LaRon Landry..

This free agent strong safety is one of the more dynamic players on the Redskins defense and in the entire league. Wouldn't you love to watch the Falcons' defense with this guy on the field? Landry is 27 years old and would instantly bring that intimidation factor to our defense. The Falcons' defense is not feared by anyone really. We all want a defense that instills fear in our opponents. Landry is a 6 foot 220 pound safety that is built like a brick house and hits like a Mack truck. We currently have a safety like that in William Moore but not in Thomas DeCoud. If your reading this and wondering why this player isn't being pursued by every team in the NFL or wondering why the Redskins would even let him go is because of his injury problems over the past 2 years. The last 2 seasons Landry has ended the year on injured reserve with problems with his Achilles tendon. Landry's only other weakness is that he struggles in the deep passing game. He is consistent though. When Landry is on the field he makes plays with his physicality and toughness. In 2010 and 2011 Landry played 17 games. He had a total of 133 tackles, 9 pass deflections, 1 interception, and 2 forced fumble. DeCoud in 2010 and 2011 played all 32 games. He had 10 less tackles, just 1 more pass deflection, 4 more interceptions and 2 forced fumbles. In my opinion, Landry outplayed Decoud in almost half the games. I think if we lost DeCoud to free agency Landry could be a good pick up. Landry should be looking for a 1 year deal. It might be a risk or a bad investment but it should be worth it if he stays healthy. We could convert either Moore or Landry to FS considering in Mike Nolans defense's he has a bigger FS than usual. Moore and Landry sound like a nice tandem to me. If we do run a hybrid 4-3/3-4 or when we eventually convert to a 3-4, Landry would have already been ready considering he has played in one in Washington. Landry is a top safety in this league when he actually suits up to play on Sundays. It would kill me to see him successful anywhere but Atlanta.
