Zorn: Landry Hasn't Returned Calls


Safety LaRon Landry is now the only Redskin who is unaccounted for during this round of offseason workouts. Linebacker London Fletcher and fullback Mike Sellers - who declined comment as they left the field today - both returned to work out earlier this week after missing Monday and Tuesday.

"I think each one of those guys, they have their plan," Coach Jim Zorn said today. "They're working their plan. Talking to London, he planned on being back. He planned on participating. He's working his plan. I think Mike's doing the same thing.

"The thing I was excited about both those guys just got right into it and started practicing hard. They've got a lot of recall themselves."

Landry, though, is not here, and Zorn said he has not been able to reach the third-year player by either telephone or text message.

"I think it's disappointing to his teammates as well," Zorn said. "But he's going to be ready. I fully expect him to be ready in training camp and go hard and have a great year. I'm not as concerned about him missing as just being a part of what his teammates are doing and the kind of stuff we're trying to implement here. He's going to be set back a little bit because of maybe a new concept here or there, but he's a tremendous athlete, and I think he'll be a good teammate."

This sounds Awfully familiar. He is not the FIRST safety to do this....

Let's see if they hate on him as ST21 was hated on......

The Redskins really need Landry to step up and be worthy of the #6 pick. So far he's been solid, but not spectacular. He should be causing fumbles and making interceptions on a regular basis. At this point, Landry should be considered a bust. You don't take a safety at #6 and expect pedestrian, plug-the-gap output.

They oughta have a rule. Vets with 5+ years can skip OTAs. And if they do show ... nothing but walk thrus.

The OTAs are about the younger guys anyway -- let them get their time to show what they can do.

Last thing anyone needs are vets getting hurt.

Landry is our best defensive player, whether he knows it or not he should be at OTA's... but I doubt this will have any effect on his playing ability. He is a natural playmaker dont forget he made a game saving hit against the eagles in the second game of his carrear. Just put him on the field and he will produce

I think it’s been brought up before that Landry isn’t playing the position of “strong” safety that he was drafted for. He was drafted for his skills up on the line, but when they lost S Taylor, Landry had the best skill set to replace him as the roamer, or deep safety. Wouldn’t label him a bust, just another case of the Skins putting someone in a role that doesn’t necessarily suit their best skills. He should be at the OTA’s though…..

How hard is it to return a call or txt mssge. That's just respect and common courtesy.(Oh that's right I forgot, not traits valued by some young folks these days)
How many of us are going to not return a call from our boss?

I too think he hasn't lived up to the hype, but I hope he does. He seems to be sort of a jerk though, and when Jacobs(Giants) ran him over like a rag doll last year, I thought he had it coming.

I think you have to say Haynesworth is our best defensive player now. And before it was Fletcher anyway.

LaRon may have the impressive atheletic build, but he has yet to prove he's the best football player on that D. I'm all for it tho. C'mon suun.

It's so hard to root for these guys when they are so far removed from the every day man. With veteran leadership like Smoot and Portis; I guess it makes sense.

Cork, to be fair Betts isn't a 2nd rounder that didn't pan out. He's a guy that got replaced by a "name" guy when Portis b*tched his way out of Denver. I still believe that if Gibbs had come in here and played a season with what he had on offense, this team would have been better off. I think you would have seen Betts have more seasons like the one in 2006 after Portis got hurt and the team would have one less mammoth salary on its books right now.

Posted by: brownwood26

You make a point that can neither be disputed or proven. Maybe if Betts had left the comfort zone of DC and taken his act elsewhere, you['d have your answer.

But if Betts retired today, he would be a "second round bust" by every definition imaginable.

It's never an even playing field. For comparison , Frerotte, selected very late, beat out a #3 overall pick on the same team. I believe that ahd Betts shown enough talent and ability to stay healthy eithr the Portis trade would not have been made, or he would have had many more opportunities to prove himself and rest a worn out back.

Hey, sometimes backs defy the odds and arrive late--let's hope that is bett's case.

Landry has cancelled 2 signings at a local sports store, was a no show at the last Redskins Beach Blitz the day of the event, and he dosent participate in the activities. I have been contemplating getting his jersey, but this kinda stuff makes me think of picking up someone else who is more committied.

Your harshly made point is well taken. I'd note that a lot of Regualr Jo0es can't even get thos $10 n hour gigs, or were laid off from one.

This ain['t the sopranos. Football isn't a "No-show" job. Not going to practices is no way to become a fan favorite, and fan favorites fare better than reviled athletes--except at wideout.

In this economic climate, unless Landry was doing charity work or rescuing orphans in Uganda, he's gonna take a hit that could follow him a long time. Life after football benefits from being a fan fav too.

It's a snarky world, dude, make allowances.

