Miami Dolphins trade Jarvis Landry to Cleveland Browns, reports say

The Dolphins franchise-tagged Landry, because they didn't want to lose the receiver without getting compensation.

One of the likely suitors for Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry due to their ample cap space, the downtrodden Cleveland Browns have apparently acquired their guy. NFL Media's Ian Rapoport says the Dolphins will receive one pick in 2018 and one in 2019.

This means the receiver can now be traded as early as March 14, although a deal hasn't materialized.

The trade suggests that Landry's representatives and the Browns are closing in on a long-term contract extension. It could require sending a third-round pick to Miami in order to pry away Landry from the Dolphins.

The Ravens and Browns were among the teams interested.

Landry, who was selected 63rd overall out of LSU in the 2014 Draft, led the National Football League in receptions in 2017 with 112 catches for 987 yards and earned Pro Bowl honors for the third consecutive season.
