Landon Collins' Redskins deal is a nightmare for Giants

Adjust Comment Print

With just $17 million in cap space on paper, the Redskins signed former Giants All-Pro safety Landon Collins to a six-year deal worth $84 million.

Many were hoping the Colts would be able to bring Collins in given their massive need at safety, but with the reported six-year, $84 million deal he is expected to sign, it makes plenty of sense why he isn't going to the Colts.

The Redskins are the only National Football League team at the moment with multiple DBs with at least $40 million guaranteed in their current deals.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu to leave Texans, join Chiefs
Jackson, a fan favorite and highly respected inside the Texans' locker room, reportedly received a three-year, $33 million deal. This is a developing story, watch FOX4 for the latest developments about Mathieu and all Chiefs moves during free agency.

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.

Collins, who turned 25 in January, was a playmaker for the New York Giants' defense in 2018, leading the team with 96 tackles - the first time in his career that he didn't top 100 - despite missing the final four games of the season with a torn labrum. The Redskins then signed him to a $75 million, five-year contract. 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 2015 second-rounder has been named to the Pro Bowl the past three seasons and finished previous year with 96 tackles in 12 games.

By comparison, Mathieu, a Pro Bowler and a first-team All-Pro selection from 2015, produced 89 combined tackles, 3.0 sacks, two interceptions, eight pass deflections, and a forced fumble through 16 starts.
