    Source: Jets interested in free agent safety Dawan Landry

    BY Manish Mehta

    A couple days after the Jets lost Pro Bowl safety LaRon Landry to free agency, the Daily News has learned that his older brother, Dawan, may reunite with Rex Ryan.

    Gang Green has expressed interest in Landry, according to sources. No visit has been scheduled to this point.

    The Jets lost both starting safeties (LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell) in the first few days of free agency. They also cut Eric Smith, leaving Ryan with two inexperienced safeties in Antonio Allen and Josh Bush.

    Dawan Landry, who was cut by the Jaguars last week(another guy who won't affect our potential comp picks if we sign him), played for Ryan and defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman in Baltimore. Landry, 30, endorsed Ryan to his younger brother last year before LaRon signed a one-year deal with the Jets.

    Known as a heady player, Landry’s familiarity with Ryan’s defense would be a welcomed addition for a defense that will undergo a makeover this offseason. Landry played four seasons with the Ravens (2006-10) before signing with the Jaguars in 2011. He has started every game in the past four seasons.

    I'm okay with this, we need the depth, but I hope the young guys (Bush & Allen) get a chance to start.

    We're in a rebuilding year so we might as well get the neophytes some experience and see if they can play.

    Look at it this way. If they can't supplant Dawan Landry, they are not the players we are looking for.
    J-E-T-S! It's not exactly a passion, it's generally more of a sickness.

    FACT: The New York Jets will never win a Super Bowl with Woody Johnson as the owner.
