The Boston Herald reports that sources have informed them that the Patriots will bring S LaRon Landry in for a visit on Friday.
New England is believed to have serious interest in Landry who has been a pretty popular free agent despite the fact that he has a serious injury history to consider.
We have him listed as the #27 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
Previous reports have mentioned that Landry isn’t expected to be returning to Washington next season so you’d have to think that teams like the Patriots Jets, Bears, Eagles, and Lions all have a good shot at upgrading the safety position.
Landry is by far the best available player at the position.
Cole mentions that teams interested in Landry are the Jets, Bears, Eagles, and Lions.
McLane specifically mentions Landry’s Achilles as being a concern for the team.
Cole expects to see the Redskins try to keep but that could be really tough considering that there’s already decent market shaping up.
Safety is without a doubt a position of need for the Jets as they’ve had a number of injuries to players in recent seasons. The problem with this idea is that Landry has an injury history of his own to be concerned with, as he’s currently rehabbing from a torn Achilles tendon. Still, Landry could end up being a steal for someone if he’s able to rebound from the injury. Talent is not the question with this guy.
