New York Jets safety LaRon Landry is happy to be able to face off against Dolphins running back Reggie Bush this coming Sunday, after being a part of the hit that injured Bush the last time the Jets played the Dolphins.
“I’m grateful for another opportunity to play this guy,” Landry said. “And he will remember that hit. Every time he sees me he will remember that hit. If I’m in the box or I’m coming downhill, whatever – he will remember that hit. I don’t worry about what those guys say.”
Landry believes that the hit that he and Sione Po’uha laid on Bush still lingers in Bush’s mind.
“Just watch the way he runs,” Landry said. “We’ll see when he comes out here this Sunday. We’ll just have to wait and see. I’m not going to say too much. I’m not going to overtalk it and make a story. Just gotta wait and see.”
Landry says he won’t stop headhunting.
“You kind of feel, when you’re pursuing to the ball, how they kind of change their style up,” Landry said. “You get a feel of how they are as a person. Who their mentality is and how they go about playing ball. It’s their personality. Me, if I get penalized, I’m not going to stop headhunting or nothing or stop the way I play. That’s just my mentality, that’s my personality, that’s my makeup.”
I’m sure the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell love hearing that Landry won’t stop going after other players.
