LOL@ this "NFL vet min wage" and the "Doughty is better than LL" talk.

I'm no doctor, but unfortunately it seems that the Redskins (or whoever) have to make a guess on Landry next spring
It's really hard to imagine our FO re-signing him to a multi-year deal given the situation as you put it...let alone an outside franchise LMAO!

How's that dialogue w/ the agent go?

Agent: "So my client is looking for a solid multi-year deal but he's just not sure when he'll ever be physically able to play again...did I mention he was a 6th overall pick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Anyone listening: ".......click"

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I would franchise him and get that achilis operated on. The franchise tag is not that expensive for a safety. Make him play the one year on the tender and see if he stays healthy and regains his form. If not then move on next year.

Perhaps you can explain just how you are going to "get that achillies operated on" as part of your franchise deal? When you name the guy your franchise player, he gets a standardized contract offer with a salary attached to it. There is no clause in it that says he must have a surgery in order for the contract to be valid.

Last year, Landry refused surgery in lieu of "alternative treatments". Suppose he opts for another set of "alternative treatments" again this year. How do you propose that the Redskins "make him have surgery?"

There is a deadline by which the Skins have to use their franchise tag. Suppose it is 24 hours prior to that deadline and Landry has still not "gone under the knife". What do you do?

If we assume that the Fred Davis deal is already done, then I franchise him and trade him for best offer.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

If Cerrato was here.. We would of re-signed him already to a multi deal. Although, I think the new regime is smarter then that

I'm not even sure if he is a medium caliber safety.

He's an athlete but hes not a smart one.

He's not a game changer.

He doesn't make big plays.

He's injury prone.

If his contract is up let him go we can do better.
Right on. Some folk can't get over that physique though and it blinds their evaluation.

So despite his physical ability Landry is often a step or two late on the play. He's also dumb in his behavior, antics etc, which is just absurd for such an underwhelming player.

Edit: I think Landry is actually one of the dumbest players I've seen in a long time. Keep in mind when his physical ability deteriorates he's worthless.
He is good for a blitz but that is about it. I thought he was good too though at the time. I see why they drafted him but what a let down. For that matter most the highlight film on him was when he was blitzing. Maybe he should do that because he can't do much else but occasionally fly thru the air and lay a good hit on someone. Then when people see that they think he is awesome.

For every flight he takes he misses more than he hits. Now London Fletcher is an example of a great player although he is a LB. Landry isn't even close to his playmaking and tackling skills. But some people love the way he imitates an airplane and defend him no matter what. Emotional analysis instead of honest critique

Good to see him doing charity work. He deserves some credit for that. Good job Laron.

Sounds kinda weird but I think you're exactly right on this. Sort of a head-scratcher to me in the context of football but people really do get fixated on looks lol

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

Actually, this year I think Doughty has played just as well or better than LL. That's of course noting, as others have, that LL hasn't been the same since his achilles injury.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

If I am involved with player personnel for this team and had to make a snap, quick judgement on Landry now, I say let him walk.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I said let him walk. He has had time to show progress and hasn't, at least to my expectations. I'm not worried, as others are, to having to fill another hole in our line up. I was already under the expectations that we would have another sub .500 season next year while we continue to rebuild properly. If it means getting a quality safety play maker here so be it!

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I'll be interested to see, if we let him go, who we'll get to replace him...

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

Isn't it weird that to this point Adrian Peterson has been healthier then Laron?

I thought of this more than once during yesterday's game, most notably when Doughty stopped Jacobs by taking out his legs. Doughty took a knee to the helmet but it was an impressive tackle. Landry would have gotten run over or (more likely) simply dove to the turf to avoid contact as he has so many times before.

...it's sad he never learned to tackle through all his years of high school and college ball.
