INDIANAPOLIS – The safety position has just risen on the offseason priority list for the Colts.
On Wednesday, the Colts released LaRon Landry after two seasons in Indianapolis.
In two seasons with the Colts, Landry played in 23 games (18 starts) with 123 tackles and 2.5 sacks.
Landry was suspended for four games during the 2014 season (Weeks 5-8) and did not receive his starting spot back until Week 16.
The Colts now head into the offseason without Landry and have starters Mike Adams and Sergio Brown entering free agency. Those three combined for all the starts at safety last season.
Also, on Wednesday, the Colts waived offensive tackle Xavier Nixon and inside linebacker Andrew Jackson.
Nixon, who has made a pair of starts in his two seasons with the Colts, missed the team plane prior to the AFC Championship game.
Jackson, a sixth-round pick in 2014, was used primarily on special teams last season. He was arrested earlier this offseason on DUI charges.
