LaRon Landry has not been able to do much on the practice field for the New York Jets, thanks to injury. However, that hasn’t stopped him from learning his new team’s defense. Position coach Dennis Thurman gave him his playbook early, and feels that LaRon will be ready to go, as coverages for most defenses are similar or the same, the difference is in how they say it:

“He had his playbook and we spent time together earlier when he was here,” he said. “Like I said, the transition from one team to another, it’s not about the coverage because they’ve played the coverage before, it’s about the terminology. “But it’s also about us and how we do things just a little bit differently than most people so I don’t expect him to have any problems, he hasn’t shown he’ll have any problems and our expectations are that he’ll give us what he gave Washington only with an improvement in terms of his health and his ability to stay on the field.”
