With Fred Davis tagged, LaRon Landry likely will leave

The Redskins have decided to use the franchise tag on tight end Fred Davis.  And since there’s only one tag to be used, it means that every other unrestricted free agent on the team will be able to hit the open market.

One of those unrestricted free agents is safety LaRon Landry, the sixth overall pick in the 2007 draft.

Per a league source, Landry is currently expected to hit the open market, and to leave the Redskins.

The Redskins retain until March 13 at 4:00 p.m. ET the exclusive (eye roll) negotiating rights to Landry.  Thereafter, he’ll be free to sign with a new team.

    Maybe he comes back, but no way you can franchise a guy that fragile that also refuses surgery on an injury that has plagued him for 2 years. Good luck LaRon if you don’t come back to DC.

    I’m okay with this.

    LL plays like a beast when he’s healthy, but until he gets the Achilles fixed the right way he may find the market thinner than he hopes. It’s too bad. I hope the “natural” strategy works for him but I kinda doubt it will.

    landry’s a loss, but as long as sean taylor doesn’t hit the open market i think the skins will be fine.

    Now they can get a safety that wraps up the ball carrier instead of just shouldering the guy so he bounces off……..and doesn’t have to flex for the camera after a tackle on a 3rd and 3 where he caught the guy after 4 yards……..sorry, I’m the biggest Redskins homer out there, but he hasn’t lived up to his hype. Better than Doughty (when he plays), but I wouldn’t break the bank to keep him.

    It should be interesting to see how much interest he gets because of his Achilles still not be healed.

    Oh no, PFT: your man-crush on L² may have to move elsewhere. What a pity… dude thinks he’s a stallion… nobody else (except PFT) does.

    Looks like Incredible Hulk, plays like Paris Hilton
