Landry Disciplined for Being Late to Flight for Buffalo Game

While 2012 was a tough season for many Jets players, LaRon Landry had a great year, gaining a Pro Bowl nomination.  But on just a one-year deal and with the Jets now going to have to made some hard choices about the salary cap, his future with the team seems uncertain as a unrestricted free agent.

While it might not mean much, Rich Cimini noted on ESPN that Landry was disciplined for being late to the flight to Buffalo the day before the Jets Week 17 game.

Landry didn’t start the season finale in Buffalo because of disciplinary reasons, according to a source. He missed the team bus to the airport the day before the game and was docked playing time. Somehow, he made the flight.

Eric Smith started at safety, as Landry ended up playing only 35 of 58 defensive snaps, easily his lowest playing-time percentage of the season. He sat out for only 25 snaps in the first 15 games combined.

It’s an interesting footnote and I appreciate it being reported, but I’m not really all that worried about the matter.  It sounds as if even though this happened Landry would like to return to New York.  More than anything I’d like to know if this was just an isolated incident among all players on the team across 16 games or was it that it just so happened to be on the last week of the season and the coach was trying to make a point?

It's a long way till the draft and I will say it won't be an OL in the first round. First two rounds will be defense.

Thinkn u may be reading too much into this move... The GMEN are simply trying to catch lightning in a bottle so to speak. You really never know what this kid could turn out to become if he was the top lineman in the CFL the past 2 seasons it's very possible NFL scouts and the like just simply missed on this kid... Happens all yhe time in all sports esp. NFL/MLB the experts make mistakes too and there have been a handful of players that have cone over from CFL and had decent careers most notably/recently believe Cameron Wake was an ex-CFL'er before he was brought on by the Fins and became one of the premier pass rushers in the NFL...I could be off bout this but pretty sure he was one of the more recent players to make the switch successfully... But still don't see how this has anything to do w Richburg ?! Weston has progressed just fine and way I see it is GMEN are weak up front on their OL and are just attempting to add to their depth nd like I said you never know myb they get lucky and find a pro bowl C or G would be a good Prob to have

@Jaymes Provine

the CFL only has 10 Teams,

JD Walton was on the Books for $3,625,000 for 2015.

with $625,000 DeadMoney if cut.... save $3,000,000.

IMO. REESE was trying to fix that Mistake....

but why a guy who ONLY play's OC,

Back-Up interior O-Linemen should play more than 1 position.....

NFL OG is VERY different then CFL OG....

i see a LONG Learning Curve for him.

this will Effect the 53, between carrying 10, O-Linemen or 9, O-Linemen.

Yea myb and I get where your coming from but I still think he could just be casting his line and hoping to get lucky... Kids young we don't know what he can do yet. Don't get me wrong I think this is much to do bout nothing and doubt he'll have any serious impact but like I said U never know my friend

I don't think Richburg Failed to win the Starting Center Job,

it could be that JD Walton could ONLY play Center, NOT OG.....

and Judging from the Center Class of 2014,

4th Rounder, OC-B. Stork help the Pat's win the SuperBowl as their Starting Center, and

5th Round, OC-C. Linsey helped GreenBay to the NFC Crown game, as their starting center, which they should have won,

OC- Richburg was Better than them BOTH.....

JD walton when cut, has $635,000 of Dead Money... POOR GMing.....

@Skookaloop  Yeah well he was drafted well ahead of them both in the 2nd Rd so he should be better than both. However he wasn't considerably better so the value of whether Richburg was a good choice at that point is in question

@Brian Webster @Skookaloop

this is why REESE is an Average GM,

OC- Richburg should have played Center.

Now he's a year behind in development

It's Roster choices like this that waste TIME & Sal-Cap space.

@Skookaloop Well I think that would be a Coughlin decision not a Reese decision. JR acquires the players but TC decides who plays, how much & where.

@Brian Webster @Skookaloop Reese didn't get enough talent at guard. He was counting on Chris Snee to start. You could fault TC for starting the preseason with Richburg and Schwartz at G and Walton at C. Maybe it should have been Richburg at C and Schwartz and Jerry at G (although is that really any better?). 

But once Schwartz went down, it was a moot point. At that point, the only viable alignment was the one TC went with. Reese never gave him an option. We had one legitimate NFL guard and he was hurt.

"I think [Richburg] looked like a rookie out there part of the time, but he represented himself really well for the most part," Reese said. "We think he's going to be a terrific player for us, a long time kind of player. He's actually a center, he played center at Colorado State and that's his natural position, he didn't really get to battle at the center spot because we had to use him at guard. I do think his future is at center."

If nothing else, last season proved you can not have enough talent on the offensive line.  I doubt this contract is going to be a cap strainer - so if it makes us better (either as a starter or key depth) - it's a win win.

Anytime you can upgrade at a position by signing a young player for cheap, do it. This isn't like signing an expensive free agent where cap becomes a consideration. Giants shouldn't even think about who he might replace and what it means for Richburg. Just sign as many young players as they can and let the staff sort it out at camp.
