Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry will be part of the upcoming Pro Bow in Hawaii, after all.

Landry was name on Tuesday, as the injury replacement for DeAndre Hopkins of the Texans, and will be on the AFC roster for the upcoming NFL All-Star match-up in Orlando.

Landry had been passed over in December, despite he tremendous year with receptions. Once the regular season ended Landry had an NFL leading 112 receptions. He also now has the distinction of having the most receptions in the first four years of an NFL career with 400 catches.

As we wrote, there should be no debate about bringing back arguably the Dolphins most dynamic weapon on offense. Miami elected not to pick up the fifth year option for 2018 on his original rookie contract.

Under the CBA, the Dolphins can re-sign Landry at any point before free agency begins. They also have the option of placing the “franchise tag” on him, which will assure him of making at least $15 million ,and perhaps more, in 2018.

Back to the awarding of Pro Bowl recognition. Landry gets to go for the third consecutive year and joins Mark Clayton (1984-86), as the only other Dolphin wideout to receive the recognition three consecutive seasons.

That is company that is not too shabby.
