Jets making “aggressive push” to sign LaRon Landry

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets are making an “aggressive push” to sign free agent safety LaRon Landry.

Likewise, Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports the Jets are “trying to sign” Landry after his Sunday visit to the club’s Florham Park facility.

While the Jets have also shown recent interest in free agent safety O.J. Atogwe, the Landry and Atogwe pursuits appear to be independent of each other. Atogwe is almost strictly a free safety. Landry is an in-the-box strong safety. They play different positions.

Landry is the highest rated unsigned safety left on the PFT Hot 100.

  1. ‘Roid rage and Jets team-wide ego?

    This guy should have his own Sunday Comics strip if this happens.

  2. I guess the jets need a weight room manager because Landry is damaged goods never stays healthy.

  3. Can he pass a drug test tho!? Dude is on some performance enhancing stuff fo sho.

  4. I don’t know about this guy, from what I’ve read he’s quick to bite on the pump fake, decent at best in coverage and a little on the slow side…not what the Jets need, we already have 3 of those.

  5. Boston Globe reporter Greg Bedard said Landry’s physical with the Patriots on Friday was “iffy.”
    Go get him, Rex.

  6. Chronically injured, achilles is on fire, missed 16 of last 32 games.

    I hope the Jets make it happen.

  7. Dear New York Jets Management,

    Good luck. You’ll know why we let him walk after the first time he flexes his muscles and taunts after a 25-yard completion.

    Signed,

    District of Columbia

  8. If the Jet’s get Landry they will regret it. As a Skins fan, I was so excited when we got this kid, but once Sean Taylor died, his limitations were exposed. He has extremely limited range that has only gotten worse as he decided it was more important to have a big upper body than to be able to run well or have range of motion. Landry is also on par with some of the worst in the NFL at reading coverage. The Jets will certainly get an athletic “specimen” that will under perform and not be worth close to his very lofty price.

  9. Perfect fit for a Rex Ryan mentality led football team. I’m sure Rex will know how to use him. He wore out his stay in DC from his twitter comments, and just lack of interest in getting rehabilitated with the skins training staff. As for OJ, good luck with that. If you ever hear him talk, you can tell he has lost interest in playing football in my opinion.

  10. they should sign him if they’re looking for a new sideline mascot since he spends more time hurt on the sideline…as a patriots fan i was really hoping we would stay as far away from this guy as possible

  11. If Sean Taylor didn’t pass away, Landry and Taylor were destined for greatness in the secondary. Landry needs a true free safety in order to reach his potential as the strong safety. Being healthy is the other key.

    He wore out his welcome in D.C., but I want to see him do well and recover from his injury.

  12. Boy oh boy the jets are in worse shape than I thought, signing the skins secondary. Good luck with that. Landry has played 6-8 games the past 2 years and has ended the last 2 seasons on IR. OJ missed a whole mess of games last year also. Yes LL is a freaking beast but I believe that is most of the problem. He has no fat on him which hurts in the game of football. Way to much into body building not football. The guy should have had surgery 2 years ago and DIDNT…

    SEE YA Laron. Beat your chest after a 20 yard gain somewhere else.

  13. Bloomingdales is quite excited as men’s dress shirts will be ripping at an unseen rates in manhattan.
    You won’t like him when he’s angry…which is pretty common as he is beat deep early and often.

  14. If Sean Taylor didn’t pass away, Landry and Taylor were destined for greatness in the secondary. Landry needs a true free safety in order to reach his potential as the strong safety. Being healthy is the other key.

    He wore out his welcome in D.C., but I want to see him do well and recover from his injury.

    Did his feet smell?

  16. We need safeties badly, but how about getting Leonhard or someone else first? We need a free safety more and this guy is just a stronger and more athletic Eric Smith… No wait… no1 is as bad as Eric Smith.
    Anyway, we already went with the physical specimen in Vernon Gholston and we all saw how that turned out…

  17. LaRon Landry = BEASTMODE he buys his supplements at the same store I do in Slidell, LA…Trainer’s Choice check em out they kick @ss! plenty of local athletes shop there…
