LaRon Landry suspended 10 games for PED violation

LaRon Landry's upcoming season is essentially over before it began.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the free-agent safety has been suspended without pay for the first 10 games of the 2015 campaign for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, according to an NFL spokesperson.

Landry, 30, was released last month by the Colts after a season that saw him start six games and finish as the league's 39th-ranked performer out of 87 players at his position, per Pro Football Focus.

The notoriously hard-hitting defender also served a four-game suspension last season due to another PED violation. The No. 6 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft was bound to attract attention on the safety-depleted open market, but not anymore.

Landry was already a questionable defender in coverage last season and hardly an ace against the run. It's fair to wonder if his career might be over after another lengthy league-imposed ban.
