NEW YORK (AP)

The New York Jets are replacing departed safety LaRon Landry with his brother.

Dawan Landry has signed with the Jets, nearly a month after his younger brother left New York to sign with the Indianapolis Colts as a free agent. Dawan Landry, 30, played the last two seasons with Jacksonville before being released last month.

He spent five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, playing his first three years under Rex Ryan, who was Baltimore's defensive coordinator, and current Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. Landry has started all but two games in his seven-year career and has 12 interceptions, three touchdowns and 5 1/2 sacks.

The Jets were thin at safety after the departures of both starters, LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell, and the release of Eric Smith.
