Landry says that he and the Redskins are “cool”

New Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has been laying down the law during his brief tenure with the team. The Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb amd DT Albert Haynesworth has been on the trade block.

Safety LaRon Landry also has had his name involved in trade talks. He briefly walked out of the team’s voluntary offseason workouts, but said that he and the team are “cool” now, reports the Washington Post.

He even said that he was not hurt by the trade talks.

“During that time, as far as a trade being concerned with me, I didn’t take it as a negative thing or being upsetting,” Landry said . “I looked at it like this: There are other teams who wanted me. They really wanted me. If the Skins wanted to give me up, I’d be gone by now.”

Landry was really channeling that Stuart Smalley personal affirmation there. If the Redskins don’t like me, there is somebody who will.

Landry also said that he was working on bulking up, looking to play at 240 this season, perhaps trying to avoid plays like this.

Some other notes on the Redskins from the Post.

Linebackers London Fletcher and Brian Orkapo are bullish on the team’s new 3-4 scheme. That is a stark departure from Haynesworth, who has openly complained about his role in the new scheme.

And former offensive lineman Chris Samuels will represent the Redskins during the draft. A draft that will be aired live and in Primetime at 7:30 p.m. ET Thursday night, and continue Friday at 6 p.m. ET and Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, all on NFL Network.
