There's nothing like paying more than $5 million a year for a below-average safety on the wrong side of the 30.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Gene Smith era! Let's give it a round of applause.
Yet another in a series of disastrous deals, the Jags overpaid for an average defender. Cutting Landry this year would only save the team about $1.4 million thanks to all the dead money they'd ring up.
Again, it's not that Landry is a terrible player. He's just not a good player, and he's expensive.
The same could be said for other bad deals the Jags have to contend with like Marcedes Lewis, Uche Nwarneri, Jeremy Mincey, Josh Scobee and Aaron Ross.
Any team this bad should have a lot more roster flexibility than the Jaguars do.
Watch for a mass exodus of Smith-era players over the next 13 months.
