Team needed a Safety for sure , def overpaid Collins IMO but it's bound to happen in today's league.

Expensive. Dan and Bruce are ready to spend some money to inject some passion back into the fan base. Nothing says #HTTR like a compromised salary cap.

But I do love the player. Will be fun rooting for some serious hitting again.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

Source says the the 3y/$45m number that @RapSheet reported isn't fully guaranteed.

Still working on all the details, but this deal is going to be a lot more practical than the eye-popping 6y/$84m that first crossed all our twitter feeds.

Landon Collins' 149 defensive stops are 13 more than the next closest safety since 2015.

Some additional details:

Craig Hoffman
@CraigHoffman

Source says the the 3y/$45m number that
@RapSheet
reported isn't fully guaranteed.

Still working on all the details, but this deal is going to be a lot more practical than the eye-popping 6y/$84m that first crossed all our twitter feeds.

As Andrew Brandt says, agents are going to push for outlets to report the flashy total contract money, which means nothing.

Splash signings are a must not only to put butts back in the seats but to also win games. Bruce/Jay on borrowed time. They know they need to win yesterday.

Draft Deionte Thompson. Bama walls up front and in the back.

Scared money don't make no money.

We need a bonafide starter at safety. He is one. Sometimes you gotta pony up. And he is another legitimate leader in the locker room.

And obviously the frugal approach hasn't worked before. I'm fine with this signing.

Since people don't remember the Vinny years, under him we would have paid Earl Thomas $85 mil guaranteed.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

Maybe would've preferred Mathieu but this was definitely the position I wanted a splashy signing.
Don't see where we're going to use the cap we're going to create (ZB, VD, MF, McGee, Scherff) better than here.

I'll hold off on judging the money until all the details are known.

Yeah that whole narrative gets tossed around way too much. What's the statute of limitations on that? Can't avoid spending big money every year for all eternity on FAs.

Plus we can cut and replace quite a few spots on this roster to recoup lots of this space.

Next step, lockup Scherff. Then supplement on the back end of FA.

Also, if we didn't sign a safety, we were going to need to draft 2. Free's up a pick for another position.
