2013 NFL free agency: Dawan Landry visits New York Jets

If signed by the Jets, Landry would be slated to step into the void left by his brother's departure in free agency.


Former-Jaguars safety spent Wednesday visiting the New York Jets, according to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Landry, 30, was released by the Jaguars along with cornerback Aaron Ross on March 8 in a pair of roster moves that cleared over $6 million in cap space for the team. However, Landry now accounts for $3.9 million in dead space for the Jaguars, according to Spotrac.

If signed by the Jets, Landry would replace his younger brother, LaRon Landry, on the team's roster, after the younger of the two brothers left the Jets to sign a four-year, $24 million contract with the Indianapolis Colts.

In two seasons at strong safety for the Jaguars, Landry started in all 32 games, tallying three interceptions and 196 tackles. As a player that was released rather than allowed to walk into free agency with an expired contract, Landry's performance during the 2013 season wouldn't influence potential compensatory selections for the Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft.
