    theres a reason why the skins got rid of him and the best thing he was offered was a 1yr deal by us. i said all along this guy is a walking injury. if he does play this season it'll be 1 or 2 games before he gets hurt again.

    his name should be laron softy. reminds me of gholston

    I think the Skins not only grew tired of his injury-prone body, but because he did things (rehab, training, etc.) his own way and didn't take the team's recommendations when it came to those injuries. He really should be with the Jets for OTAs, at least in the classroom. like everyone was saying earlier in this thread, there's a reason we signed Bell -- and guaranteed him way more money

    [QUOTE=Ray Ray19;4474151]:confused:

    The Jets have signed Landry and Bell, and have drafted Bush and Allen??

    What more do you want?[/QUOTE]

    agreed...the jets did everything they could to address the safety position this offseason...

    let's assume Landry doesn't play a single down...we still have a vet and 2 rookies plus last years fodder...

    jets will be OK at the safety position...

    it's the RT position that I'm concerned about.

    [QUOTE=Buzzsaw;4474335]We don't know the details dude, for all we know he spoke to Rex and wanted to continue to rehab at his home and he got the team's blessing. If that's not what happened, you're still overreacting. These are voluntary.

    And if you have evidence that Landry's been a problem in the lockerroom, please post the articles, because I have not heard that.[/QUOTE]

    It was primarily comments by Mike Shanahan during an ESPN interview about his attitude that got me going on this guy but here's some examples of what we are in for with another "me first" player:

I say good riddance! Landry was/is uber talented, butthe man just can't stay healthy. Furthermore I can't deal with the celebrationsand on-field antic of "Not-so Dirty 30" after giving up big plays.I'm not sure if the "30" stands for his roster number or the numberof yards he surrenders per play.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman]You're going tohear a lot of Skins fan say something to the tune of, "we have to keep ourhigh picks" or "but he's going to be really good elsewhere". Whocares! If the guy doesn't want to be here then... PEACE OUT![/FONT]

    And, true to form, he hasn't showed up to the classroom where he could have started building some chemistry with his new team mates. Maybe my comments were a little harsh but in addition to the leadership we are losing with Leonard it's a double hit.

    Brilliant signing.

    $1.75M down the tubes.

    If they were willing to ultimately give this guy $3.5M, I think the Jets should have been more aggressive in pursuing Reggie Nelson. I'd be pretty satisfied with Nelson and Bell with the two kids backing up.

    Ive hated the landry signing from the beginning....big injury risk but more then that he is not very good in coverage which is what we need.

    I understand that we addressed the position with his signing, but I don't see how he fits in, especially given the complicated nature of our coverages. It took pool half the season to get comfortable back there and I don't believe he had the "classroom attitude" that landry has.

    I hope he is a situational blitzedr or not on the 53 at all....we need speed and character here..

    Not impressed with Landry at this point. You've never played with a team
    or coaching staff and you're coming to a totally new defensive scheme. And
    you don't show up??? Even if you are still rehabbing your injury you should
    be around the facility and "the boys". Good thing Tanny constructed his
    contract based on games played. To tell you the truth with Bell being signed
    and the kids we brought in I wouldn't be shocked if he's let go.

    Challenge to get him ready to play or to show up at team headquarters?

    Looking back at when we signed Landry and Bell was released both
    occurred on March 19th. I wonder if Bell was on the market before then
    would we have ever sniffed around Landry? Remember the free agent
    safety market was pathetic

    You're clueless and desperate.

    He hasn't gone to OTA's to rehab. We got it, knew it and said it.

    You're called him a locker room cancer.

    Havent seen it. You haven't cited it. You posted that he missed OTA's and had issues with the Skins med staff.

    Desperate and clueless, making something out of nothing to fit your dumb argument. Why do people that dont have a single clue as to what happens in a locker shoot their mouths off as if they spent significant time in that locker room?

    And BTW, Shanny has been a complete doosh who has handled his roster like a clown

    That's twice you've resorted to insults, because you can't back up your position. Why all the vitriol dude, you sound like I insulted your b!tch, or more likely the other way around. :bunny:

    Show me why he can't rehab and do classroom at the same time? Or why his disappearing act in Washington, despite his promises to the contrary, are being repeated here?
