I agree with Rich Cimini’s thoughts here. Landry is the bigger name of the ones that the Jets were interested in, but yet, maybe not the more productive one. They lost out on Reggie Nelson, who has been healthy and makes more plays on the ball than Landry does. He has been hurt, and, although we don’t see a lot of LeRon Landry here in NY, from what I have seen he is not a great cover guy at safety. If the Jets are looking for a guy that is going to give trouble to the likes of Rob Gronkowski and others, this might not be the guy.

We have also learned that the Jets also had a visit from Jarret Bush, safety formerly of the Green Bay Packers. In 6 seasons in Green Bay, Bush has shown that he can make a play on the ball, with 22 passes defended and 3 INTs. He has added 130 tackles over his career, making a good potential addition to the Jets backfield.
