A report emerged on Sunday that the Miami Dolphins are listening to trade offers for receiver Jarvis Landry. Not surprisingly, another report disputes that as even a remote possibility right now.
The first report was from Michael Lombardi of The Ringer. He reported the Dolphins would “seriously listen” to trade offers for the two-time Pro Bowler.
Said this on my GM Street podcast @RingerPodcasts in May. Miami will listen to offers on Jarvis Landry and seriously listen.

However, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk had something completely different to report on the matter Sunday afternoon.
“Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Dolphins are not listening to trade offers, and that the suggestion is ‘zero percent’ accurate.”
Florio did say the Dolphins got an inquiry about a potential trade last year, but “talks never went anywhere, because the Dolphins want to keep Landry around.”
It’s not surprising that Miami would want to keep Landry, who has caught an NFL record 288 passes in his first three seasons with the club. Landry has turned those catches into 3,051 yards and 13 touchdowns and is one of the emotional leaders on Miami’s roster.
DeVante Parker has seen the most immediate boon stemming from Jay Cutler’s reunion with Adam Gase. But Landry will receive plenty of targets in this offense, too. Cutler will benefit from having both young receivers at his disposal, and the Dolphins would need quite a haul to get rid of the former LSU product to begin with.
