$14M/yr for Collins

 

Verdict? Smart spend or overpay?

84 mil.  That's a lot of money.  I think it is overpay, but it definitely plugs a hole.  

 

I can't help but think part of the reason they went after Collins is to kill the noise following the knee jerk release of dj. They are obviously very aware of fan unrest, and since Collins is an upgrade over dj, they have successfully killed that noise.  

 

Also, takes a player away from a rival.  And i love the Alabama connection.

 

But like I've said, all these contracts this week will not be good value.  Time will tell.

Why would you give 14mill per year to Collins? I mean that is stupid as stupid gets. Always chasing other teams trash. 

I wouldn't say he is trash, but I do agree he is not worth that money.

The Redskins will be signing safety Landon Collins, who told ESPN's Josina Anderson the news. He'll receive a deal worth up to $84 million for six years, per multiple reports. That's serious money and partly a function of their inability to draft and develop anyone at this position for most of the last decade. Collins for their inability to draft/develop others there in past. But he gives them one of the best in-the-box safeties in the NFL and also someone who can help improve the culture and leadership on Washington's defense. That was sorely needed. He also grew up a big fan of late Redskins safety Sean Taylor and wore his number 21 with the New York Giants.

Not much of that has anything to do with becoming a contending tackle football team.

Seems like we paid a premium but given need and intangibles (leadership, passion for franchise, Bama Boys chemistry) I'm okay with it.

I'll bet Landon Collins salary we use him all wrong.

I've got the same feeling. We've gone through so many safeties that were supposed to "finally fix" our safety position... Atogwe, the three headed monster of Madieu, Meriweather, and Tanard Jackson, Ryan Clark 2.0, Dashon Goldson, HaHa... Swearinger was our closest to fixing it, I just have no faith that this time will be different.

I was surprised Landon Collins wasn't a splash article on the front.   It's a big signing and signals something few expected.   Watch for more coming.   At least two more pretty substantial moves.

I'm sure our super inventive genius defensive coaching staff will figure out how to hide his one dimensional play.

Let the professionals worry about the money aspect of it. 

 

Extend that logic on & you have no worries but family. Very moving, though a killer for forums.

Hmmm... does one rhyme with Beveon Lell?

Maybe they keep Ha Ha or go for a fast Safety like Savage in the draft to go with big LC..  Though Ha Ha was pretty mediocre.
