The NY Jets were desparate for help at safety and have decided to take a chance on the injury-prone Landy by agreeing to a one-year contract worth $4 million, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Landry spent the first five years of his career playing for the Redskins, who drafted him sixth overall out of LSU in the 2007 NFL Draft. Landry missed 15 games over the past two seasons after missing only one game the first three years are his career.
In 64 career games, Landry has compiled 383 tackles, 5.5 sacks and 4 interceptions and forced 6 fumbles. He is better playing closer to the line of scrimmage than in coverage and has a reputation for delivering big hits (like this one on Laurent Robinson, for example). Landry should fit well in the Jets scheme, granted that he stays healthy.
