Free agent safety LaRon Landry arrived in New York Sunday for a visit with the New York Jets, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. Sources told Cimini that Landry spent the night and toured the team's facilities on Monday morning.
Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that Landry, who has played all five seasons of his career with the Washington Redskins, also visited the New England Patriots and has a visit scheduled with the Detroit Lions this week.
Landry has shown flashes of brilliance during his five-year career, but injury problems have limited him during the last two seasons. After managing 90 tackles, a sack and an interception in 15 games during 2009, Landry was setting the NFL on fire to begin 2009. But an Achilles injury forced him to miss the final seven games of the season, and he ended the year with 85 tackles, a sack and an interception. The Achilles flared up again in 2011 and Landry only managed to suit up for eight games.
