Washington Redskins free agent safety LaRon Landry, he of the comically large biceps, will visit the Detroit Lions, according to Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports. Detroit is one of four visits Landry will make along with New England, the New York Jets and a mystery team. Coles says that the Bears are also interested.
Landry visited the Patriots on Friday.
Landry would give the Lions a run-stopping specialist and a big hitter to pair with Louis Delmas. It would be a nice addition to Detroit's defense. However, there is a big asterisk with Landry's injury history.
Troubled by an Achillies tendon injury, Landry played in just eight games in 2011. He played in just nine games the year before that. Washington's doctors wanted him to have surgery but he refused.
Landry could be in for a sizable contract given the demand for safeties and a thin market.
