Landry, coming over from the Washington Redskins after playing his first five seasons, had his best campaign yet. In 2012, Landry made the Pro Bowl after totaling 99 tackles, two interceptions and four forced fumbles.
After struggling through his last two seasons in the nation's capital injured, playing just 15 of 32 possible games during that stretch, it appeared Landry was on the way down. He promptly proved that wasn't the case.
In what was a very tough season for Gang Green, Landry was one of the few bright spots and now will be paid for his production, but maybe not in New York.
The Jets have all kinds of salary cap problems thanks to now-fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum, who signed disappointing quarterback Mark Sanchez and malcontent wide receiver Santonio Holmes to big contracts with high cap numbers.
Should Landry hit the open market, he will have no shortage of teams lining up for his services.
A few teams that will be in play are the St. Louis Rams, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers. All of these organizations need a safety and have some money to spend that could attract Landry.
