No hometown discount from Landry for Jets

Per Rotoworld via Daily News. Not to worry, I hear players love to play for Rex

LaRon Landry told the New York Daily News that he will not take a hometown discount this offseason to re-sign with the Jets.

The Jets took a flier on Landry when few wanted him in 2012 free agency. He's 28 years old and won't be repaying Jets management for giving him the shot. "What do you mean (by) a discount?" Landry said. "Take less over what? From where? ... I’m going to sit down with my agent and family and make the best business decision." Landry has 89 tackles, four forced fumbles, and two interceptions this year. Pro Football Focus has also graded him positively in coverage.

Laundry's never gotten his big payday. Makes sense that he goes after it at 28 years old.

But yeah, players derpderping for Rexderp....

I understand that it is a business, and he needs to make the best decision for him and family, but there are better ways to say it. He's obviously a high character guy who has a way with words.

i honestly can't see anything wrong with what he said. If it were the team that drafted him for over 7 years or something, then maybe.

Players sometimes give discounts to teams that gave them a chance, if they like the system, if they like the program, if they like the coaches.

Is it a given? Of course not.

One would expect that the affinity that players have for Rex with his dynamic personality, that players would come here for less.

If I was on the market, and I had competing bids from my current company and a company someplace else that I was not familiar with, I would give my current company a discount. I am established in the community, my kids are established in the schools, and I know the people I will be working with. That is of value to me.

Wow. You really have so much in common with the average NFL player.

They thought nothing of giving that sh!tring Kerry Rhodes $33.5mm over 5. You would think they'd give something decent to a guy makes the opposing receivers hear footsteps.

And you have so much in common with John Lennon

The question was asked if I would take a discount for my current employer

I play guitar, my name is John, and I dig Asian chicks. I suspect that puts me way ahead in this game.

Typical Tannembaum. Lands a strong FA and can't convince him to come back for cheap. Gosh this is the worst.

Minutes after injury: Jets cut Landry, he walks away with less than half of what he signed. #NFLmuhfckas

Exactly. This is not a "home town" discount situation. Just Scott hating...

From what I had heard from the Jets, players want to come play for Ryan, without having even been here. The fact that someone will not stay for a little less is somewhat telling.

Draw your own conclusions.

I have. A player who's injury prone is looking for possibly his last big pay day. Only a hater would spin this into some type of indictment on Rex Ryan.
