Landon Collins Signs 6 Year Deal, Worth $84 Million With Redskins.



The Washington Redskins will add a safety who has shown an ability to excel in the box with a physical style. How much is that worth? For the Redskins on Monday, it was worth six years and $45 million guaranteed, most by any safety.

“It helps that Collins turned only 25 in January; he’s a three-time Pro Bowler just entering his prime. He once told ESPN’s Dianna Russini before the 2015 draft that his dream was to play for the Redskins because of the late Sean Taylor. The Redskins have had multiple safeties come through town who have said the same (Su’a Cravens/D.J. Swearinger) but Collins is, by far, the best of the group.” – John Keim

Also, the Redskins have failed to adequately address this position for a decade, opting for lower-round picks or older veterans in their final years. It hasn’t worked. They tried Swearinger the past two years and, though they liked parts of his game, they did not like everything — and especially not him continuing to speak out. So they cut him.

The Redskins have not been big players in free agency the past few years. But team president Bruce Allen said at the Senior Bowl that they’ll pay for what they consider a blue-chip player. Collins, for them, is a blue chipper.

And you can’t discount this: Washington hasn’t made the playoffs in three years; the Redskins need to win. Fans are staying away more than ever and while Collins alone won’t sell a ton of tickets, they paid more hoping he brings W’s more than fans.

Will bringing Collins to DC help Washington brings Wins?
