Landry helps fuel Colts' monster

ANDERSON, Ind. — His physique is intimidating and Hulk-like. His play on the field even more so.

But has Colts safety LaRon Landry built himself on being a physical monster?

"Nah, I build myself on winning," Landry said Sunday after the Colts' first training camp walkthrough at Anderson University's Macholtz Stadium.

The seven-year NFL veteran arrived for his first camp with Indianapolis on Saturday and was happy to be back to work Sunday. Landry said the team is picking up right where it left off in June's mini-camp in Indianapolis.

"Now it's time to get ready for the season," Landry said. "As a whole, it feels great to be out here and get back into the swing of things."

Landry, a product of LSU, spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Washington Redskins. After a promising start, he was hampered by injury in 2010 and 2011, playing nine and eight games, respectively.

He signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the New York Jets last season and played in all 16 games.

During the rebound year, Landry recorded the most tackles of his career (99), forced four fumbles and grabbed two interceptions, taking one back for a touchdown.

Now with the Colts, on a four-year, $24 million contract, the Pro Bowler says, for him, there's not much difference between Washington, New York and Indianapolis.

"To me football is football. I come in and give it all I got just to help my team win," Landry said. "It's a great atmosphere, a winning atmosphere. I just love it out here."

Landry and cornerback Greg Toler were added in the offseason to shore up the Colts' last line of defense.

Landry will take over for Tom Zbikowski, now in camp with the Chicago Bears, and be paired with eight-year veteran Antoine Bethea, who he has trained with in Arizona during the offseason. He said that while he and Bethea need to work on communication, their chemistry is already there.
