Re: Landon Collins Available

Sign Collins and resign Dix. Start Shaun-Hamilton. Move 2 steps closer to all 11 starters being from Bama.

Re: Landon Collins Available

We need pass rushers, not another safety that can't cover.

Well we have Monte who is facing suspension and Everett who is a solid special teams/back up player. And Apke and a couple other JAGs. We need 1 and I would actually look at 2 new bodies.

Side note, Craig Hoffman brought this up and id agree with him on scheme and safety play...I kinda wish we would have a more traditional free vs strong safety and not go with "it depends" based on looks. Maybe one of the reasons HaHa struggle so mightily. If Collins/Honey badger is a beast in the box...keep them there. You should be putting players in position to win....Ryan Kerrigan shouldn't be out in coverage.

Re: Landon Collins Available

I like Landon Collins. But he is a SS only, has had some issues staying healthy and he is expensive. Not the perfect/best player to spend big money on.

IMO NFL FS is more difficult to find than SS. Then why blow the bank on a SS?
This upcoming safety draft class while lacking the truly elite Safety like we saw last year in Minkah Fitzpatrick and Derwin James, does have a solid quantity of round 2-5 talent. There are starter quality Safety's available in the upcoming draft if we invest a pick on one. The problem is we have so many needs that safety might not be addressed until later in the draft where it is nearly impossible to find a starter. Best Player Available will tell, but can our FO perform?
HaHa Clint Sux Dix is terrible and should not be considered in any circumstance to be our starting FS. The guy has the physical tools but as a player on the field is as dumb as a box of rocks. We wasted a 4th round pick on him.

Re: Landon Collins Available

Collins value isn't as high with all of the other guys there.. I'd take a look at Weddle to be honest

Just don't want to see HaHa out there again. He was terrible with GB and just as bad with us.

All Clinton Dix needs is an offseason program....he was basically learning new coverage schemes on the fly after the trade.....that's not entirely his fault.

LOL! So true.
HaHa shows deficiencies in the most basic of safety skills. He displays the same lack of on the field discipline and smarts he lacked and got him banished in Green Bay. This is NOT a lack of needing a training camp with us.

Re: Landon Collins Available

I think Collins would be a good get for us. I don't want to give up on Nicholson, he made a lot of bonehead plays last year and I wouldn't just hand him the starting FS job. But he's got a lot of range.

Collins is similar to DJ Swearinger, but much better at it. His aggression fits well with the defensive line being stout - our defensive line will help give him the free run he needs to take the angles.

He'll be costly though - I don't know if I'd be comfortable with this signing unless I see Scherff extended to reduce his 2019 cap charge. Still wondering why that's taking so long.

Plus he's not a moron that will air his dirty laundry to the media.

I was expecting (hoping) a new deal for Scherff prior to free agency. No idea what's going on there, they need to get it done.
