Pre-Arrival News: Landry’s Off Active PUP

Posted by Randy Lange on July 26, 2012 – 11:52 am

I’ve just pulled into Cortland and gotten situated at my room on campus. I’m ahead of the Jets’ team buses, which are still scheduled to leave the Atlantic Health Training Center and arrive in downtown Cortland around 3 p.m. ET.

But one news item has arrived ahead of the buses. The Jets report this morning that unrestricted free agent safety LaRon Landry (foot), three days after being placed on the team’s Active Physically Unable to Perform list, has been removed from Active PUP. No other word on Landry but it seems as if he’ll be ready to go when the Jets defense hits the SUNY Cortland practice fields for the team’s first practice Friday and then again for the first practice open to the public on Saturday morning.

No word on if Gucci the Monkey has come off Active PUP as well and is accompanying Landry north. But as he told us back during the full-squad minicamp, he’s thinking of bringing his minor YouTube celebrity pet up to his new home at some time.

One other early news item is that a Jets employee has found out that he’s a celebrity in parts of town, so much so that he has a burger named after him at a local tavern.

“It’s the first time I’ve had a burger named after me, and I am extremely honored,” said Clay Baldwin, Jets senior security (and my suite mate) of the Clay Burger that apparently has been served at Gators (83 Owego Street) for the past two years, since the team last visited Cortland for 2010 training camp. “The owner, Fred Cutia, is one of the Jets’ top fans up here and he said he was going to name a burger after me.”

The Clay Burger is a half-pound hamburger with bacon, peppers, onions and melted provolone. It’s in good company on the menu, situated below the Gator Burger and Texas Tombstone and above the Roethlis Burger. Gators also serves subs, salads, wings and pizza.

On our way to the Jets arrival ceremony, we may stop in at one of our favorite eateries in these parts, Doug’s Fish Fry. And then later today we’ll get going with more serious reporting on the Jets’ arrival for the start of training camp.

    It is time to rock and roll. Let’s hope we have a good camp, few injuries and install a few new wrinkles, like the 4-3 defense I’ve been hoping for since last year. We have even better personnel for that scheme now and it ought to give us our pass rush and force a few turnovers.
    This could well be an exciting year and I for one am ready.

    Randy, any word if the other Jet players on the PUP have been cleared to practice.

    robertpapalia, no other players on the Active PUP were taken off the list today. And as Rex Ryan said at the dorms a short while ago, LaRon Landry has been removed from the list but he’ll be on a “pitch count” that is being formulated for him.

    Randy, are you aware of anywhere players may be available tonight? My 12 year old godson is a huge fan. I was hoping he may be able to get some pictures, autographs, or player interaction before the masses flood Cortland. Thanks for your time.

    Joshua, sorry, I don’t know where any players will be tonight.

    Only in Florham Park — or rather, Cortland — is it front-page news when one of the guys who’s supposed to save us at Safety is off the PUP list. My guess is Bell holds the fort as well as he can, Smith plays himself off the team, Landry barely plays this yr, and the two rookies have flashes that prove they’re the future or at least part of it. All of which will be more proof that we’re rebuilding, GaryC.

    Great news about Landry if he is healed and able to make the impact we need on D. It would have been nice if Otah was healthy and the answer to the RT hole but, quite honestly, if he were healthy and able to play at a high level, we wouldnt have gotten him for next to nothing. The D should be fine. If the O line holds up, I think we have a strong bounce back year. Randy, any other legit RT’s out there that can be had?

    since shea, there are a few, but I’ll leave the names for our personnel pepole to consider and the beat writers to speculate about.

    while this seems to be a slow news day for us I would ask the rest of the “writing family” here to check out an articleby Bill Barnwell called “Gang Green Forecast”. the article accounts for the discrepancy between last years “points allowed” and DVOA. It’s not overly technical and gives a great overview of why we were 8-8 last year. Please take the time, it will give you some great info for this website.

    jetfantom, what constitutes rebuilding,when the jets brought in Burress, mason,tomlinson it was because they wanted to win now,and where did it get them,now they are going with younger players and your saying their rebuilding,which will only last until they get off on a winning streak to start the season then they won’t be rebuilding any longer.They have a mix of veterans and younger players,so what do you mean by rebuilding,In football today like all sports you reload,you don’t rebuild,this isn’t rome.

    You’re describing the Jet front office’s neurosis, GaryC, not mine. Last yr they thought they could win it all — without a backup C and with some of the worst safetys in the league. This yr they know they can’t win it all so they finally held onto most of their draft picks, tried a Hail Mary (truly) on Tebow, and don’t seem to be handing out new deals to Keller, Revis, and others, though the Sanchez re-up is still baffling. If they’re smart — and it’ll probably take a new owner for the org to be this smart — they’ll put their money on Slauson, Kerley, McKnight, Hill, Davis, Wilk, maybe Wilson, decide who the QB is, and worry a lot less about Revis, Cro, and, yes, Holmes. Then in a few yrs, with an elite QB, we might be getting there.

