    Report: Jets trying to re-sign safety LaRon Landry

    Take it with a grain of salt considering who is reporting it.....
    ----------------------------------------------
    Jets safety LaRon Landry will become an unrestricted free agent in March. the hard hitting safety had a good year and played all 16 games in 2012 for the first time in four years.

    The capped strapped Jets have had discussions and had made it known they are trying to sign Landry, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Landry has been said to be seeking at least $6 million per year.

    Key word "trying".

    Jets: OK, LaRon, here is 3 years 12.5 million. What do you say?

    LaRon: No

    Jets: We tried.

    Given Laron's injury history, I'm guessing the stumbling block might be guarantees/injury clause rather that the total contract amount.

    I don't know if its that much of a token effort. I guess it all depends on what the Market is for him and while he's looking for $6m/yr, it doesn't mean he'll get it.

    He looked good to the naked eye but a lot of the statistical analyses don't hold him in as high an esteem. Personally, I don't put too much stock in those analyses for a safety, but while we remember the big hits (and they certainly have real value), its more important that he is in proper position to make the ordinary play - something that he may not have been as competent at.

    That is the only smart way to make the deal if I was the Jets. If I had a crystal ball and knew he would stay on the field. Then I would want to resign him as much as many posters here do. I just think the odds of him playing back to back 16 game seasons are very slim.

    Hopefully they can come to a reasonable agreement but we obviously can't hamstring ourselves over one player. If another team is willing to pay significantly more let him go there.

    This. He is a not a cover safety. Is he light years ahead of Eric Smith? You bet, he has way more athletic ability. But he should be limited to being an SS, mainly in the box. I wouldn't go higher than 4 million a year for 3 years. Possibly 5 mill with injury clauses.

    If the market dictates $5m a year then I would definitely look at a contract that has injury clauses for him. But if he does go somewhere else, then there will be players that will love to make $5m at the safety spot. Byrd for Buffalo is a solid safety with cover skills and so to is Moore out of the ATL.

    Teams that were in the playoffs last year don't "need" him.
    Teams that were not in the playoffs will be leary of his injurys.
    I would sign this guy with too much guaranteed money either.
    Lets see what happens.

    LaRon was a good investment last season. But he's as good as gone.

    Only if he was moving into Bell's place at SS where he succeeded at in Washington. He's not a FS. He was a major liability in pass coverage as our previous FS. He's a very good SS, and if they can get him for the right price it would be a nice thing to keep him, but FS must be manned by a draft pick or Antonio Allen or Josh Bush.

    Good point. Bush yes, but Allen isn't a FS either.

    key word is injury. landry has been injury prone and the way he plays it's surprising he's still so good. now if the jets can get some incentives in there for games played it might be worthwhile at big money.

    in idzik we trust. landry for the right price is a no brainer.

    Don't think he's worth more than $4 million next year +cuttable out-years. I liked the reports that the Jets want Quin out of Houston.

    Agree that Landry could be a force at Yeremiah Bell's spot with a rangy, cover-safety type on the other side of the field. But not at the price he'll command.

    Starting to think the safeties on the roster next year will be: Bell, Allen, Bush, and someone like Duke Williams, T.J. McDonald, Cyprien, or Earl Wolff in the middle rounds. Which I'd be okay, but not thrilled with.

    Since I am down here in Fla, can one of you guys do me a solid and next time you run into Manish*thead punch him in the crotchal region?

    This dude is a heaping pile and needs to be knocked the f*ck out!

    Jets absolutely have to resign Landry if they trade Revis. Otherwise our secondary will be the worst in the NFL next yr.

    If he was good as gone, we wouldn't be reading about news that the Jets are trying to resign him.
