Titans OLB Harold Landry leads NFL in pressures after four games

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Harold Landry has been extremely consistent when rushing the passer this season, and has the statistics to back it up.

Pro Football Focus, who rounds up (24.5 becomes 25), actually has Landry credited with 25 pressures this season (as opposed to the 23 pictured above), 10 of which came against the gimpy Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.

Thus far in 2021, Landry has compiled 20 total tackles (12 solo) and 2.5 sacks, including Tennessee’s lone QB takedown against the Jets in Week 4. You’d love to see Landry convert some of these pressures into more sacks, but there’s another issue at hand here. Landry has often been the lone member of the Titans’ front seven to pressure the QB, giving him plenty of room to evade the pressure and step up into the pocket. This is where the Titans badly need Bud Dupree to get healthy and start impacting the quarterback.

Landry’s two and a half sacks are tied for 25th.

There is plenty of season ahead for Landry to catch up in terms of sacks. He’s made it clear that he’s a force to be reckoned with on the edge, so the sacks should keep coming.

Landry is in the final season of his four-year rookie contract.
