NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline passes along "word" from the final few days of the Combine that free agent SS LaRon Landry is unlikely to receive the contract he's currently seeking.
Landry is reportedly seeking roughly $6 million per year, but people inside the league believe he may wind up settling for $3-4 million annually. NFL teams aren't quite flush with cap space this offseason, and Landry has never been an elite cover safety. We still don't envision the Jets being able to afford Landry.
ESPN New York reports a deal between the Jets and free agent QB David Garrard is not imminent.
If the two sides strike an agreement it won't be for "at least another week." Garrard reportedly has other options out there, but New York is easily his best chance at a starting job. It's fully expected that he'll end up signing and competing with Mark Sanchez and another quarterback for the starting job.
Free agent CB William Gay will visit the Steelers this week.
Gay, 28, spent the first five seasons of his career in Pittsburgh before signing a two-year deal with Arizona last offseason. He was just released on Friday, and according to his agent, there has been "a lot of interest" in Gay since then. He should be rather inexpensive.
Profootballtalk.com's Mike Florio says there is "persistent buzz" that the Texans will use the franchise tag on SS Glover Quin.
Re-signing Quin has already been deemed Houston's top priority, but there hasn't been a ton of talk about how they'll go about doing it. We haven't heard any updates on how/if long-term talks are going. The franchise tag for Quin carries a $6.916 million price. Houston has until 4PM ET on Monday to make a decision.
Looks like Glover Quin is coming off of the ES FA Big Board.
