“One name to watch in New England: Jamie Collins. The ex-Browns linebacker has lost weight, and his play speed has caught the attention of the staff in the spring. And the interesting thing with him is that, when the Patriots traded him to Cleveland in October 2016, there was the feeling that he was too caught up in his contract situation. At that point, he’d made about $3 million as a pro football player. Over the last two years alone, he made $27 million. So that’s less of a concern now.”
It seems as though things are going in the right direction for Collins and the Patriots, and we’re sure to hear more about him when training came comes up at the end of this month.
