WTF....are you kidding me? I know he will be expensive over the next few years, but he's worth it imo. I'm sure the Pats don't want to help make us better, but why can't we ever do something like this?

Browns acquired LB Jamie Collins from the Patriots for a compensatory third-round pick.

The Pats seemed to solve their contract logjam by sending Chandler Jones to the Cardinals over the offseason, but they have now offloaded perhaps their best defensive player for a late third-round pick, a compensatory pick they likely would have gotten anyway if they just let Collins leave via free agency in the spring. It is a stunning move which certainly carries much more backstory than we know about right now. Collins should play inside linebacker for the Browns and is a massive upgrade over Demario Davis and Chris Kirksey. As long as the Browns are able to get him under contract, this should end up being a great trade for Cleveland. At the very least, Cleveland should tag Collins to keep him around one more year. New England now has to lock up Dont'a Hightower to a long-term deal.

Heard he wasn't "playing the defense called", and that's why they shipped him out.

Do we really want players who do this sort of thing?

The way our defense plays, not sure our guys are playing the defense called, so why the hell not?

Oh and I'll add there is ZERO chance Bill B. would have shipped Collins to a contender, let alone the steelers who were preseason favorites to be there with the pats in the AFCCG

Collins on the second play of the game does whatever he wants and Bills gain 28 yards. Been happening all year. It was not going to continue

lol one must wonder how stoked Collins is going to the mistake by the lake. It's akin to a detective being put on traffic duty or an FBI agent ending up in Alaska by week's end.

I have a perfect solution for Jamie Collins: bring him in to be a 3-4 OLB in this defense and let him rush the passer about 80% of the time, in coverage the rest. Fewer responsibilities, fewer chances to freelance.

I'm just sick in my stomach that we didn't offer enough to make that deal happen.

b2b DO YOU REALLY THINK that they would have traded him to us?
maybe if we gave them a first rounder?