Not showing up by Landry is weak. He's still young and the whole secondary is young. Plus, its one of the more complicated positions on the defense.

I agree that its bad to miss these things for young players -- but geez, not to call back to your boss -- who is paying you boatloads -- Bad Bad form.

I know these are optional organized team activities, but at least answer the phone, dude. Man up and tell the coach that you aren't going to be there. This just seems so disrespectful, and it's coming from a guy they want to be a leader on this team. I mean, heck, he's the senior safety on the roster, right? He needs to be out there busting his hump the hardest showing the other guys how it is done.

Posted by: RedSkinHead | June 4, 2009 2:41 PM | Report abuse

I would never recruit any player from the "U", nothwithstanding S. Moss being an atypical example. You get the feeling that Landry thinks this is how a top flight player should act. He problably has been schooled by his U-mate, Clinton Portis. If I was an owner or coach, I wouldn't have it as the behavior is totally unprofessional.

I seem to remember one Sean Taylor pulling this same crap with Joe Gibbs...no call, no show AND no returned phone calls. Everyone biched (spelling intentional...friggin' editors!) about it at the time, yet canonized the man after he was killed. Cut the prima donna some slack. Maybe he'll come around/start growing up just as Sean was in the process of doing when he died.

It is not mandatory. While it is definitely great if he shows up, it is not mandatory. So, when people pile on about them being selfish athletes etc and compare them to the rest of us, its not a fair comparison.

If you are an accountant, and you get paid the same regardless. If you have a 3 month vacation, and your employer said, he come with your co-workers to this tax return workshop, if you had security in knowing you were one of the best accountatnts, you might not interrupt your vacation.

Thats a fair comparison. Players can be fined, and have pay withheld if they miss mandatory requirements, but this isn't one of them.

Only thing they can do is reward you for coming, but not penalize you financially for not showing up.

Someone must have told them there would be an autograph signing at the OTA's...dude is notoriously unreliable.

No problem with him skipping out if he is working out on his own like Springs used to, but you HAVE to return the coach's calls. NO excuse on that one.

Chalk it up to immaturity. He needs to be stepping up as the leader of that group, instead Doughty is going to have to take that role now. Which is fine with me frankly. That guy busts his butt week in and week out...

Landry isn't good enough to miss OTAs. Not returning your coach's phone calls is showing a lot of passive-aggressive behavior. What's with that? Not sure Landry is a true football player, the type of guy that loves the game and being on the team. Too bad because the team really needs him to be a leader.

Posted by: chris_zz | June 4, 2009 4:52 PM | Report abuse

Landry needs to step up and be a leader. That starts with participating at OTA's whether or not he's happy about playing free safety vs. strong safety. My gut tells me that he isn't happy with his position and is trying to send the team a message. He knows that the Skins need him badly as Horton and Doughty are not strong in coverage, but he's hurting himself in the lockerroom by being a no-show.

Considering we no longer have Springs' as the leader in the secondary, it was expected the Landry would fill that role.

BTW, Landry played at LSU, not the U as someone erroneously posted earlier.

There simply isn't any justifiable reason you blow off the coach, other than the cat, and his crew, can't get to the phone.

It's totally disrespectful and becomes just another unnecessary distraction. Yep, the OTA's are voluntary but not returning calls or sending a text to your boss is "Bush league saga stuff. Laughable man" as Jesus Santana so eloquently put it.

jpt1002,

First of all how many real world jobs do you know of where attendance is "optional"? And if your boss called and texted you, would you just not return the call? In the real world you wouldn't have a job for long.

The main point is not that he's not "there", but that he hasn't responded to his coaches's calls and text messages, which shows no common courtesy nor respect. Also it's not like he's lit up the NFL or made the Pro Bowl.

At least be man enough, respectful enough to respond to your coach with, "Due to such and such I will not/won't be attending OTA's. That can't be that hard to do, can it?

A venom free objective look.

Yes OTAs are completely optional and no player should have to go to them.

How-EV-er, so is a team re-negotiating a contract before it ends.

So does this mean teams should just tell players "too bad" or "suck it, you're under contract." or, "We don't care how much better you're playing no new deals until this one expires, Mr. Player?"

Of course not. Courtesy and flexibility is a two-way street.

With certain jobs come certain responsibilites not specifically enumerated in the physical contract deal.

If you are happy cashing team checks, then the least you should do is say "hey coach/team, I'm okay, I'm just catching up on some family stuff/me time/whatever here in "x", and want you to know I'll be back and ready to go soon."

Not only as a courtesy but hey, heaven forbid something happens good OR bad.

Wouldn't a player feel stupid if by not answering a team call they pee-peed all over their chance at a raise or contract extension?

I know (all other things being about even) if I called a player and got NO response, I'd certainly choose to extend or pay more to the guy who DID call/text/e-mail me back over the guy who didn't.

