LaRon Landry wants to prove he is healthy before he gets a lengthy contract. So the versatile safety signed a one-year contract with the New York Jets with the idea that a longer deal and bigger bucks could come down the road.
To the fan that doesn’t bother to pay attention to salary cap ramifications it appears as if Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum has been asleep at the switch. But, really, it only appears that way.
The Jets have signed former Redskin LaRon Landry to help improve their pass defense, the team confirmed on Monday. Landry will slide in as a starter in a secondary that was in serious need of help at the safety position.
Running back LaDainian Tomlinson and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley missed New York’s previous two games with left knee injuries but are back in time for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
