For the first time during the free agency period that started on Tuesday we have a report of a Redskins free agent making a visit to another team.
Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald is reporting that LaRon Landry will take a trip to see Bill Belichick and company in New England this weekend.
Landry has been a starter for the Redskins since they drafted him in the first round out of LSU in 2007. But injuries have hampered him the last two seasons and it appears that a dispute over the best course of treatment for his Achilles injury will cause the Redskins to move on from him.
In analyzing Landry’s potential with the Patriots, Rapoport writes:
I’m told he’s healthy now. If the Patriots are looking for an in-the-box safety, this would be the guy. Still not quite sure about the fit alongside Patrick Chung, and it seems a stellar coverage player might be a better call. Perhaps a converted corner.
I wouldn’t be so sure that Landry is healthy. From what I have heard he can pass a physical but the Redskins are very doubtful about his Achilles being able to withstand the rigors of an NFL season without giving out again.
