LaRon Landry Excited About New Role

Regime change in the NFL usually means wholesale changes in how both the offense and defense are coordinated. That appears to be the case with the Redskins now that Mike Shanahan has been hired and has brought along Jim Haslett to coordinate his defense. One significant change that Haslett appears to be interested in implementing is bringing the hard-hitting LaRon Landry closer to the line of scrimmage from his strong safety position:

SS LaRon Landry is probably the happiest defender in camp. Landry is being used closer to the line of scrimmage this season, much as he was for half of his rookie year in ‘07. Landry can be more aggressive in the new scheme and should be a factor against the run and on the blitz. The past two years, his job was mainly to stop big plays deep.
