LaRon Landry To Visit Patriots This Weekend, According To Report

In the first few days of free agency, safety was a position of interest for the Detroit Lions. On Thursday, they agreed to a deal with safety Erik Coleman, who is set to return to the Lions after spending the 2011 season with the team (albeit on the sideline for most of the year because of an injury). Also on Thursday, the Lions scheduled a visit with safety Oshiomogho Atogwe. The visit is expected to take place sometime next week.

On day one of free agency, the Lions were linked to safety LaRon Landry. Four teams were reported to be interested in Landry: the New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears and Lions. A fifth team, the New England Patriots, has since joined the list of interested teams, and Landry is actually planning to visit them this weekend. From the Boston Herald:

According to a source with knowledge of Landry’s plans, the Patriots are expecting a visit from Landry this weekend. He figures to arrive in Foxboro on Friday night, I’m told.

Right now it's not clear if this is the only visit Landry has scheduled. Chances are if he had one set up with the Lions we would have heard about it, so we may just have to see if he leaves New England without a deal before this story goes any further.
