The Miami Dolphins have signed rookie wide receiver Jarvis Landry to a four-year contract, the team announced Thursday. Landry, Miami's second-round choice and the 63rd overall player taken, is the highest pick from Miami’s draft class to sign.

Landry is in a three-way competition to become the Dolphins' slot receiver. The rookie must beat out veterans Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews for playing time. The rookie from LSU is also competing on various special-teams units.

The Dolphins signing Landry could set the table for first-round pick Ja'Wuan James, who remains unsigned. Based on the rookie wage scale, James is slotted to receive a four-year contract worth about $8.4 million with a fifth-year option.
