As New York Jets safety LaRon Landry wraps up his one-year deal with the team, there's talk of the Jets wanting to retain his services further.
But due to a clause in his contract, the Jets don't have the option of placing the franchise tag on him. So the question was asked if Landry would consider taking a "hometown discount" to stay with the team.
“What do you mean a discount?” Landry said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
“Take less over what? From where? . . . If that [were] the case, I would have taken a hometown discount and stayed with the Redskins. . . . I love the game. I love this organization. I love them for giving me an opportunity. But at the end of the day, I’m going to sit down with my agent and my family and make the best business decision.”
Wow, that's an honest answer; not used to those.
