Colts cut LaRon Landry

The Indianapolis Colts cut safety LaRon Landry along with offensive tackle Xavier Nixon and inside linebacker Andrew Jackson

Landry had a disappointing tenure with the Colt since signing a four-year, $24 million contract that included $14 million guaranteed in 2013. That included a four-game suspension for performance-enhancing drug usage.

Landry started 18 games over the past two seasons and had 144 tackles, 2.5 sacks and no interceptions.

Landry has 677 career tackles, 10 forced fumbles, eight sacks, six interceptions and five fumble recoveries.

Jackson is a former sixth-round pick who had seven tackles and a sack last season. Jackson had a driving under the influence conviction in January.

Nixon was signed off the Washington Redskins' practice squad two years ago. He played in eight games with two starts over the past two seasons. He spent part of last season on injured reserve-designated to return.

Nixon missed the team flight for the AFC championship game.
