Landon Collins to join Washington with 6-year, $84 million deal

Landon Collins to join Washington with 6-year, $84 million deal

The Giants decided not to give Collins the franchise tag, and it ended up working out well for the 25-year-old.

Of the $84 million, $45 million is guaranteed and paid out over the first three years of the deal, adds Rapoport.

The Colts have a massive need at safety, and Collins would have been a great fit, but it wouldn't have been worth it to sign him to a deal that big. Even with his skills on the field, and history with new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, the Chiefs are smart to not pay Collins that deal. The draft is now a bit more open too, as the Redskins addressed one of their biggest problem areas with Collins, arguably the best safety on the free-agent market this year. The Pro Bowl starter also had five tackles for a loss, two quarterback hits, four passes defended and a forced fumble. They finished 24th in the National Football League in defense (371.4 yards per game) and allowed the most points in the NFC East (25.8 per game).

Collins, who is a natural strong safety, had been hopeful for a significant payday, looking to receive top safety money.

I purposely called Apple CEO Tim Cook 'Tim Apple'
President Trump sought to set the record straight on his latest gaffe, where he referred to Apple CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple ". But now Trump is arguing that the whole incident is " fake news ", according to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan .

Collins was a starter all four years he played in NY and was named an All-Pro after his breakout sophomore season in 2016.

The Giants will now have to play against the three-time Pro Bowler twice a year moving forward, which is a double loss for NY, who now has another gaping hole on a defense devoid of big-time play-makers.

In 59 career games with the Giants, Collins had eight interceptions but none last season.
