DAVIE–It’s hard to imagine NFL players preoccupying themselves with preseason rankings and lists, but sometimes those are too irritating to simply ignore.
As a way of making sure he remembers where he peers placed him, Landry keeps a sign (printed up by team staffer Kaleb Thornhill) taped on his locker. It’s a photo of him with “97?” superimposed next to him.
“It’s my preseason motivation,” Landry said. “Ninety-seven slots to go.”
Does it actually motivate him?”
“Of course,” he said. “I see it every day.”
