I'll go on record as against it. The defense needs something for sure, but I don't think the answer is a physically gifted player that you don't know if you can trust. Who knows, maybe he's learned to value coaching more now that he's seen Cleveland, but for the pick/dollar price, I'm not sure it's a wise gamble.

My guess is a late pick and it’s 2 mil since they’re not going to be paying the remaining 2 years. My gut tells me Collins will be playing for his next (and possible final) contract.

It's pretty obvious. Collins can cover as he has shown us in the past. A physically athletic LB with coverage ability is something we badly need.
The guy couldn’t cover the corpse of Owen Daniels three years ago.

Forgive me if I’m not jumping for joy at the thought of him covering a fast talented player in 2018 after coming off an MCL tear.

I shudder to think of how miserably the current crop of LB's would have fared with the corpse of Owen Daniels.

I understand the bad taste Collins left at the end here but one thing he has as a possible acquisition the others don’t is familiarity in this complex defense.

Weren't you calling for Dez Bryant a couple months ago?
And? What’s your point? I still want Dez Bryant.

I’ll take Dez Bryant for the league minimum as a 4th WR over stone hands Thomas who costs a draft pick and a high salary any day of the week.

Explain to me how wanting Dez for peanuts is equal to not wanting to trade a draft pick for free lancing Collins and his bloated contract?

No need to get all defensive about it. I was just curious why you'd be willing to take a flyer on Dez but are critical of those who would take a flyer on Collins.

Where would Dez fit in? Nowhere, to be honest, considering his rumored low intellect, the complexity of this offense, and his diminished skills.
