So is Landry at the facility yet? Haven't heard anything.
I think Nelson should be a bigger priority than Landry. A coverage safety is more important to this team than a Landry type player. I would love to have both, but I would definitely put Nelson first on my list.

Jets make an offer to free agent safety Reggie Nelson, await his answer
BY Manish Mehta
The Jets took a step closer on Saturday to filling their biggest area of need in free agency.
Bengals safety Reggie Nelson finished his visit with the Jets after a “productive” visit with Jets’ officials, his agent Hadley Engelhard told the Daily News on Saturday. Nelson will now weight the Jets’ offer and make up his mind within 24 hours, Engelhard said. In addition to the Bengals and Jets, Nelson has received interest from a third team.
Nelson, 28, revived his career with the Bengals after three seasons in Jacksonsville. Quarterbacks had a 73.9 passer rating throwing at Nelson last season, according to Pro Football Focus. He allowed only two touchdown passes against him in 2011.
Nelson fits the profile of an athletic safety that the Jets were desperately lacking in 2011. Eric Smith was the only safety under contract with significant playing time in the Jets’ defensive system.
Free agent safety LaRon Landry was scheduled to visit the Jets on Sunday. The Jets were interested in Brandon Meriweather before he signed with the Redskins on Thursday.
The Jets will likely target another safety in the draft next month.
After not signing today, I doubt he'll be a Jet.
The Bengals are also notoriously cheap and are not a better team then we are. If Nelson wants a legitimate/better shop at winning a championship he will choose us.
It's always the Mystery Team™.
Reggie Nelson's two-day visit with the Jets went very well. He just would like to think over their offer and make an informed decision #nfl
