Jaguars reach agreement with Ravens S Dawan Landry
Friday, July 29, 2011
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars and safety Dawan Landry have agreed on a five-year contract, giving the franchise a third new defensive starter in as many days.
Landry, who spent the last five years in Baltimore, is expected to sign a contract Saturday and would be eligible to practice when the new collective bargaining agreement is ratified.
The Jaguars also acquired linebackers Paul Posluszny and Clint Session in free agency. The trio should help bolster a defense that ranked near the bottom of the league in every category last season and gave up a franchise record 419 points.
Landry accumulated 362 tackles, nine interceptions and five sacks with the Ravens. He missed most of the 2008 season with a neck injury.
He likely will replace Don Carey in the starting lineup.
