Tannehill : Teammate Jarvis Landry needs to balance emotions
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Ryan Tannehill says Miami Dolphins teammate Jarvis Landry needs to be careful in striking a balance between his fiery style of play and being out of control.
Landry drew a $24,309 fine two weeks ago for an illegal block that Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan described as a dirty play. And at times the Dolphins receiver becomes demonstrative in showing frustration on the sideline.
After four games, Landry ranked second in the NFL in receptions with 31 receptions. In the past four games he has 18 receptions.
Miami (4-4) has won three games in a row while adopting a run-oriented approach, but coach Adam Gase and offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said this week they need to do a better job of getting the ball to Landry.
