Lions free agency: LaRon Landry, Dashon Goldson off the market

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions had been connected to safeties LaRon Landry and Dashon Goldson, but both have signed with other teams.

Before the Detroit Lions signed safety Glover Quin, they were connected to both LaRon Landry and Dashon Goldson. Actually, Landry was scheduled to visit the Lions, and Detroit was reportedly among the favorites to land Goldson. In the end, neither safety ended up signing with the Lions.

Landry signed a four-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday night. The Colts were the first and only team Landry visited, so much like last year, he didn't stay unsigned long enough to visit the Lions. Considering he ended up getting a deal worth $6 million per season, he likely wouldn't have ended up joining the Lions even if he had visited them.

Goldson ended up being in a similar situation in that the Lions likely weren't going to pay what he was after, as he signed a five-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth $41.25 million. As speculated when the Lions were first connected to Goldson, he was simply out of their price range.

If the Lions do look to add another safety to go along with Quin, there's a chance they may simply re-sign Louis Delmas, who apparently still has them in the mix.
