It's no surprise to anyone that the new Miami Dolphins wide receiver corps is exciting a lot of Dolphins fans with their versatility, but now we know that it's not just the fans that are excited, the players themselves are too.
Second-year player Jarvis Landry, who has quickly become a household name for all Dolphins fans, spoke to the New Orleans Times-Picayune in a recent interview that he was excited about the opportunity to play alongside the former New Orleans Saint, Kenny Stills.
“I was excited. I was excited to have another weapon alongside me and another group of guys." Landry said in the interview. “As the Dolphins, we’ve always been known as a .500 team. Can’t get over the hump. Can’t make the playoffs. As many weapons as we can add, I’m really appreciative of it because it allows us to be that much more successful.”
As well as helping the team out, Landry has acknowledged that the addition of the young veteran receiver, Kenny Stills, will have a significant impact on how he plays his own game as well.
“Just his downfield threat. I think his speed doesn’t go unnoticed. His speed, his ability to stretch the field for me, and him being versatile. Being able to make plays in the redzone." Landry said. "I think that’s going to allow me to be successful in the immediate and eventually lead to some big plays.”
But while all that is true, the former LSU Tiger has made it abundantly clear that he isn't really interested in making sure his own numbers are good. What he's focused on most is making sure the team is successful, and that's what he wants to be known for.
"You know for me just as much as my success matters," Landry said. "The team's success matters most.”
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you a true leader.
