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.
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.
