Collins to Redskins for 6 years, $84M

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.

When the transaction goes official Wednesday after the market opens, everything changes for the Redskins. The deal is worth an average of $14 million a season.

Collins' deal, as well as Eric Reid's three-year, $22 million contract last month with the Carolina Panthers makes it seem like the market for safeties is heating back up after being down last year. Collins models his game after Taylor, the hard-hitting safety who died after being shot at his home in Florida in 2007.

Collins was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2016 and he's been picked for the Pro Bowl in each of the last three seasons. The team acquired safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from Green Bay at the 2018 trade deadline, but he is set to be a free agent.

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

Collins established himself as one of the hardest-hitting safeties in the league and was a tackling machine during his four years in the Big Apple.

In 59 career games, the Alabama product has 428 tackles and eight interceptions. The Redskins then signed him to a $75 million, five-year contract.

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

The irony is that Norman is among the players who could be released to save salary-cap space.
