The Colts have inked a four-year contract with Pro-Bowl Safety LaRon Landry (6-0, 220 pounds, 28 years old). The New York Jets had wanted to retain the 28-year-old tackle machine but couldn’t find a way to fit him under the salary cap. Landry’s deal is worth a reported $24 million with $14 million guaranteed according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora), who reported the deal on Twitter around 11:30 Wednesday night. Mr. Grigson, it appears, has been working late.
With Landry, Indianapolis has vastly upgraded the safety position without breaking the bank. Landry has made a name for himself as both a solid tackler and a punishing hitter. He is at his best against the run but can get out and cover well for such a big guy.no comments
