LaRon Landry posts funny photo on Instagram after PED suspension

LaRon-Landry-jacked

Indianapolis Colts safety LaRon Landry has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, and the 29-year-old veteran had an interesting way of expressing his displeasure with people who were jumping to conclusions about the suspension on Monday.

Because of Landry’s hulking muscles, most are assuming he tested positive for steroids or something of the like. Shortly after the Colts announced the news, Landry shared the photo you see below on Instagram with a caption that read, “Sometimes things aren’t what they appear to be.”

For those of you who just gasped, that’s actually a foot between the guy’s legs. In the interest of full disclosure, I actually fell for the illusion in the picture and some Twitter followers were kind enough to point out that I missed the joke. I’m not going to explain how I interpreted the photo, because that would probably get me into trouble.

LaRon Landry: I had a fake ID when I was 4 to play football with older kids

LaRon Landry has some jokes. We already new the New York Jets safety enjoys hearing himself speak, as evidenced by the one or two boneheaded comments he seems to come out with every season. What we didn’t realize is that he also thinks he’s a funny guy, and you might even agree.

The Jets are set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday, which means Landry will have the pleasure of facing his older brother, Jags safety Dawan Landry. When discussing his childhood days of playing football on Thursday, LaRon told reporters he was always able to hang with the older kids. From the NY Daily News:

LaRon Landry, who will be playing against his brother (Jacksonville Jaguars safety Dawan Landry) this week, fondly remembered his earliest days playing football. LaRon Landry said that when he was four-years old, he had a fake ID to play in the 5-7-year old peewee football league. “They called me the hammer,” he said.

I have my doubts about whether or not a Pee Wee football league for kids that young would check birth certificates, but you get the point — these freakish pythons weren’t sculpted overnight. Hey, I laughed.

LaRon Landry: ‘I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting’

Reggie Bush was injured at the hands of the New York Jets earlier this year, and LaRon Landry does not feel the slightest bit of remorse about it. Landry and Sione Po’uha combined on the hit that fortunately caused only a minor injury to Bush’s left knee, and Landry said he is confident it will be in the back of the Dolphins running back’s mind and make him gun shy in the future.

“He will remember that hit,” Landry said Wednesday according to Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News. “Every time he sees me, he will remember that hit. Just watch the way he runs on Sunday. I’m not going to overtalk it or make it a story.”

Prior to their first meeting, Rex Ryan mentioned that the Jets need to “throw some hot sauce” on Bush because he had been running so well. After Bush hurt his knee, Calvin Pace made some questionable comments that had some wondering if the Jets were trying to injure him. That led to Bush saying Darrelle Revis’ season-ending knee injury was karma, and now the mystery is whether or not New York will retaliate on Sunday.

If it comes down to a situation where Landry meets Bush in the open field, it doesn’t sound like he intends to show any mercy.

“If I get penalized, I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting,” Landry said when asked about his aggressive style of play. “I’m not going to stop the way I play.”

Not exactly the type of comments Roger Goodell’s wants to hear from the NFL’s defensive players. It’s one thing to say you won’t change the way you play to accomodate the new rules, but calling yourself a head hunter is never a bright idea. By making these comments, Landry is simply forcing the refs to keep a close eye on him this weekend.

LaRon Landry rips Bill Belichick, Mike Shanahan and the Redskins organization

LaRon Landry is playing for the guy he wants to play for. To hell with the rest of them. Rex Ryan loves Landry’s work ethic and Landry loves Ryan’s unique and aggressive defense, which LaRon says is ultimately why he ended up in New York. However, the safety said the absence of Bill Belichick during his visit with the Patriots made his decision to not sign with New England easy.

“He wasn’t even there,” Landry told the NY Daily News. “So that was a no-brainer. I should have never taken that visit. I was like, ‘Damn, if you’re going to visit, the head coach (should be) there.’ I felt, ‘Okay, that’s a slap in the face.’”

Perhaps Belichick had to tend to an emergency. Maybe he enjoys screwing with free agents as much he enjoys screwing with the media. In any event, it wasn’t a good match.

Landry also took aim at his former coach, Mike Shanahan. The former LSU star battled Achilles injuries in 2010 and 2011, and his season ended prematurely both years as a result. The Redskins recommended surgery to mend the injury, but Landry instead opted for alternative medicine and stem-cell therapy.

“That’s why they have great doctors and they have okay doctors, great trainers and okay trainers,” he said. “(The Redskins) had people who just had the job title, but not the passion for their job. … I don’t respect the training staff at all. I don’t respect the coaches over there. I don’t respect (Shanahan). I do respect Coach (Joe) Gibbs, who brought me there, and Coach Gregg Williams. I respect that 2007 organization. After 2007 … nonexistent.”

Something tells me this guy will have trouble getting recommendations from his former employers when his NFL career comes to a close.

Adam Carriker mocks LaRon Landry muscle picture, tries to get ‘Laroning’ trending

Free agent strong safety LaRon Landry caused a frenzy by sharing a few pictures of his hulking muscles Thursday. We wondered if one of the pictures was photoshopped, but Landry says it wasn’t. Anyhow, Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker shared the above photo on his “Big Poppa Pump” Twitter account Friday to mock his teammate.

Carriker added the message “Look, I can put on a tight shirt and look really jacked too! LOL!”

Big Poppa Pump spent most of his time Friday trying to get the term “Laroning” trending on Twitter. He had a few people send in their muscle pics, but none of them were as cartoon-like as Landry’s. To be honest, unless you were using a photo editing program, it would be nearly impossible to achieve that effect. That’s right, Landry, I’m calling yours a phony.

LaRon Landry is freakishly ripped (Pictures)

LaRon Landry’s Twitter account is loaded with pictures of two things: food he eats, and topless shots of his ripped body. Judging by the picture above, he spends a heck of a lot more time working out than he does feasting.

Look at how freaking yoked he is. His biceps are three times the size of my neck and twice the size of my head. You could tattoo a portrait of Yokozuna on that thing and still have room to spare. Even his forearm is huge. I bet he could forearm curl more than I can leg press.

Not long after the picture was posted and began making the rounds, Landry defended himself saying the picture was not photoshopped and that he is not on the juice. What’s sad is all those muscles didn’t help when Landry got trucked by Brandon Jacobs in 2008.

Here’s another shot of Landry where he actually looks like a reasonable human being (albeit still ripped):

Eagles’ Mike McGlynn Says LaRon Landry Spit in His Face Twice

Trash talking is one thing.  Spitting in a person’s face is another.  The fact that we’ve now had players claiming someone spit in their face during a game two weeks in a row is pretty disturbing if you ask me.  Last week, we showed you a video that all but proved Le’Ron McClain spit in Channing Crowder’s face during the Dolphins-Ravens game.  On Tuesday, Philly.com called our attention to another alleged spitting incident, this time involving Redskins safety LaRon Landry.

Philadelphia Eagles center Mike McGlynn says Landry spit in his face twice during Monday night’s game between the Eagles and Redskins — once during an extra point attempt and again at the end of the game as the Eagles were running time off the clock.  Unlike Crowder, McGlynn kept his composure and claims Philadelphia used the incident as motivation and an excuse to run the score up on the Skins.

He spit in my face, and that really fired us all up,” McGlynn said. “We were really looking to put the afterburners on them. It’s good to see. We came out and scored 60 points, almost . . . We want to play the game with all the respect in the world. When people come out and disrespect you like that . . . I think there just has to be more respect for the game than that. That’s just a terrible thing. We just looked at is as, “Hey, keep pouring it on them.”
