According to a report from The Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec, the Baltimore Ravens attempted to acquire Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry during last offseason. However, the price was a bit too steep for Baltimore’s liking:

Landry has been a productive receiver for the Dolphins, since being drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Since joining the league, he has caught 400 passes, totaling 4038 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns in four seasons.

Landry’s best two seasons (yardage-wise) came during the 2015 and 2016 seasons, where he finished with 1157 receiving yards and 1136 receiving yards, respectively. In 2017, he finished with his highest touchdown mark (9) of his career.

If Landry was a Raven in 2017, he would have lead the team in receptions (112), receiving yards (987) and receiving touchdowns (9). Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace was the closest in terms of receiving yards, finishing with 748 yards and tied with tight end Ben Watson for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (4). Watson lead Baltimore in receptions (61).

With Landry set to become a free agent, it’s a possibility that Baltimore will try to reach out to his camp. He will command a hefty salary and wants somewhere in the neighborhood of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant’s $14 million per season, according to The Phinsider’s Justin Hier. Baltimore is expected to have $10,995,225 in cap space next season and they will have to make space for Landry, if they are serious about getting his services.
