Nick Collins signs his RFA tender

In a move that basically means nothing (except when mandatory offseason activities commence), Packers safety Nick Collins has signed his restricted free agency tender, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Based on the tender Nick received and based on Nick’s desire to stay with
the Packers and to take part in the offseason program, which is
something he really wanted to do, he elected to sign the tender,”
agent Alan Herman told Silverstein.  “Nick really likes it in Green Bay and wants to stay
there.  Hopefully, this will help us finalize a deal as we move forward.”

And so Collins is under contract for 2010, and he’ll earn a non-guaranteed base salary of $3.3 million. 

If the goal is to get a long-term deal, the decision to sign the tender makes little sense.  The only leverage that a player possesses flows from the withholding of services.  With Collins signing his tender, he cannot stay away from mandatory workouts in order to pressure the team to agree to his long-term demands.

The move is even more surprising because it comes at a time when many believe that restricted free agents will refuse to sign their tender offers to protest the fact that the rules of the uncapped year prevented so many of them from becoming unrestricted free agents.  To the extent, then, that the RFAs wanted to set up an informal picket line, Collins just crossed it.

    It couldn’t mean that they are very close to locking up a long term deal?
    We know how silent the Front office of the Packers operate… so I would gather this is a key note to a quickly announced deal with Collins.
    In other words… the closest thing to a leak as it gets around Green Bay these days.
    Either that.. or Collins is playing on the PR beatings the Front Office has taken over the last couple years and is putting the pressure directly on the Packers to get a long term deal done.
    A dark horse option.. it makes any deal that Collins may be included in.. green lighted.

  2. PackRBack says: Mar 9, 2010 12:44 PM

    Ted Thompson values a certain kind of individual, and if Collins goal is to stay in Green Bay then signing the tender to prove he is a ‘packer person’ could be seen as a logical step towards proving he is the kind of person off the field Thompson would want to lock up long term.

  3. Supersuckers says: Mar 9, 2010 12:44 PM

    Steady Teddy..

  4. Milhouse says: Mar 9, 2010 12:46 PM

    Or, maybe, he is happy to be a Packer.

  5. Action Dan says: Mar 9, 2010 12:46 PM

    Florio misses the point. I guarantee they are “THIS” close to inking an extension and this was just a good faith gesture by Nick’s team, as his agent said.
    I would be shocked if a new deal is not announced within the next 1-2 weeks.

  6. superbowl says: Mar 9, 2010 12:47 PM

    maybe now the Packers can quit being cheap and sign him to a long-term contract.
    go Packers, Go Thompson, please don’t screw up handling another player.
    Thompson is an above average evaluator of talent but the man has a personality of a doughnut.

  7. slayyer30 says: Mar 9, 2010 12:51 PM

    Great!! hope more follow. Class act. Glad to see he’s coming back and not holding out. Hope he get’s paid next year. Now we need Atari and another starting CB (for when Harris go’s down- and he will. Love the guy but thats reality) to sign then I have no idea what there planing for the O-line. GO PACKERS!!!!!!!!!

  8. Ambrose says: Mar 9, 2010 12:55 PM

    “Nick really likes it in Green Bay and wants to stay there.”
    Surprise, surprise, surprise. If you listen to the Packer-Haters out there, doesn’t this go against all things that are true?
    There are two sides to every story and Collins’ agent would never agree to this unless there was something in it for Nick down the road.
    Another, among many, of good TT moves.

  9. Chickenfoot says: Mar 9, 2010 12:59 PM

    This just proves how ignorant he is.
    Ho can anyone in their right mind want to stau in Green Bay?
    Seriously, sounds like a player that is trusting management only to take the proverbial squat hump later on.
    Giving this guy a long term deal would be the only smart move TT would do, if he does.
    Paying clifton was an atrocious mistake, he can’t stay healthy.
    Pqaying Pickett was moronic, way too much money tied up in the NT position.
    Letting Kampy go for a Copensatory pick? Utter genius!
    Darrick Martin? Who?
    Steady Teddy my ass.
    Or, is that what his boyfreind says to him right before he takes ol’ one eye to the optometrist?
    Steady, Teddy, steady…….

  11. DB26 says: Mar 9, 2010 1:01 PM

    Goes to show that Collins is a team and character guy. I hope that he is rewarded for being one of the few in the league, whether player/agent or Front Office type. Not much class left in the game!

