    The commanders have released the Strong Safety/LB. They asked him to take a pay cut after signing Wentz and he refused.

    This isn’t a sign him now, sign everybody kind of post…. BUT….. He would be a Solid upgrade over Edmunds AND paired with Minkah we would have one of best Safety combos in the League !!!!!

    I get why people like him, but I don't think Collins would be a good addition at all. He has always been a liability in pass defense, perhaps even more so than Edmunds. His price tag is likely to exceed his worth significantly.

    I don't think he can command but so much. His stock has really dropped.

    There are good reasons for that. He can be a force against the run, but this is a passing league. He came into the league about 20 years too late.

    The Steelers had the 4th Worse Rush Defense in the NFL Last year!!!! If we could defend the run AND Rush better ourselves ( Better OL ) would really up our Game!!

    He was decent in coverage with he Giants. Idk what happened in Washington. But he's not a bad piece to have on your defense.

    I like His game, but I think He'd be a problem.

    I think he could be a good locker room guy too. IIRC on the Giants he was commanding effort from everyone. As mentioned, he plays a game that is a few years ago but like the game he plays. This could allow minkah to take the more pure FS role....

    They need to fix the inside linebacker position and either get Tuitt back or properly replace him. No defense in 2022 can afford to have a safety who is that bad in coverage.

    Collins might actually be worse, which is saying something. I'm guessing Edmunds will be cheaper, so if they are going to go that route, they would be better off just re-signing him.

    I personally can't find anything Edmunds excels at. Besides traits. JMO. I would bet money if He wasn't a 1st round pick He wouldn't even still be on the team.

    I sign Edmonds for cheap. Yeah I said Edmonds he doesn’t deserve an edit on his name lol

    He did alright this past season.

    Not going to list names..like you said about sign everybody lol. But there have been several cuts in past days, more to come as players refuse to take cuts and would rather test FA. There are going to be some decent starting and depth players available. Idk if or how deep we get involved, but there is at least some cash to do it

    Im not a let's sign this guy type of posters. Listening to sports radio the last couple of days there are several starters already released, others who are not getting tagged, etc. Undoubtedly the top guys will set the market, but after the last 2 years with receded called, then last year's diminished Cap and the teams cap woes this is the first timecwe at least have some expectations. I have no idea if they will go splash, but there should be some interesting prospects to fill the many holes we have.

    ok, just stop …… To say Edmunds is better than Collins is so outrageous it dis-qualifies all other comments you make. SMH

    I think Edmunds had his best season in 2021 FWIW.
