Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the San Francisco 49ers are one of three teams interested in New York Jets free agent safety LaRon Landry. The other teams include the Arizona Cardinals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Landry, who is 28 years old, was drafted in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, where he spend five seasons. Last season, he was with the New York Jets, where he recorded 100 tackles, 2 interceptions and a touchdown.

They are already rumored to be interested in Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed and Miami Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith.

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX).

"Yeah, I think it was Tuesday we did the throwing session, tested it out, turned it into a game-like scenario," Garoppolo explained.
