And the hits just keep on coming to the roster of the New York Jets.

After losing Yeremiah Bell to the Cardinals, and earlier than that, losing Shonn Greene to the Titans, the day ended with a trifecta.

It was reported that the Indianapolis Colts have signed LaRon Landry to a four year, $24 million deal that includes $14 million guaranteed.

“We’re ecstatic about this signing,” Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement released by the team. “We feel LaRon is an absolute game changer and a true impact player. We’re talking about a 220-pound safety that runs 4.3 and plays to that speed. His approach to the game and his style of play are lights out and embody the culture we’re building on the defense and this team in general.”

This one is disappointing to the fan base, and understandably so. After proving his health, LaRon was the new heart of this defense, and his spirit lifted the group to another level. His 100 tackles, 4 forced fumbles, and 2 INT’s that led to a Pro Bowl appearance will not be easy to replace as well.

You know, for a team that had such little talent on it’s roster, everyone seems to like our players.
