Ravens players trying to recruit Jarvis Landry
Jarvis Landry is set to become a free agent this offseason if the Miami Dolphins don’t re-sign him or use the franchise tag on him, and the recruitment of the star wide receiver has already begun.
On Saturday, Landry sent a cryptic tweet that two Baltimore Ravens players felt presented an opportunity. Safeties Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson replied by basically telling Landry to sign with their team.

Interestingly enough, it was around this time a year ago that Weddle pulled a similar recruiting tactic with Jefferson, who ended up signing with Baltimore.
any safeties you would love to play with??????

If Landry does hit the open market, there will be no shortage of interest in the 25-year-old. His agent has said he wants to be paid like a No. 1 receiver, and the Ravens could use one of those with Mike Wallace headed for free agency and Jeremy Maclin possibly on the verge of being cut.
Landry caught 112 passes for 987 yards and nine touchdowns last season. With his domestic violence case seemingly in the rearview, he is going to get paid.
