Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

LaRon Landry without a doubt is only going to run slower. While he can still line up in the box like an extra linebacker, I'm not sure that this Dorian Yates muscularity of his will do him any good on the football field. His injury will not heal. Maybe it will, but sometimes surgery is the best option and he decided to go with what he went through with last off season and it did him or the injury no good.

If he doesn't come back to Washington, I wouldn't be surprised. From 2007 until now, I really wasn't impressed with him at all. If Vinny Cerratto was smart, he would have traded Landry for Ryan Clark. That way, we would have had a real strong safety in the defensive backfield like we did when Clark and Sean Taylor were the sheriff and the deputy.

The blame should be on Gregg Williams, he was the one who believed that he could find someone better than Clark, which was when he signed Archuleta (sp?). Although I think it is worth noting the fact that Landry seemed to play well with Taylor on his side, until Taylor passed away and then Landry obviously felt the pressure to play as well as Taylor did.

Apparently I missed this earlier. Welcome to the boards!

If Vinny Cerrato was smart, he'd have never let Ryan Clark leave in the first place. I also tend to agree with others that ST's death put more pressure on Landry to be who he never was.

By the way I still remember how high Peter King was on Laron coming out and remember this article. Look at this. He missed on a LOT of guys.
Given how difficult it is to predict things in the NFL, I say he did a pretty good job.

With F.D. getting the franchise tag, Landry can leave. So long after five seasons of nothing.

Sounds like he's on his way to Jacksonville (brother is there) unless the Redskins offer more, which doesn't seem likely.

There's no way Laron could beat his bro out anyway. The thing is he won't land anywhere in "strategic" fashion, it'll simply be whoever takes a chance on him. I suggested weeks ago Landry shouldn't be re-signed for more than vet min.

...if I'm wrong it won't be by much.

I think the chances of him coming back are quite small. I mean he's not a priority at all. He'll likely get some lowball offer from us

Ughh not what i wanted to hear. The things we asked him to do in the box require a special talent, and i dont see that at SS on our roster right now, i do not trust Gomes to start with OJ. Do you see us trying to upgrade at safety if/when LaRon leaves.

Don't know, quite honestly

It's probably best for both sides to just move on at this point. I don't have a big problem with it.
