Miami Dolphins star wide receiver Jarvis Landry is one of the bright, young pass catchers in the NFL and now the biggest offensive weapon on his team after running back Jay Ajayi was dealt to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday. 

With just a few hours remaining until the NFL's 4 p.m. ET trade deadline, the Dolphins might not be done. 

According to Armando Salguero of the Associated Press, Landry was available on the trade market for "the right compensation."

The news found its way to injured New York Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr., who couldn't help but let his feelings be known:

Beckham and Landry were teammates in college at LSU from 2012-2013 where they created one of the most fearsome pass-catching duos in the nation. Both were drafted in 2014 with Beckham going 12th overall and Landry going 63rd overall. 

The Giants could use help at wide receiver at the moment considering Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris all suffered season-ending injuries during Week 5. Sterling Shepard is also working his way back from injury as well.

It's left Eli Manning with a rag-tag group of receivers that have been unable to generate anything over the past few weeks. 

While bringing in Landry would propose the chance of a reunion between he and Beckham, the Miami receiver is an unrestricted free agent after this season, which would mean he would have to be re-signed. 

That expiring contract could have been the reason why the Dolphins dangled Landry's name out on the trade market in the first place. But it looks as though they wised up a little after two hours after Salguero's report.

The AP writer, per sources, said that Landry will not be dealt before the deadline, but the situation is "still fluid."
