    Cimini: Landry was late for flight to finale

    January, 9, 2013
    By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com

    Safety LaRon Landry has spoken glowingly of his time with the Jets, but his first and perhaps last season with them ended on a bitter note.

    Landry didn't start the season finale in Buffalo because of disciplinary reasons, according to a source. He missed the team bus to the airport the day before the game and was docked playing time. Somehow, he made the flight.

    Eric Smith started at safety, as Landry ended up playing only 35 of 58 defensive snaps, easily his lowest playing-time percentage of the season. He sat out for only 25 snaps in the first 15 games combined.

    Landry, who signed only a one-year contract with the Jets, will be an unrestricted free agent. He has said he'd like to re-sign with them, but that appears unlikely. The Jets can't use the franchise tag, per a clause in his contract, and they probably wouldn't be able to afford him under tight salary-cap situation.

    LOL. Since when is Rex a disciplinarian?

    Can't make this stuff up.

    Discipline Landry and let the rest of the inmates run the asylum.

    Either way I don't think he was coming back. I don't see how we can afford him.

    He was probably late because he was working out.

    Can't win for losing, Rex does nothing and it becomes" thats why this team is the way it is". Rex does what a HC is suppose to do and it Becomes " who does he think he is " Sad.

    Your point would be fair if it wasn't Week 17 of Year 4.

    Week 17 of Year 4 is a little too late.
