The Miami Dolphins are trying to decide what Jarvis Landry is worth, and the impending free agent isn't happy about how the franchise has handled the process.

"My agent and I talked about being a leader and setting a good example, so I silenced all those things by going to OTAs and training camp, by putting the team first and being a team guy", Landry said. "I feel like in the National Football League, they preach loyalty and family and they have none for you".

In interviews with Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Landry and his agent, Damarius Bilbo, explained why the star receiver's frustration is growing as his potential foray into unrestricted free agency come March looms on the horizon. As a player, you see it's not a family during negotiations, how it becomes them versus me or me versus them. Landry then followed with a counteroffer but has yet to recieve a response from the team.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Landry said he understands that the National Football League is a business but is frustrated with the front office. Landry called that "disrespectful" and wonders how that sends a message that the team wants him back in 2018.

"I feel like in the National Football League, they preach loyalty and family and they have none for you".

"I've got so many mixed emotions", Landry said. "I am at peace. Regardless of if I am a Dolphin next year or not, my hard work will pay off". The three-time Pro Bowl player had an NFL-leading 112 receptions for 987 yards and nine touchdowns this season.
