Dawan Landry signs restricted free agent tender

The Baltimore Ravens announced Tuesday that strong safety Dawan Landry has signed his one-year, restricted free agent tender.

Landry is a rising fifth-year player and received a second-round tender, so his salary is slated to be $1.759 million in 2010.
Everybody wants to do a long-term deal, but it probably won’t happen,” admitted Landry, the older brother of the Redskins’ LaRon.
After a lost 2008 season due to a neck injury, the Ravens’ Landry returned last season to pick off four passes, including a 48-yard pick six.  He also posted a career-high 89 tackles, starting all 16 games.  Entering a contract year, however, Landry doesn’t have a whole lot of leverage in his bid for a long-term extension.  Current No. 3 safety Tom Zbikowski showed promise while filling in for injured free safety Ed Reed last year.
Fullback Le’Ron McClain, who is publicly campaigning for an increased ball carrying role, is Baltimore’s lone restricted free agent yet to sign.

  1. I think I’ve just decided to name my next baby “Dawan”–and it don’t make no nevermind to me if it be a boy or girl.
    Yup, I roll like dat.

  2. glad landry signed le’ron will sign before june 15th the campaign for increased carries is a joke between him and ray rice. I know he wants more carries but it is difficult in stealing them away from a pro bowl running back.

  3. Le’Ron, LaRon, and Dawan were merrily tripping along. But Zbikowksi added a discordant note.

    robert ethan, I read this site strictly for the comments and you didn’t disappoint! Very funny sir…

  5. He is a nice safety. Coverage skills aren’t great, but aren’t bad. Was a big hitter before he hurt his neck. Started to get that back at the end of the season last year. If he can return to his rookie form, it will seriously improve our secondary which is the weakspot on the team.
