Giants’ Great Sean Landeta Greets Fans
Sean Landeta greeted fans, posed for pictures and signed autographs last night at Food and Fire BBQ and Taphouse, 560 Harry L Drive in Johnson City. He watched his former team, the New York Giants on Monday Night Football along with dozens of Giants' followers.
Landeta brought along two Super Bowl rings and a pair of Super Bowl trophies from his years with the Giants. He play with New York from 1985-1993 and again in 2006. He saw duty with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999-2002 and in 2005. He also played for the Rams, Buccaneers and Packers over his 22- year NFL career.
Landeta was quite a success story. Born in Baltimore, he didn't receive a lot of interest from colleges during his high school career. Division II Towson State offered him a scholarship and he took it from there.
He began his pro football career in the USFL with the Philadelphia Stars in 1983-84 and the Baltimore Stars in 1985 before joining the Giants.
Landeta had a storied pro career. He was a two-time NFL Pro Bowl selection, a six-time All-Pro, named to the NFL's 1980's and 1990's All-Decade Teams and a USFL All-time Team honoree.
