Landry's nothing special. Makes some big plays and big hits, but misses a lot of tackles too, and is no better than average in coverage.
If the market recognizes this, bring him back for cheap. There are a number of better safeties in FA, so he may not get such big offers. But if he does, Jets shouldn't try to match.
Could say the same for most of the other FAs on the list. They all do some things well, and are only "buyer beware" if you pay a lot.
I can agree with this. I actually have no idea how Landry made the pro bowl this year. He is the best S we have had in year but still average IMO. Makes some great high light plays and was a good JET. If he is asking for more then 4mil a year yeah I wish him and the sap that signs that deal luck. He is very replicable. Heck I'll still take Rhodes over him and he is like 31.
I didn't watch all the games but a lot of what I saw of the Jets it looked like while Landry's on the field contribution wasn't quite pro-bowl caliber, he seemed to bring a lot of fire and leadership to the defensive backfield.
I dunno, I thought he had a solid year. He's not a super star but I don't think stats capture all he did for your team.
So the only reason Keller had a lot of receptions is because he's pretty good, but otherwise, he sucks...
He had his best year in 2011, not 2009
Love the fans that like to be negative about everything with the jets....even better the ones that think they are talent evaluators. Dude is negative about everything hoping he is accepted by the trolls and that schmuck sar.

Jake Long is an interesting name. Didn't know he was a free agent. He will probably be looking for big money, but there is no better way to shore up the line than to have Long and Brick as the bookends and draft a guard or two
I'm not a huge fan of Keller, but not recognizing that Mark Sanchez as a QB is part of the problem is a little bit misleading. That's like looking at Larry Fitzgerald's season and not mentioning the Arizona QBs.
Oh, I agree, Sanchez plays a role, but as much as I dislike Sanchez when it comes to Keller's inconsistent hands or lack thereof blocking ability, you can't blame anyone but Dustin for that.
