This basically confirms what I have been saying in this thread about the signing of collins destroying the redskins leverage in a Ramsey trade. I don't see why they couldn't have made a verbal deal with Collins and not announced anything until they had traded Ramsey. This is not that big a deal...but it did cost them a late round draft pick.
They probably went ahead and announced it because the Ramsey trade was already going nowhere, and they didn't want to risk losing Collins to someone else.

The Jets were already offering only a 6th or 7th rounder prior to Collins being signed.

Once a deal is sent through to the league office I don't think the Skins have any control over it being announced.
