Jets SS LaRon Landry Hit With $15K Fine, Will Appeal
LaRon Landry is vowing to appeal, not change his ways, after being slapped with a fine for an alleged horse-collar tackle by the NFL Friday.
The Jets’ hard-hitting safety was docked $15,750 for dragging down Steelers wideout Antonio Brown during Sunday’s 27-10 loss at Pittsburgh, but Landry disputed the league’s version of events.
“From looking at the tape, I didn’t even pull his shoulder pads at all,” Landry said after practice. “My hands are on top of his shoulder pads, but I didn’t grab the back of them at his neck.”
In addition to the fine, it was the third personal-foul penalty in Landry’s first two games as a Jet. The veteran defender, who signed in the offseason after five seasons with the Redskins, said all the recriminations won’t prompt him to change his approach.
“I’m not going to let that change me as a player — not at all,” Landry said. “I’ve got to be a little smarter, but I’m not going to stop my style of play.I’m just trying to win and do anything to make a play. I’m not really worried about my pocket and how much money it’s going to cost for me to make a play.”
