Landon Collins reportedly signing huge deal with Washington

Landon Collins reportedly signing huge deal with Washington

Collins' record-setting contract with the Washington Redskins thrusts him ahead of Eric Berry with six years and a total value of $84 million. They know what they're signing him to do. 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.

Collins became a free agent after the New York Giants decided not to franchise tag the 25-year-old for the upcoming season.

He underwent surgery late previous year and is expected to be cleared for football drills this offseason. 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).

As for where Collins will end up for the 2019 season, whether it's the Giants or a different team, here are 15 bold predictions to consider for the free agency, including where the safety could wind up.

Storm Gareth to bring strong winds and rain
Cloud will increase from the south-west later today with rain arriving in parts of Munster and south Connacht towards evening. It's likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities are affected by spray and/or large waves.

Collins, a three-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro in 2016, will get $45 million guaranteed that will be paid out over the first three years of the deal.

Collins' deal should be good news for Earl Thomas, Adrian Amos and Tyrann Mathieu, the other top safeties on the market, who each are more valuable in pass coverage than Collins.

Prior to being selected by the Giants in the the 2015 NFL Draft, he had expressed a desire to play for the Redskins and wears No. 21 in honor of Sean Taylor.