  12. Packers in Germany says: Mar 9, 2010 1:07 PM

    Nick Collins is much more than a cog in that defense; he is definitely the glue of the secondary and certainly worth a good deal.

  13. superbowl says: Mar 9, 2010 1:08 PM

    action Dan,
    again you are thinking in the small world of GB. open your eyes to the big picture of union solidarity and the players making a stand against the union.
    Florio is trying to point out hte importance in the grand scheme and maybe Collins is being selfish whether he signs a long-term contract or not.

  14. Mick730 says: Mar 9, 2010 1:09 PM

    And of course “superbowl” has first hand knowledge of Ted Thompson and can certainly pass judgement on his personality. I wonder if Rodgers, Barnett, Jennings, Chillar, Harris, Grant and many other Packer players who have received big contracts during Thompson’s watch in Green Bay share “superbowl’s” opinion of Thompson? But if not, it’s probably becaue they don’t know Thompson as well as “superbowl”.
    “Screwed up handling another player”. Which means little “superbowl” misses his Brett Favre doll.

  15. Old_Style says: Mar 9, 2010 1:13 PM

    So it is now a problem when a guy signs his tender and shows good faith for being there for his teams offseason activities?

    The players are protesting the fact that they are now no longer free agents? I guess they will picket themselves then as they are the ones who agreed to this in an uncapped year.

    Now that we have your skillset out of the way, perhaps we can address Collins.

They would have offered him a deal had he waited. They had other prioroties. Thats right Ted Has a boring personality….boring but he is….Steady Teddy..
    I dont get your Green bay bashing of the town considering the town we live in is a mini Green Bay.

    I did enjoy the optomerist bit!

  21. nerd says: Mar 9, 2010 1:31 PM

    Signing that is part of the new deal being worked out between TT and Collins. By signing it and “crossing the picket line,” Collins adds momentum to management’s position in the overall bargaining morass. So they probably gave Collins a couple extra hundred thou to make that statement.
    Now please, TT, PAY THE MAN!
    And btw, Clifton’s contract was a bit large, but it’s also got “per game” incentives. TT=Genius!

  22. Simp McGhee says: Mar 9, 2010 1:34 PM

    Or….
    This means that Collins and GB are no where near a long term deal and Collins has basically said enough is enough. He’s willing to play one more year in GB and keep his mouth shut before testing the market.
    If they were close to a long term deal, it would look like the one Rolle just signed for about $7 mil a year. By signing the tender, Collins is basically saying he’s willing to take the meager $3.3 mil this season in hopes of getting a huge payday next year, because he knows the long term $7mil/year deal with Green Bay isn’t likely to get done this season or at all.
    I’m a diehard Packer fan and I want Collins to stay because I feel he’s a difference maker, but to me this doesn’t look good.

  25. sparky says: Mar 9, 2010 1:37 PM

    This could me an overture of trust on Collins’ part. There were a lot of false rumors about him missing time last year that caused many to spin him into a web of deceit.
    Maybe he really does like it in Green Bay….he’s small town and went to the big whopping Bethune-Cookman remember. To each his own….not everyone likes the metro areas, Chickenfoot.

  26. cjonesenterprises says: Mar 9, 2010 1:43 PM

    Superbowl = tool.

  27. Pthingholm says: Mar 9, 2010 1:46 PM

    @chickenfoot
    That might be the worst post ever.
    The fact that Collins is willing to attend mandatory workouts is only to proove that he wants to improove. He tried staying away last offseason, where did that get him?
    Pickett is a key component of the defensive line rotation. On first and second down he’s the runstuffer you want a nose, and having him in the middle paired with BJ on the end position on running downs is gold. He has prooved his worth and is fairly rewarded.
    Big Clif is easily the most important player on the O-line as they are trying to find the LT of the future. In a division that now holds Peppers, Allen and Vandenbosch you have to have someone reliable to protect A-rods blind side. If he holds up for 8-10 games he is worth the investment.
    And finally Kampman. He’s as good as they get. And by they I mean 4-3 ends. Matching the Jags $11 mio. for a great 4-3 end with recontructive knee surgery doesn’t make much sense. He might have evolved into a great OLB, but we will never know…
    Derrick martin is a special teams star!
    So basically what Ted has done this off season so far is redistribuate the money Kampman commanded to players that were highly productive last year.
    Pack up your bashing and get the facts right!

