The Miami Dolphins are looking at all possibilities to improve their team. Hours after news broke that they would be acquiring Robert Quinn in a proposed deal with the Los Angeles Rams, the Dolphins are discussing another deal.

Jarvis Landry, who has been franchise tagged by the Dolphins, is being mentioned in a trade with the Chicago Bears, according to NBC Sports Chicago’s John Mullin. The Chicago reporter is reporting these two teams have discussed a blockbuster deal.

Landry and the eighth overall pick in April’s NFL Draft would go to the Bears. In exchange, the Dolphins would receive Jordan Howard, the 11th overall pick, and a third-round pick.

The Bears would get a top receiver, which they desperately need in head coach Matt Nagy and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich’s new system. It would also help quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who will be entering his second-year in the league in 2018.

Kendall Wright was the Bears leading receiver last season with 614 yards. He also had one touchdown.

Howard, 23, has been a bright spot for the team the past two seasons. He has had 2,435 rushing yards, including two touchdowns.

Landry, who the Dolphins hope to trade despite the franchise tag, is 25-years-old. He has had 4,038 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns in four seasons in Miami.

He had a career-high 112 receptions and nine touchdowns last season. However, for the second-time in his career, he had less than 1,000 receiving yards, as he ended the 2017 campaign with 987 yards in 16 games.

His career-best season, in terms of yardage, came in 2015 when he had 1,157 yards.

Landry’s contract status is the thing that’s hoping up any potential deal. He says he will not play under the franchise deal and would like to receive a long-term deal.
