He can also bring giving up huge plays in big moments (SB49, 2015 AFCCG)The game boils down to a few plays in big games.
A stop on a crucial 3rd down can be the turning point in a big game. A sack or strip fumble. Impact plays.
Can Collins bring that? Yes he can.
Agreed, I can remember at least 2 huge plays in sb49 that he gave up, the russell wilson long scramble and gets out of bounds right before half, and then the big pass to lynch on Seattle’s last drive. Aside from kyle arrington he might have been our biggest detriment that game.He can also bring giving up huge plays in big moments (SB49, 2015 AFCCG)
Talent-wise, he’d be a big upgrade - flaws and all. The Pats LB corps is so bad that even a guy like Collins, gifted but prone to errors, would be a significant improvement
That said, it doesn’t make sense financially so I suspect this is just BS
