Rotational Player and Threatening Starter's Job
Never thought I’d see Patrick Chung back in a Pats uniform. But here he is having another successful season after not being resigned years ago.

Guess it’s kind of smart to always leave your bridges open because you never know what lies in your future and beyond.

We’ll see what Bill does?
Huh? He's been here for like, forever.

It seemed like BB just booted him out the door.

I can't remember feeling that with any other player who didn't have an off field issue.

In the Starting Line-Up
idk...rivers had a good angle on Collins..it's not like he overpowered him.
Bottom line. If BB wants JC, there's probably a good reason for it.
Man that clip was prime Collins freelancing. His job was to contain. If he contains there are two guys to stop the ball carrier short of the first down. But he ducks inside, gets blocked by Rivers, and the guy gets the first down.

Cutting bad effort plays by Collins seems to have become a cottage industry in Cleveland.

I've seen way too many embarrassing plays from him posted here (via twitter).

So no thanks.

Hopefully Belichick has seen them too.

Belichick doesn't like players who take missteps ... Collins takes many of them them.
Along with taking plays off ... earns him the distinction of he's a sled.

Despite being a freak athlete, he plays older than Hightower who has gone through numerous injuries. I'm gonna say no to Collins, he looks arguably worse than Elandon Roberts.

BB got rid of him mid season for a reason. That reason hasn't suddenly changed 3 years later...

Agreed Joker.
JC had the tools and with the elevated discipline mantra under BB, I suspect JC was able to excel on a more frequent basis. Without it JC had his highlight rell moments but I'd bet even more frequently now showed himself to be a liability.

BB is also all about 'I need you to do A. If you keep trying to do B then I'll C you off to another team'. I'm guessing that's the underlying reason for the departure of JC. And unless his release from the Browns brought about that come to jesus/cathartic moment (buying into 'I need to focus completely on doing A' required by BB), the possibility of his return would seem DOA.
