Jets Free Agency 2012: LaRon Landry 'I Am Glad To Be A Jet'

LaRon Landry, one of the newest New York Jets free agent signings, is happy to be with the team (via Sports Radio Interviews).

"Oh man I am glad to be a Jet."

When asked what other options Landry had, he responded that the Patriots, Eagles, Lions and Bears were potential landing spots.

When it came down to it, Landry picked the Jets because of head coach Rex Ryan, defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman as well as the organization itself.

"I mean Coach Rex - he is a phenomenal coach. Coach DT [Dennis Thurman] coached my brother in Baltimore. Overall a player is driven to what an organization seems like. I love that. The medical staff and a great GM, a great owner and a facility that is phenomenal. I really loved it and really loved my visit and everything went well, so I sealed the deal."

Landry feels that the Jets are a good fit for him as their defensive style will allow him to make plays rather than fit a role as a strong safety or free safety.
