LaRon Landry signs with ColtsThe Indianapolis Colts today signed unrestricted free agent safety LaRon Landry.

“We’re ecstatic about this signing,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “We feel LaRon is an absolute game changer and a true impact player. We’re talking about a 220-pound safety that runs 4.3 and plays to that speed. His approach to the game and his style of play are lights out and embody the culture we’re building on the defense and this team in general.”

Landry, 6-0, 220 pounds, started 79-of-80 games played with the Washington Redskins (2007-2011) and New York Jets (2012) and holds career totals of 534 tackles (395 solo), 39 passes defensed, six interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 10 forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks and five fumble recoveries.

Last season with the Jets, Landry earned a Pro Bowl selection after posting career highs in tackles (113) and forced fumbles (four), while tying his personal best for interceptions (two). In Week 7 at New England, he posted the second-highest tackle total of his career when he made 17 stops (14 solo) to go along with one pass defensed.

In 2010, Landry logged 101 tackles (73 solo) in nine starts to go along with 11 passes defensed, one interception, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and 1.0 sack.

In 2007, Landry became the first Redskins rookie since 2001 to start every game of the season. He was named to the NFL All-Rookie Defensive Team after finishing third on the Redskins with 97 tackles (62 solo) and 11 special teams stops. In Washington’s NFC Wild Card playoff game at Seattle, he recorded the first two interceptions of his career when he picked off quarterback Matt Hasselbeck twice in the fourth quarter.

    LOVE this pick, our secondary went from a liability to a strength with this pick and Greg Toler earlier. Just need a suitable replacement for D.Free and the monster will be built and ready to take back the AFC South!

    Landry is a beast. That is the guy I was hoping the colts would get. I think we will see a big improvement in colts defense!

    This one one of the best things we could do. Our secondary is solid now. Actually, it’s probably in the top 5. I wish they’d think about picking up Vollmer or Woodhead. Both of those guys would make a huge difference. Other than that, I’m pleased. Wonder what they will get 1st round in the draft. Maybe Xavier Rhodes, or they’ll go WR possibly. Hmmm. . .
