This offseason has certainly been an interesting one for Mike Tannenbaum and the New York Jets, has it not? Interesting is one word for it. Puzzling might be another word. It has had its quiet moments, where we thought we would have heard more from the Jets, and there have been the active moments, where the Jets have come out of nowhere to do the unexpected (we know who that is we don’t need to say his name). The Jets certainly know how to stay in the news, don’t they?
My question is, what is the plan? How are they really improving the team for 2012?
Let’s take a look at things to date.
One of the Jets biggest needs is a safety that can cover someone better than Eric Smith. That translates into, the Jets need a safety that can cover anybody. Smith made it clear that he cannot do that. So what do the Jets do?
They go out and get Laron Landry. Notable name? No doubt. He is also an active player, especially in the run game. However, what he isn’t known for is his ability in pass coverage. He is actually suspect in his pass coverage, with no more than 2 INTs when he played a full season. Does that help? We don’t really know, do we?
He is also coming off of injury, which is never good.
