of Northern Iowa in 2016 and figures to be the centerpiece of the offense under new coach Steve Wilks, who wants to emphasize a power running game.
Johnson also is a gifted receiver and has set a goal of 1 Irving Fryar Jersey
,000 yards rushing and 1,000 receiving.
Two years ago, the dynamic running back rushed for 1,239 yards and caught 80 passes for 879 yards. He scored 20 touchdowns, 16 rushing and four receiving, earning first-team All-Pro honors.
In that breakout year DeForest Buckner Jersey
, Johnson became the first player in NFL history to top 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the first 15 games of the season and may have done it in the 16th had he not injured a knee.
The injury in last season's opener wiped out the rest of the 2017 and, Johnson acknowledged, reduced his leverage in his hope for a new contract. Johnson would have become a free agent at the end of this season.
