Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets will host free agent safety LaRon Landry for a visit to club headquarters this weekend.

Florio reported earlier in the week that the Jets were, indeed, one of four teams showing immediate interest in Landry once the free agency period commenced. The other clubs were New England, Detroit, and Philadelphia.

The Jets will be Landry’s second visit of the free agency period.

His first meeting is with the Patriots on Friday night.

    Actually, he’s supposed to visit Foxboro today. If he checks out physically, hopefully they sign him before he even visits NY. If his priorities are straight, he will. I mean, the perennial contending Patriots or the dysfunctional train wreck Jets.

    Is that even a choice? I guess NY could throw desperate money at him…

    I think Reggie Nelson would be a better fit

    Or he could go with the team that sanctions every form of cheating known to man…which would allow him to continue roiding it up with no consequences from the organization.

    Reggie Smith, a free agent 9er, should be getting much more love. He would have been starting if he didn’t hurt his knee. Of course, Golden would have overtaken him but I’m surprised that he isn’t getting more love. He will be a starter in this league, but for now hopefully the 9ers get him back.

    What about a New England visit that was reported
    and how does NE signing Gregory affect that?

    If healthy AND in a system that lets him play close to the l.o.s, Landry is an animal; however, hes not healthy and may never be reliable for 16 games again. In addition, good coaches always find a way to take advantage of him in the passing game. I cant see anyone giving him more than a 1 yr deal at this point.

    Fun to watch but more of a highlight reel player than a pro bowler unfortunately. We’ll miss you LaRon!

    HTTR!

    He’s overrated, horrible in coverage, injury prone, always goes for the big hit (usually misses), and celebrates after he tackles the opponenet after a 20 yard gain and being down by 30. As a Skins fan I’ve been waiting for him to leave.

  9. cowboyhater says: Mar 16, 2012 11:42 AM

    Buyer beware. Unless you only use him close to the line of scrimmage, he is worthless in coverage. Oh, I also forgot, he doesn’t wrap up when tackling, which means RB’s run right through him. Don’t let his physique fool you. Damaged goods people.

  10. tybrew says: Mar 16, 2012 11:43 AM

    Didn’t the pats just signed a safety named Gregory…no news on that???

  11. skinsdan says: Mar 16, 2012 11:45 AM

    He’ll fit in well with that group of individuals. Syonara, dirty #30.

    I’ve seen these posts from you before when reading the comments and realize that you probably just do this just to get a rise out of people (I hope–if not, you’re beyond stupid) but I’ll bite…

    The Patriots got fined and docked the 1st round pick because they ignored the league memo on WHERE filming was legal, not IF it was. Basically, Belichick gave Goodell the finger and he got punished for it. Since then, the Patriots are 68-21, which is better than their record BEFORE “Spygate”. And for those of you who say “no Superbowls without filming,” give me a break. They were 8 points and some fluke plays away from having 2 more. With a little luck, they’d have 5 Lombardi’s instead of 3.

    To look at all that and not come to the conclusion that this was the most overblown sports controversy of all-time is just ignoring reality.

    Good day.

    Hail what? No seriously hail what? Hail the fans who’ve dumped their hard working money into Danny boys pocket every year just to be pooped on? Hail the great signings like Adam Archiletta, Haynesworth, Deion, ect? You guys are on the come up with RG3 & Co but please for ya own good stop telling people to “HAIL” to a team that has been the laughing stock of the NFL the last 10+ years. If you only realized how stupid you look screamin “HTTR…HTTR!”

  14. ceschatz says: Mar 16, 2012 12:24 PM

    They need all the help they can get on Defense to make up for the mistake of resigning Sancheese.

    @humbleminded85: For Redskins fans, it’s always HTTR. I think you are the one looking foolish expecting anything but affection from a team’s fans. HTTR! Just because we say HTTR doesn’t mean we agree with every acquisition made by the owner. You love America, don’t you? Do you agree with every single thing the country has done? Going by your logic you had better not demonstrate your love for the country otherwise you’ll be endorsing slavery, racism, war.

    You just described dedicated and loyal fans. For you to say that Redskins fans should stop saying Hail is the dumbest thing ever. Saying Hail shows that no matter how bad the Redskins may be, they still have a large number of loyal fans.

    Your post is the reason why people nowadays become bandwagoners. If you can’t show your pride when your team is 5-11, then you can’t show it when your team posts a 11-5 record the next year. To top it off, it sounds like your jealous that Redskin fans have enough pride to shout HTTR..

    HTTR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, I have to say, reading the comments from ‘Skins fans on previous articles about Landry are not encouraging. Seems they like him, but he’s too often injured.

    Sounds like trouble… but then again, so did Rodney Harrison. Tread carefully, Jets.

  18. redrobots44 says: Mar 16, 2012 12:47 PM

    Cheat or not Patriots still OWN THE NFL…. pathetic for big market teams who can’t make one Super Bowl or even the playoffs and we’re out there with the ugliest uniforms, obscure location, and terrible history just sticking it to all you other joke franchises. Have fun spending ur hard earned money on a fresh new jersey while i can keep repping the brady one i bought a decade ago.

    p.s. i hope the pats cheat their way to another ‘chip just to piss you bandwagon ‘skins, jets, cowboys etc. fans off even more…

  19. xsorethumbx says: Mar 16, 2012 12:49 PM

    remember all those articles after Hard Knocks saying how everyone would love to play for Rex and last years big FA prize for the Jets was Plax?

    that was awesome

    1) You have a great owner. Robert Kraft is what owners are supposed to be like.

    2) You have a phenomenal head coach who will be a first ballot hall of famer.

    3) Your franchise stumbled upon one of the greatest quarterbacks to play in the NFL.

    Yes the Patriots are a great organization, however, it won’t last for more than five more years so enjoy it. Another side note, the Patriots don’t own the NFL. Sure they may have owned the NFL in the early 2000s, but as of recently, not so much. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how many playoff games or superbowls you’ve appeared in. All that matters is the Lombardi trophy. Based on your logic, the Bills of the early 90s “owned” the NFL.

    Oh yeah, thanks for showing everyone on PFT your elementary writing and grammar skills.. And the fact that you are a douche.

  24. kingbuccaneer says: Mar 16, 2012 1:36 PM

    If the Jets plan on using him in coverage, they will get burned repeatedly. That’s counting on the guy is actually healthy. He’s a body builder not an athlete.

  25. kingjoe1 says: Mar 16, 2012 1:40 PM

    Tomorrow he will be in Philly to stay.

  26. redrobots44 says: Mar 16, 2012 1:50 PM

    Deangelo1776;

    I agree with every point you made. Definitely got a bit of new york jets-itis for a moment there, must be contagious these days.

  27. deangelo1776 says: Mar 16, 2012 3:33 PM

    It is indeed very contagious! I respect the Patriots as an organization. Well run from top to bottom.

    Phenomenal Coach? Are you talking about the supposed “Defensive Guru” Bill Belichick? For someone to consider him a Phenomenal Coach and to forget that his Defenses have progressively gotten worse and the past 3 years hasnt ranked higher than 20th def in the league. His success is dependent on Tom Brady’s Play, oh yeah how good were the Pats when Brady was lost for the year?
