Listen: Landon Collins, Giants, Patriots discussed on WEEI at Night
"Twenty two yard touchdown. Four years. Eighty eight million fifty million guaranteed, and let me say this about falls. I'm happy for the guy. I'm glad he got this money. But one thing with this amount of money. They're giving foles about twenty two million dollars a year eight million. I mean, who would they bidding against the only thing I'll say, you know, who else was gonna sign Nick foles. I understand that. He's people like him. He's a good quarterback. But the only spot logically were Nick foles could start was Jacksonville. So I don't know if Jacksonville may be needed to give them all that money, but they did. And now Nick foles has a new home. Speaking of tea is speaking players with a new home. Landon Collins was not franchise tag by the giants. But he's going to be still playing the giants twice a year. Landon Collins signed a six year eighty four billion dollar deal with the Redskins forty five million that is fully guaranteed. And you know, Landon Collins would love nothing more. But to do this. To ally. Manning next year. Landon collins. One. Kevin Harlan on CBS with the call. Listen, the giants to me still look like fools for how this unfolded because they got nothing for a guy that a team in your own division thought was worthy of eighty four million hours. I get you didn't want to give Landon Collins forty five million guaranteed. That's understandable. Landon Collins is getting more than what it costs a cost. The giants to franchise him the giants slapped the franchise tag on Landon Collins, it would have only cost eleven point three million. Landon Collins with his average annual salary right now at eighty four million divided by six is making fourteen million dollars per year. So his agents got him an extra three million dollars per year. Now, what the franchise tag would have been. So Landon Collins said, okay, don't franchise me. I'm gonna go get more money on the open market. And you know, what he did? So I understand the giants not wanting to bring it back because if you think he's limited, and you don't think he fits that's your prerogative. But to not get anything for the guy. Landon Collins in your own division. He might be able to hurt you next year. Those games are going to be fascinating Cowan's making tackles on Odell or lining up against Barkley. In fact, giants it's probably love that. Because apparently accounts can't cover so get saquon online to Collins, and we'll see what happens, but. How about that? Landon Collins wasn't good enough for the giants. But he stays in the division and scientists six year deal. Unbelievable. Other news they hit on here. And we have a lot coming up. In case you missed it. Busy sports weekend. Trey flowers has a new home. New England didn't franchise them flowers signs with the lions a deal worth reportedly about fourteen fifteen million dollars per year and the lions continue to try to be the patriots. They also signed former patriot. And most recently former dolphin wide receiver Dany Avin Dollah to a one year deal worth about four and a half million dollars. Here's the thing with the lions. We're trying to be the patriots. But they don't have Bill ballot. Check Tom Brady. So they're like the minor league patriots. But they're going to do their thing. They're GM is a former patriot front office guy. Bob Quinn, head coach, Matt Patricia. I tried to trade for gronk last year that didn't work the New England Patriots are now turning into the Detroit Lions or at least part of the bar. Our their news kion our sorry. Alec Zander four year fifty four million dollar deal with the Niners. Really good linebacker. Maliki? Jackson signed a deal with the eagles three years thirty million and big trade. Today. Eagles traded a late round pick to get this. Sean Jackson back in Philly about that Jackson was gonna either be released by the bucks traded eagles swoop in maker trade and to Sean Jackson gets traded back to the Philadelphia Eagles. How about a move for my team? No, it's not bell just yet. But the jets signed Jamison Crowder to three year. Contract. And it's a really good move to help Sam darnold. Crowder, someone that could be an impact player in the slot. Crowder, someone that could go out there and help Sam darnold in this. Adam gates offense get him another playmaker. So the jets who needed to add talent period. Add some talent today by inking. Jamison Crowder too many three year deal sticking with the lions tight end. Jesse James signed a deal with the lions. And this story to me is fascinating. The bills decided to sign Frank gore to a one year two million dollar contract. Frank gore is thirty five years old. He will be thirty six by the time the season starts next year. And you know, what I got nothing but love for Frank gore. This dude was in Miami last year. He's choosing to go to buffalo. On his own. He loves football so much. Frank gore is going to be thirty six. He's been in the NFL since two thousand five he plays a running back."
