So, you most likely saw the anecdote recently about how the Washington Redskins are the NFL's oldest team. Given how the NFL is set up structurally, that's not necessarily a bad thing provided that there's still a modicum of speed on the roster. The Redskins do indeed have some burners and capable young playmakers on both sides of the ball.
One such guy is LaRon Landry, the hard-hitting safety out of Louisiana State University who struggled at times last year despite posting a career high with 89 tackles. Landry of course underwent surgery in late June to repair a damaged toe but appears to be on schedule to return to action by the time the 'Skins training camp opens up on July 29th.
Jason Reid of the Post has the scoop:
Safety LaRon Landry, coming off a disappointing 2009 season, underwent successful toe surgery recently and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, two people familiar with the procedure said Wednesday.
Landry should be able to join the Redskins when they open camp July 29 at Redskins Park, the sources said. The three-year veteran has added muscle in anticipation of his move from free safety to strong safety this season.
