Landon Collins Doesn’t Expect To Be Back With Giants In 2019?

Update:

Ralph Vacchiano reports that Landon Collins hasn’t cleaned out his locker as previously reported and the Giants haven’t made any decision on whether to franchise him at this time.

A separate source tells Vacchiano that there’s “nothing new” regarding Collins’ status with the team. Vacchiano adds that there hasn’t been any progress on a long-term deal.

Josina Anderson stands by her earlier report and says Collins could return to grab whatever is left over in his locker. 


Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Giants S Landon Collins cleaned out his locker on Wednesday and his goodbyes to teammates, coaches and trainers. 

Anderson adds that it doesn’t seem like Collins expects to be a Giant for much longer.

The Giants could still use their franchise tag on him before the March 5 deadline to ensure he remains in New York, but that would cost them over $11 million fully guaranteed. 

On Tuesday, Anderson reported that the Giants and Collins are not in “active negotiations” on a long-term deal at this time.

Last month, Collins said he’s hoping they can get a long-term agreement in place this offseason and avoid him playing under the franchise tag

Would I play on it? I’ve got no choice,” Collins said when asked about playing under the franchise tag, via NJ.com. “But it’s not a big concern of mine. I know what I’m capable of. Hopefully we work something out before that. If not, franchise it is. I’ve just got to continue proving myself.

Collins, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Giants back in 2015. He is in the final year of his four-year, $6.12 million rookie contract that included $4.459 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $1,269,621 for the 2018 season.

In 2018, Collins appeared in 12 games for the Giants and recorded 96 tackles, a forced fumble and four pass defenses.
