Just one of the most crucial conclusions the New York Giants and common manager Dave Gettleman have to make this offseason is what to do with safety Landon Collins.
Poised to come to be an unrestricted no cost agent, Collins will arguably hit the market place as 1 of the most appealing players – and most certainly the most appealing safety – readily available.
Accordingly, Collins is envisioned to land a considerable offer if he’s not designated the team’s franchise participant, with Professional Football Aim projecting a five-year, $57.5 million deal.
10. LANDON COLLINS
Immediately after earning 81.-plus overall grades in Many years 2 and 3 of his career, New York Giants safety Landon Collins fell to a 70.4 overall quality in 2018. He’s still additional than proved he can be a video game-changer at a situation few teams have on their roster, so he should really draw a rather penny if he can make it to the open up market place.
“The franchise tag is certainly a likelihood for Collins. The Giants will have the cap space to use it. Collins could dig in on a deal provided that the last time the Giants GM used the tag he at some point rescinded it and permitted the participant to come to be a no cost agent when he recognized they would not get a long-phrase offer carried out. My guess is the sides will get the job done off of the Harrison Smith deal that was signed in 2017 and additional in line with the relaxation of the market place at $10.25 million a year.”
Projection: 5 years, $57.5 million, $34.5 million GTD
Now, the projected benefit of the franchise tag for a safety sits at $12,037,000, so the yearly variation among that and a long-phrase is fundamentally null. On the other hand, the Giants could use the franchise tag to preserve Collins in East Rutherford as they negotiate a long-phrase offer.
Previously, Collins stated he would be keen to perform on the franchise tag in 2019, but he and his illustration would obviously like to prevent that if feasible.