    Like Gary C said if this is rebuilding then I am fine with it I would rather have these young guys than washed up guys like Plax & Mason.

    Jeff Otah failed his physical I read that if he does not pass it in a week the trade is voided. Is that right Randy?

    Laron Landry off of the PUP that is great news if this guy plays the whole year for us he could be a difference maker & one of the better players on our D.

    Will believe Landry is ready when i see him perform……Boys and girls, the cap “situation” is THAT bad. Best hope of landing comp for Mr. Hunter will take place at end of preseason when most rosters are trimmed and where vets won’t have other options. Jets can’t outbid anyone for talent right now that’s why they’re taking shots at injured guys.

    Dang ’64 Tom it’s the first day of camp and you are already in mid season form on complaining. Nothing is good enough for you, if the jets had a miracle reciever named Jesus Christ you would think he was too short and slow. I’m sure with your infinate knowledge of football you had the Giants as a iron clad lock to win the Superbowl; even though they had every DB injured and the WR’s looked iffy at best. It’s a long season and things will evolve for the better or worse. This is our squad, like it or not so let’s all revel for the fact that football is back and hope for a great season. To carp now just makes you seem old and cranky, and nobody likes that. I know we have some holes but lets see what happens and hope for the best.

    Whats this guys real story ? Refused to have surgery and never really healed.
    Missed the end of the last 2 seasons because of it. Why do you think the Skins let him go ? It seems he has a problem with modern medical practices. When healthy he’s a great player but is he ever really going to be healty ? He should have had surgery when the injury first occured. Lots of mystery around this guy. Why did the Jets say he had a foot injury when we all know he has an achilles problem. Stranger yet, why put him on the PUP & then take him off 3 days later. Thats not normal is it ? I hope i’m wrong about this guy but something doesn’t seem right to me. Also dont think Bell is the answer. Stiil worried about the safety position. What do you all think ?

    superhumanjet, I think the first sign of old age is loss of the ability to engage in critical thinking. So sorry if allegedly red-letter days like the first day of camp at Cortland, for God’s sake, don’t stun me into dementia. I didn’t like the Tebow move, like the guys we drafted, don’t like that we still don’t have a decent RT or backup C, don’t like Mr T or Rex, like what I’ve seen of Sparano so far, and like what looks like the determination of both Sanchez and Tebow to shine at QB, even if I’d like McElroy to have an even shot with them to do so. I don’t have time to neuroticize or sentimentalize about this team, not after 43 yrs of mediocrity. Show me progress and I’ll respond, show me hype and I’ll wait for the season opener.

    1998, THAT, is what I like to refer to as “red flags” There are red flags associated with the Leron Landry signing, as well as the Otah trade. I thought that Otah “may be” completely healed, but I don’t think that is the case. Landry on the other hand? we can only HOPE that he is completely healed. But I will be honest, I have my doubts. The thing is, if Landry IS NOT completely healed, who are the starting safety’s?

  23. By scjoe on Jul 27, 2012 | Reply

    Wayne, the only problem with your scenario above is the fact that a veteran RT released by another club at the end of preseason will have little or no time to learn the offense and the blocking schemes before he goes up against Mario Williams and the Bills defense.

    SUPERHUMANJET, sorry 64 but that was pretty funny stuff. He got you there! iI know where both of you are coming from as like 64 I am a long time sufferer.But this is a new season so we as fans have hope. But at some point realism needs to prevail. We do have holes and questions that need answers.1998, Apparently Landry’s electing to not have surgery is not that unusual. Dr’s often give the patient the option of surgery or wearing a special boot that imobilizes the injury and allows it to heal on its own. A good friend of mine elected that option and within 6 months was doing great! He was back to 100% in less than a yr which is the same time frame as the surgery with out the risk of infection or other complications(blood clots,nerve damage)

    He did get 64 pretty good but 64 has been a lot better since the draft. He is excited about our young players and obviously he really likes Sparano. I do gotta agree tho that in no way is this a rebuilding yr, We have a solid team so if the O line plays well and MS takes his game to the next level the sky is the limit. Of course there is a lot of ifs but every team including NE has ifs. Heck if Welker holds on to that ball on 3rd down with 4 min left in SB then NE goes up 2 scores with under 4min to play. I think inside 64 is excited about this season but doesn’t wanna be made a fool yet again like he has since 1969. He is coming around some lately tho
