Mike Francesa couldn't believe his ears when he learned Monday that former Giants safety Landon Collins is reportedly signing a six-year, $84 million contract with the Washington Redskins. That per-year salary of $14 million, especially for a strong safety like Collins who primarily plays in the box, signals a significant shift in the safety market from a year ago, when strong and free safeties alike saw the market dry up. But for Collins, jumping in the NFC East from the NewYork Giants to the Redskins wasn't even a tough decision. Washington is one of them.
Collins, a three-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro in 2016, will get $45 million guaranteed that will be paid out over the first three years of the deal.

In 59 career games, the Alabama product has 428 tackles and eight interceptions. While Collins has talent, his average-at-best coverage makes this deal carry some extra risk.
That said, Collins won't be asked to do as much in that area with the 'Skins.

Analysis indicates increased activity at two key sites - the Samundong missile research facility and the Sohae rocket-testing facility.
While most of the attention will be focused on where players like Trey Flowers or Le'Veon Bell end up, Landon Collins is right up there with these stars after the New York Giants chose to let the safety hit free agency instead of using the franchise tag. They know what they're signing him to do.
The deal the Redskins gave Collins isn't ideal. At the same time, Collins perfectly fits what the Redskins needed.
