The notion of playing under the franchise tag isn't sitting well with Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who plans to hold out as he bids for a long-term contract.

"The team decides to exercise the franchise tag. I'm considering not playing on it," Landry said in a 10-minute teaser of a documentary called Juice, via the Sun-Sentinel. "The franchise tag is not a good deal for me."

The Dolphins placed the franchise tag on Landry last week, with the receiver tag expected to cost $16.2 million on a one-year deal. They have offered the three-time Pro Bowl selection a long-term deal with an average of $13 million per season, according to the newspaper.
