The 27 year old Landry has played only 17 games over the previous two seasons because of injuries. The former first round pick (6th overall) graded out as a -12.6 overall and -11.0 in pass coverage on Pro Football Focus during his last full season in 2009.
Landry is also expected to make visits to three other teams.
