Just about to post it...super low first year cap number.

45 mil...guaranteed.

Eventually looks like a 4 year deal ...even with the out after the 3rd.

I am good with that structure haha. Wizardry is exactly correct. If he plays well years 4, 5 and 6 will be not that bad due to inflation of the cap.

Agreed also, 4 5 and 6 all happen after any new CBA. I can't imagine anything that would keep the NFLPA getting any less but i could see them getting even more cap money.

Play now pay later. Not a big fan of that. That is a lot of dough for a safety looking at over the cap only Eric Berry 78 mil contract is even close.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

So if Denver is covering about 4 million of Keenum's contract and Collins only has a 4 million cap hit this year, does that mean Denver is paying Collins to play safety for us this year? That's cool. Thanks, Broncos.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

So basically the Redskins are back loading this contract?

And reportedly the guaranteed amount is $30+ million, NOT $45 million

Kudos to this Front Office.

Collins only counts 4M against the cap next season!

Ha, speaking of that guy (off topic)...was listening to the sports radio earlier, and John Elway is like "He’ll have a chance to make the football team so we’ll see what he does."

Love ESPN. Their fucking ad works clear as day, but the Riddick video doesn't. Tried on more than 1 device. NFL.com videos work just fine. Fuck you ESPN.

Smart contract, again.

Tyrann Matthieu having signed with the Chiefs for a similar APY definitely reinforces the feeling we overpaid. But again we weren't getting a player of that caliber without overpaying a bit. Nobody would want to come otherwise.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

The important thing is the signing bonus is small, so getting away from the Collins contract is easy after the guaranteed years pass by. It's a good deal for the team - he clearly wanted to play with the Skins at some point in his career.

Everyone really needs to ignore the $14M average annual value because with the way it's structured it's much more like a 2-3 year deal with options to continue the relationship.

Collins and the agent said they wanted the highest average annual value, Collins said he wanted to be a Redskin, and the team said OK we'll make it all happen but we're not taking a lot of risk by giving a big signing bonus. And they made it work.

As always we have to wait for full contract details before we can judge a free agent signing. This one's good.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

Very reasonable deal, people that were scoffing over the initial numbers are looking pretty silly now.

Never judge a deal on the initial numbers.
