The Patriots have been relatively quiet in free agency, but they have a couple of visits lined up.
We noted this week that the Patriots are one of four suitors for safety LaRon Landry, and today Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that the Patriots are planning to bring him to Foxboro on Friday night for a weekend visit.
And receiver Anthony Gonzalez, a free agent whom the Colts are not interested in re-signing, is also expected to make the trip to New England on Friday.
If he can stay healthy, Landry would be a starter for the Patriots and a good upgrade to their secondary. Gonzalez is a bigger question mark because his inability to stay healthy has been a bigger problem. Gonzalez showed some promise in his first two seasons after the Colts took him in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft, but he’s done almost nothing since then: Injuries have limited Gonzalez to just 11 games over the last three seasons, and he’s caught just five passes since the start of the 2009 season.
