    ...and then there are the plays he is not.

    His talent is not the question here.

    If the pats are comfortable bringing him back then I’m all for it. His athleticism is something the pats could use at LB.

    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.

    I'm torn on this one, but nothing significant that's for sure.

    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.

    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.

    Landon Collins would be a good acquisition. Jamie? Not so much.

    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?

    This sounds like a rumor someone pulled out of their backside.

    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.

    WR1 Gordon
    WR2 Edelman
    WR3 Hogan
    WR4 Dorsett
    WR5 Patterson

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

    The Browns have fired Jackson, I wonder if a house cleaning comes next?

    You are making out that game as a reflection of Collins entire tenure here which isn't accurate.

    He was a pretty good player while here.
