Landon Collins Will Sign 6-Year, $84 Million Deal With Redskins

Landon Collins Will Sign 6-Year, $84 Million Deal With Redskins”

The Indianapolis Colts were linked as a potential suitor for free agent safety Landon Collins, but he will reportedly be signing with the Washington Redskins on a massive deal.

Even with the most salary cap space in the National Football League and a need at his position, bringing in Collins on a six-year deal at $14 million annually would have spelled major problems down the road. The Giants decided not to use their franchise tag on Collins this year, which some view as a mistake, allowing him to become a free agent. While the contract is a big one, which was tough to predict with the Redskins salary cap situation, Collins will bring plenty to the Redskins secondary at strong safety, while at the same time weakening a divisional rival as the Giants lose one of their better defenders.

Collins recorded at least 96 tackles in each of his four seasons, including a career-high 125 along wth 13 passes defended and four sacks during a breakout 2016 when he was named All-Pro.

"I feel like that's the armor", Collins said in a 2015 ESPN interview. He wore No. 26 at Alabama and No. 21 with the Giants as tributes to Taylor (who wore 26 at Miami (FL) and 21 with the Redskins). But the fact remains that the team will have options with Collins and don't appear to be hamstrung for more than half a decade by this deal. Collins cried when he learned of Taylor's shooting in 2007.

Forty-five million dollars of that will be guaranteed and paid out over the first three years. Thomas missed the majority of the 2018 season with a broken bone in his left leg, which could turn teams away from signing a big contract.

Ramsey is entering the fourth year of his rookie deal that will pay him $3.6 million in 2019.

Norman took to twitter to take a shot at the Giants and General Manager Dave Gettleman on Monday.
