Todd Collins Re-Ups

Collins will be here next year to back up Campbell, at the very least.

Re: Todd Collins Re-Ups

I think TC could be a great match for this offense. He does lack mobility which will hurt but he is super accurate and is a smart player who can pick the offense up and understand how to execute it. As a backup he can be valuable. His mobility can be offset with more 3 step drops which are a staple in some forms of the offense. This is a good move to me. Seems like a liked guy so it is good for the locker room.

Anyone else stoked that our priority FA siging was Todd Collins? Way to show some level headedness and restraint.

Re: Todd Collins Re-Ups

I like that we're focusing on our own guys first and taking a wait and see approach to the FA market.

I hate to say I called this, but I kinda did say that I thought there was a good chance TC would be back. WHERE'S MY CREDIT?!

Re: Todd Collins Re-Ups

This is great news. And Todd is here because while Jason will be given every chance to show he can lead, there will be a point in which if we just aren't succeeding with him, Todd will take over.

That will be good for Jason. He'll have a great teacher in Coach Zorn, and time to learn the offense without worrying about looking over his shoulder if he makes a mistake. However, if he is chronically mediocre, then eventually, a change will be made. So he will have pressure, just not immediate pressure. It will keep him focused.

It wouldn't be good to have everything riding on Jason's development, and him staying healthy. Todd is an outstanding player and gives us a great insurance policy, and he will be able to assist in coaching Jason as well.

Is it just me or isn't that a bit much for a backup QB who is as old as dirt?

I think that's a pretty fair deal for a #2 these days.

Plus the market is just crazy. Some DT in Oakland who I've never heard of got $18 million in guarantees ... Andre Davis got $8 million in guarantees ... and we won't have Brunell's big contract and will likely go after a low-priced #3 QB so it will work out numbers wise. Good news I think, to have TC back. Glad they got this done.

Yeah the FA market looks like it's going to pick up where it left off last year with marginal guys getting mega deals and stars getting insane mega deals. Sounds like there may have been a bit of a bidding war for Collins, I like that we got this done quickly. He was definitely a top priority. Nice to see us paying our own guys for once.
