Veteran Starter w/Big Long Term Deal
Interesting situation there... while Collins may be great in this league, it's odd to declare that a rookie is already the "starting Mike LB" before he's even been to a rookie mini-camp. I certainly wouldn't be handing him the job if it means driving out a veteran starter who's only making $2m this year. I let the vet know it's his job to start, and find ways to use both of them. But I'll admit I don't know enough about either player specifically, so perhaps they're working off information I'm not seeing. Either way it's a stark contrast to what's been spoken about here regarding Newton and Jones.
