Landry becomes a poster child for successfully rebuilding your brand on a one-year deal. Landry was coming off back-to-back injury-wrecked seasons with the Washington Redskins when he signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the New York Jets last March.

Landry was an impact player in New York, playing all 16 games and earning a Pro Bowl nod. The Jets wanted to hold on to him, but salary-cap woes took them out of the running. A clause in Landry's deal kept the Jets from using their franchise tag to retain him.

Landry excels in the box, where his ferocious hitting ability will give the Colts' defense a much-needed intimidation factor. This is a deal that should make both sides very happy.
