ESPN: LaRon Landry signs!!!!

ESPN - Redskins sign safety Landry of LSU, No. 6 in draft - NFL

Working all through the day Sunday, the Washington Redskins were finally able to strike an agreement early Monday morning with first-round choice LaRon Landry of LSU, the sixth player selected overall in this year's draft.

The deal, negotiated by agent Joel Segal, came just shy of 1 a.m. Monday, and will be signed later in the day after both sides review the final document.

The five-year contract has a maximum value of $41.5 million and it includes $17.5 million in guarantees.

A four-time all-SEC defender, Landry was universally regarded as the top safety in the 2007 draft and among the best prospects at the position in the last several years. He is one of only a handful of safeties ever chosen among the top 10 players in the modern-era draft, and joins teammate Sean Taylor, the Redskins' top pick in 2004, in that distinction

It's about friggin time.

No LL stop massaging your nuts. Paintball doesn't hurt that much. Rub some dirt on it, and get your 17.5 mil in guaranteed money out on the practice field.

IT IS ON! Let's get it on!

Officially season has started.

Who's ready to scream their face off at every game (on defense) for the veteran minimum again this year?

Very nice...and we didn't break the piggy bank either.
It's time for the Skins to actually have a great safety tandem on the field, not just on paper (which we seem to have a lot)

I love Landry, just scary with rookies because you never quite know.

Well, at the moment it's just on paper...we all thought this time last year that we had the best safety tandem ever, we all see how that turned out.
So I'm not buying the hype until they produce.

AW come on. You mean to tell me that you are not going to buy into the whole Area 51 thing? It's cute just like the Steelers rediculous "Terrible Towell". It's magically horendous.

NOPE...not yet anyway.
Maybe they will develope into it, but as of now, they are nothing.
With all the question marks this team has this year, this question mark should be the easiest to answer. I really think they will do well, but you never know. Taylor needs to do a better job of being a team player.
