While all of Jets nations waits on baited breath for new and relevant Darrelle Revis news to analyze, another major off-season task is being handled by the Jets front office: Trying to re-sign Pro Bowl safety LaRon Landry.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets have had preliminary discussions with Landry’s agents and would like to re-sign the safety.
Landry’s asking price is expected to be around $6 million a year, which could really be a stretch for the cap-strapped Jets.
Though the Jets may be planning to re-sign Landry, he is expected to test the free agent market which begins March 12th, per Rich Cimini.
In other news, the Jets’ plans to have competition at the quarterback position may mean having as many as FIVE quarterbacks on the roster, including free agent QB Brady Quinn. According a report from Chris Mortensen, the Jets plan to sign Quinn to compete with Sanchez, third-year back-up Greg McElroy, Matt Simms and a TBD free agent in camp.
Mortensen also noted that Tebow is not expected to be part of their plans at the quarterback position (duh).
Update: Mort has since clarified that was originally called a “report” is actually closer to speculation, though it’s worth mentioning that Quinn and new quarterback’s coach David Lee have a close relationship.
