The public and media can not get enough of the saga known as New York Jets' training camp.
Despite the numerous conflicts that have been widely reported, the Jets have also seen their share of positives.
One of these positives is the performance of veteran safety LaRon Landry.
Landry has been far-and-away the best player in Jets' training camp so far.
Despite missing the first week of practice recovering from an Achilles heel injury he suffered last year, Landry's impact on the defense is unprecedented.
The 27-year-old has impressed so much in training camp that the Jets coaching staff has compared him to the mighty Ed Reed.
"As good as Ed Reed is," said defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman, "we've never had an athlete like LaRon Landry that can do the things he can do."
Thurman coached Reed in Baltimore earlier in his career, so his comparisons between the All-Pro safety and Landry aren't completely futile.
Landry, who signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal with New York this offseason, has struggled with injuries throughout his career, but he has the potential to be a superstar player when on the field.
Landry's physicality is unmatched on the football field. He has the ability to be a huge factor in Rex Ryan's blitz packages, as well as in pass coverage.
Earlier this week, the former first-round pick vowed to get physical with opposing tight ends. That kind of play is desperately needed by a Jets secondary that struggled defending the interior passing game last season.
Landry's goal for this year is too be a complete defensive player.
"I'm trying not to be one-dimensional," explained Landry, "I love to do it all—man-to-man coverage, blitzing, whatever."
So far this season, Landry is living up to his own aspirations.
