He has been named to three Pro Bowls in four National Football League seasons and caught more than 100 passes twice and never less than 84 in a year.

Jarvis Landry's days with the Miami Dolphins are reportedly over.

Landry signed the franchise tender with the Dolphins this week. Landry posted just 8.8 yards per catch previous year, by far the lowest of any receiver who has ever topped 100 receptions. But the Dolphins did not want to commit to Landry long-term because he was seeking a contract in the neighborhood of $14 million a season. At least five teams expressed interest in Landry, including the Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. That allowed the team to explore trade options for the 25-year-old, who has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons. That would give him the sixth-highest contract in the National Football League, just behind the likes of Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green, but ahead of Julio Jones, Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas.

The Miami Dolphins on Friday agreed to trade Landry to the Browns.
