What we should — or shouldn't — conclude from Landry's latest swipe at Tannehill

Miami Herald Sports 2 months ago

Ten notes and thoughts as the Dolphins conclude their offseason program on Thursday:

Memo to Jarvis Landry: You really should resist any inclination to talk about Ryan Tannehill. We know you don’t think he’s as good as the quarterbacks you have now in Cleveland (Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield). We know you wish he – and the coaches – would have thrown you more deep balls.

But Landry’s mild belittling of Tannehill isn’t merely unnecessary, it’s unbecoming. Landry assuredly would flip if Tannehill made similar comments about him.

Landry’s latest remark, to NFL Network on Wednesday: “I have not heard from Tannehill. I’m not surprised. We didn’t really have a good relationship.”

So should we draw any grand conclusions from this, that Tannehill is disliked or isn’t a good leader?

Absolutely not.

Both publicly and privately, teammates in recent weeks have gone out of their way to rave about Tannehill – some solicited but some unsolicited, too.

I know of at least one offensive player on the team that Tannehill has made a point to text this offseason, to offer encouragement and make sure he’s working on his game.

Multiple teammates have said Tannehill called players to organize informal throwing sessions before the offseason program – contradicting Landry’s claim that Tannehill didn't do that.
