One of the things the Miami Dolphins will likely do at the NFL scouting combine, which begins Tuesday in Indianapolis, is gauge wide receiver Jarvis Landry’s trade value. And although the rules say the Dolphins would be owed two first-round picks in a trade for Landry, they could get significantly less. Miami has placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Landry. That means Landry is free to negotiate with other teams and sign an offer sheet. The Dolphins have the right to match the offer. It’s important to note the Dolphins can’t trade Landry until he signs their offer sheet. It’s also important to note the team that signs Landry to an offer sheet could work out any trade compensation with Miami the two teams find workable. In other words, the Dolphins won’t necessarily receive two first-round picks if they trade Landry.
