Landon Collins will have surgery to repair his torn labrum. As much as we know. What happens after that, and whether he will be in a New York Giant uniform next season, is someone’s guess.

Collins may be a striker at the end of the season. A recovery plan of four to six months would enable Collins to be ready to participate in OTA’s next spring. Should he do that with the giants or with a new team?

Cap analyst and former sports agent Joel Corry expect the giants to use Collins franchise tag. Corry writes:

Collins established himself as one of the game’s best security during a 201

6 campaign where he earned first-team All-Pro honors. He has not done anything to dispel that idea in the last two seasons. Collins 428 tackles are the best among collateral since joining the NFL 2015. The giants who decline asks about Collins when the October 30 trading day went on was a good indication that his future is New York, although negotiations for a new contract have not begun . According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the giants intend to franchise Collins for a long-term deal not signed by the end of the tag designation in early March.

Corry estimates the 2019 franchise tag for collateral amounts to $ 11.287 million, based on a projection project of $ 190 million.

In my opinion this would be a sensible result. Coming from a injury, and in a 2017 season where he was restricted by ankle injury a lot of the year and ended with a broken forearm, Collin’s value in the open market might not be what it could be. The tag would enable the giants to retain a talented player without making long-term commitment. It would also give Collins a year to increase its market value.

Damage Updates

Redskins made a number of rosters last Wednesday to replace injured players. The giants announced that Landon Collins will be placed on IR and undergo surgery for a broken lab. Here is the rest of Giant’s injury marking from Wednesday:

Not Trained

LB Lorenzo Carter (Hip)
LB Tae Davis (Ankle)

Limited Participation

TE Evan Engram (Hamstring)
LB BJ Goodson (neck)
WR Sterling Shepard (Rib)

Undisclosed free agent rookie Sean Chandler is likely to see increased playing time with Collins out. Veteran Security Michael Thomas, who will probably share with Chandler, is impressed by the former Ow temple and says he has “everything”.

“He has enough size to play in place, but he is very fast and very aggressive,” said Thomas. “He is willing to deal with, he can cover well so he has all the talent, he just has to keep improving and learn the game now compared to what he did at college and when he gets it, I’m happy about his career.”
