Jets Sign S Dawan Landry

Just weeks after losing starting safety LaRon Landry to the Indianapolis Colts during free agency, the New York Jets inked older brother Dawan to a new contract.

April 9, 2013 - The New York Jets have signed free agent S Dawan Landry.

Landry (S/6-1/212/Georgia Tech/Boutte, LA) entered the NFL as a fifth-round selection by Baltimore in the 2006 NFL draft. He spent five seasons with the Ravens, playing his first three campaigns under Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan, who was Baltimore's defensive coordinator. Landry signed with Jacksonville as an unrestricted free agent (07/30/11), where he played for two years before he was released (03/08/13). In seven NFL seasons, he has started 96-of-98 games and has recorded 678 tackles, 12 interceptions, 5.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. In 2012, Landry started all 16 contests and registered a career-high 176 tackles.
