New York Giants safety Landon Collins, who is in the final year of his four-year rookie deal, is in line for a hefty extension that could earn him around $12 million total. The first pick of the second round in 2015 is due to make $1.2 million in 2018. Things are difficult for the Giants, as they are facing extensions with both Collins and high-profile wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. at the same time. The Giants have the option to place the franchise tag on Collins, but they'll likely save that for OBJ if needed. Collins is one of the better young safeties in the NFL, as he's recorded 100-plus tackles in each of his three seasons, including a career-high five interceptions in 2016. He's a top-level safety in IDP leagues.
New York Giants defensive back Landon Collins (forearm) is taking part in individual drills at organized team activities on Tuesday. Collins is being eased back into workouts after having a second surgery on his forearm in April, but he should be ready to go in training camp, barring any setbacks. Having Collins healthy in the secondary all year would be a huge boost to the Giants in 2018.
New York Giants strong safety Landon Collins (forearm) is still recovering from a second surgery on his fractured forearm and didn't take part in organized team activities, but he was able to run and is expected to be cleared in a few weeks. He said that he would like to take part in minicamp in mid-June, but it will come down to the decisions of the coaching staff and medical team. The 24-year-old had 104 tackles and two interceptions last season but fell out of favor with the old coaching staff. He should be fully healthy entering training camp, barring a setback, and is a tremendous asset to New York's secondary when he's healthy.
