As unit previews and positional analysis start pouringin preparation of Redskins training camp, one truth will become oh so clear, if it's not alreadt: the safeties are the shakiest bunch on the roster. That's why no matter how much every reporter, blogger and fan focuses on all things burgundy and gold, attention will be paid to the goings on in Cortland, New York.That is where the Jets summer, training camp wise that is. It's where LaRon Landry is working his way back from an Achilles injury that essentially turned him into ex-Redskins safety LaRon Landry. The Jets announced Monday that the insanely muscular 27-year-old has been place on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list as they prep for the start of camp, according to ProFootballTalk.com. Previously Landry sat out the Jets various practice sessions with the injury, one that kept him off the field for half of the 2011 season. Landry missed 15 games over the past two seasons in Washington, but continues to claim he'll be ready for the 2012 campaign.While the Redskins went all in on a certain young quarterback and spent serious coin on some intriguing receivers, they went with a patchwork approach at safety. Veteran free agents castoffs Brandon Meriweather, Tanard Jackson and Madieu Williams not only joined the fray, they form the nucleus of the unit along with holdover Reed Doughty and rising second-year player DeJon Gomes.Moving on from Landry, hard to quibble with that call. How the Redskins chose to replace him, a different story. That tale could involve some serious revisionist history should the ex-Redskin shine as a Jet. Of course, he first must get on the field.