I'm not sayin'....I'm just sayin'...

I guess the one aspect that makes me cringe, is they try to come back too strong and screw up. The other is, the pattern of ethics.

Why is it that a good, no near great player is disgruntled or distracted or needs to seperate himself from everyone else, go to Phoenix or Florida and THEIR thing. I still think its because other players from other teams are sometimes comparing contracts, notes and maybe even close to tampering on behalf of their coach, but you will NEVER hear it publicly.

Let's be for real, who's the number one source of picking our pockets for players around now. The NY Giants. Burress too - zap! Ok name some more - yep, back of your mind. Well up to training camp it does happen. What is the advantage? How was it so quickly done, when we were dealing with Pierce and zap! He was gone. It can happen and yet you never will hear about it. OK unless it was us with Albert H.

Hm. I guess someone there believed it can happen in Tennessee, huh?

remember NE. How do other teams know to pluck so quick - its NOT magic. Its a practice and no one likes to speak about it.

So just because one would like to think nice thoughts and relax, the opposition's always thinking way ahead of the GAME to win before they step on the field.

Coach, sorry, I would be on the phone and tell him, are you team or are you in the clouds. When you seperate just before training camp, it ALWAYS has a negative impact.

Three players come to mind - ST, Shaun Springs (too many injuries after being alone (YOUR BONIFIDE TEAM TRAINER is not around you soon enough to help you), and Santana Moss (he had a down period and some injuries early on, again, TEAMWORK and what the TRAINER can notice that friends at the hotels can't).

Each year reporters do their best to stir up controversy over players not attending events that are not mandatory. Would I prefer they be there? ABSOLUTELY! However, its not mandatory so GET OVER IT! If the Redskins are so hard over on people showing up to non-mandatory activities they could MAKE THEM MANDATORY, CHANGE THEIR CONTRACTS, GIVE THEM A BONUS! And what really irritates me are these weasel reporters interrogating other players and trying to get them to say something bad against the no-shows.

All this whining about Landry not attending an "OPTIONAL" workout is ridiculous. If it's so important that he attend, then make the workout mandatory. Stop calling it an OTA. And for the fans, don't compare this guys to yourself. You are nothing like him and he nothing like you. The career of an NFL player is short and very dangerous. Any player would be wise to reduce the amount of practice sessions and collisions they endure, especially during so called "OTAs". Several players around the league have already been injured during such activity (see Terrence McGee, Buffalo).


He negotiated a contract with the club that requires him to show up at training camp, practice, and game days. That's it. If your employer asked you to come to work while you were on vacation, you wouldn't show up either.

Posted by: otter78 | June 6, 2009 3:49 PM | Report abuse

I forgot to mention that he could be taking care of a very personal matter and just is now getting over what happened.

and oh, OTTER78. He's NOT on vacation. Sounds logical what you are saying but ATHLETES, professional anyway aren't CONVENTIONAL employees nor are Military, Police, Fireman. They are STILL required to show up, even though the word is VOLUNTARY, due to TEAM GOALs, face it, its a way to get around having to MANDATORY or TRAINING CAMP but trust me, the players KNOW what it means, even though YOU don't.

Its NOT whining when its OUR money and others and ask this - Why is ONLY two people not there, I belive, instead of the rest of the roster, if your so called whining from us holds any water?

Unless you are Landry you can't speak for him is the better answer for anyone, but face it, if his OWN freakin' leaders don't hear from him and he is that cocky, the Redskins will suck again.

Yeah he's a starter, so what, if he's not TEAM oriented. Me personally, I am tired of the SPECIAL needs kid minded players needing so much pampering and special care. F em!

This is the second straight year Landry has been AWOL from summer activities. If he would have come in last training camp and been the beast he should be, I wouldn't have a problem with it.
Instead, he missed last summer then he missed most of training camp with a "hammy" issue, although he could race CP for fun.
Then because of his missed work he was embarassed on National TV by Brandon Jacobs who bowled him over like a duck pin.
Bottom line, when you are there all summer and training camp, it shows up in the games and when you are not there, that shows up too.
I really like Landry and hope he gets it together, but he is seeming more like Roy Williams than Adrian Wilson and ask yourself who you would want on your team!

I have two problems with Laron Landry. If the coach calls you or sends you a text message you return his call. It's just common curtesy. If you are working out in Arizona or someplace else you tell the coach. Now I hear he decided to show up for the last day of OTAs. Showing up for one day doesn't make up for his recent behavior.

The other point is that the Redskins were the last place team in a very tough division last season. The NFC East will be even tougher this upcoming season. Everybody on the team needs to get much better. That includes Laron Landry who hasn't done anything yet on the field to make me forget #21.
