As Jarvis Landry enters the final season of his current deal with the Miami Dolphins, the veteran wide receiver isn't yet concerning himself with a potential extension.

The Dolphins and Landry have been discussing a long-term deal, but so far, nothing is done.

Head coach Adam Gase said during the offseason that he expected Landry to report for the voluntary workouts, not letting his contract situation stop him from being the leader of the receiver corps.

The former LSU standout hasn't been stubborn, participating in organized team activities amid an era where players will frequently hold out with contracts looming. We've talked back and forth but there's nothing really going on. "We're just really focusing on right now today". He has been one of the NFL's best bargains based on production.

The assumed breakout for quarterback Ryan Tannehill hinges on the 5-foot-11 receiver, who has caught more than 200 balls for 2,293 yards and eight touchdowns spanning the last two seasons.

The Dolphins said this offseason that extending Landry is a priority.

Landry is confident and hopeful that he will be next.

Landry didn't shy away from saying that he wants that extension on Wednesday, but he also said it isn't the biggest thing in his mind as the team moves closer to the end of their offseason program. "I'm at the point of my life where I'm set".

"Last year, they just told me continue to do the right things", Jones continued. "I'm more focused on trying to help my team get to a Super Bowl, week in and week out playing hard and playing together". I can't be one of those guys that sit out or not show up and just bring bad whatever to the organization. "For me, I know that I need to be here".

Landry was recently ranked the 42nd best player in the league, according to an NFL Network poll taken by fellow players.

Jones skipped some of the early offseason program work previous year as he was looking for a new contract, but the Dolphins eventually talked him back to the team, telling him they would take care of him.

"Not enough", Landry said.
