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. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

5 Replacements for Rex Ryan, Jets

The New York Jets may be on their way to making a playoff push but don’t be fooled. This season is by far the most frustrating and most disappointing of Rex Ryan’s tenure as Head Coach.

Here's a quick look at this weeks games. NY...

New York Jets Defensive Film Breakdown: Week 14

Through a tumultuous up and down 2012 season, the New York Jets have experienced some all-time lows in the Rex Ryan era, this year.

Jets focusing on struggling Titans, not playoffs

Rex Ryan is taking nothing for granted, not the way this season has gone for the New York Jets. The Jets still have hope that a favorable schedule will give them a chance at the playoffs even after a 3-6 start. Ryan, though, is taking it one game at a time, beginning with the woeful Tennessee Titans on Monday night. ''I know we have three games left in the regular season...
