Lions interested in LaRon Landry, according to report

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Just like last year, the Detroit Lions reportedly have interest in signing free-agent safety LaRon Landry.

At this time a year ago, the Detroit Lions set their sights on upgrading their secondary with safety LaRon Landry. They were planning to host Landry for a visit in an effort to sign him, but he never made it, instead deciding to sign with the New York Jets. That decision worked out quite well for Landry, who racked up 100 tackles, 8 pass defenses, 2 interceptions and 4 forced fumbles en route to making the Pro Bowl.

This year, Landry is once again on the open market, and the Lions once again have interest in signing him, according to the Free Press' Dave Birkett. It's unclear if it's gotten to the point where they have scheduled a visit with Landry, but he is already set to meet with the Indianapolis Colts.

My guess is that the Lions would only make an attempt to sign Landry if they are unable to land safety Glover Quin, who is set to visit Detroit. The best-case scenario would obviously be for the Lions to sign both of them, but with Landry reportedly seeking around $6 million a season, that's unlikely.
