Pats show interest in two safeties; Green-Ellis to visit Bengals

So for those of you who have been waiting to see what New England would do in free agency, we have a little bit of movement to report:

First, safety Steve Gregory will arrive in Foxborough late tonight for a visit with the Patriots, a league source confirms.

Gregory, a sixth-year player who has played his entire career with the Chargers, is listed at 5-11, 195 pounds. He played in 15 games (13 starts) last season, with 67 tackles, 3 pass breakups, and an interception in Week 14 against Buffalo, which he returned for a touchdown.

In 2010, he was suspended four games for violation of the NFL performance-enhancing substance policy.

Gregory was undrafted out of Syracuse in 2006.

Also, the Pats have called about Redskins’ safety LaRon Landry, a hard-hitter – when he’s healthy. Landry, the sixth overall pick out of LSU in 2007, has played in just 15 games over the last two seasons.

However, several teams have inquired about Landry.

As for Patriots players, running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis will visit with the Bengals. Reports are that Oakland’s Michael Bush will also meet with Cincinnati.