  29. PackersHome says: Mar 9, 2010 1:50 PM

    There’s a lot of trust on both sides of this RFA. Remember, when Collins was missing OTA’s last off season most were clamoring about him holding out. He missed time for family matters. I don’t believe Nick ever once said he was not there because of his contract. He stated he hoped for a long term contract.
    Why do we have Lamqueens and Kampman talk in here? This is about Nick signing his RFA.
    ADD much?

  30. Bob Nelson says: Mar 9, 2010 1:53 PM

    All players love Green Bay. All the coaches love Green Bay. Green Bay loves the Packers and the NFL.
    There is not a more supportive NFL city. 104,000 population and 73,000 people are at Lambeau for even preseason games.
    The Packers are involved with almost every community event. I think it outranks Disney as the happiest place on Earth.
    They are the only team with double digit World Championships. The World Championship Trophy is naturally named after Packer coach Vince Lombardi.
    Ted Thompson has to break a lot of hearts when all the agents call begging to get their clients to Green Bay. He has to turn players down all the time.
    Nick Collins, like every other NFL player, naturally wants to stay in the wonderful environment of America’s most beautiful city for a long time.

    @Chickenlittle
    Ho can anyone in their right mind want to stau in Green Bay?
    ——-As a place for Joe Average it sucks but as a place to play in the NFL for 5 million a year it’s pretty decent.
    Paying clifton was an atrocious mistake, he can’t stay healthy.
    —-They guaranteed Clifton 7 mil which is as a roster bonus and only for this year.
    If he makes it through the season and then next July tears a ACL the Packers can cut him and owe nothing.
    There was not a better LT on the market for less.
    Only other choice was to ensure Rodgers health to a rookie. And I don’t know of any teams with 3 veteran LT’s sitting around that can be had for a 2nd rounder. Packers had no choice.
    Pqaying Pickett was moronic, way too much money tied up in the NT position.
    They only tagged him…he hasn’t gotten paid yet. Yeah…of course the Packers should assume BJ Raji can start 16 games at maybe the most brutal position in football. And I am sure there are 15 future all pros in the draft GB can get. A top 10 3-4 NT is worth whatever it costs. GB will give Pickett all his money now..no cap…and in 2 years when he starts to break down they will cut him for nothing.
    Letting Kampy go for a Copensatory pick? Utter genius!
    Yeah,Ted should have traded him last summer. Ted and Mike are arrogant and think whatever they touch will turn to gold. But they didn’t and all we can go on is what is taking place today and fact is AK didn’t want to stay in GB. Did you not see his press conference? GB made an offer..he wanted back in the 4-3. I am sure GB can find a way to replace the 5 sacks AK would have gotten them this year.
    Darrick Martin? Who?
    Special teams ace and he got no real money…in NFL terms anyway.
    Steady Teddy my ass.
    Ted does indeed suck but not for any of the points you made.
    Maybe worry less about Ted’s sex life and spend more time learning how to spell.

    Just because media and many fans state that money is the driving force behind every action, decision, and comment emerging from a player’s camp or from his mouth, doesn’t mean it’s true for all players, at all times, in all situations. We NEVER really know why a player ultimately chooses to do something – T.O., Vick, Roethlisberger, Favre – any of them. All we know is what they, or their reps, say.
    For the sake of the team, I’m glad he’s signed, and for his sake, I hope it works out well for him. If anybody deserves big money, Nick Collins does. But the man is not playing for peanuts to begin with, though it may be peanuts in pro ball terms. He’s making a good living. Additionally, he’s on a team whose players and fans love and respect him, in a city whose whole focus is football. He says he and his family are happy and want to stay where they are. Maybe he just wants the to continue the good life he already has, without inviting the protracted, disruptive, even ugly period of uncertainty he can see other players going through.

    Collins, Clifton, Tauscher, Pickett.. You rail on them all season long because they suck–clearly, they wear green.

    Don’t go putting words in my mouth there Shitterson. Although the alternative to what you normally put in guys’ mouths, I guess I’ll stick with words.
    Never once did i call Collins worthless, or Clifton or Tauscher or Pickett.
    I said it was idiotic to pay Pickett when you are paying Raji top 10 pick money.
    Clifton is solid, but he’s past his prime.
    7.5 mil is management freindly huh?
    Big whoop 3 guys signed, still plenty left to go.
    Clifton is over paid, he will play 10 games tops.
    Meanwhile Collins who is young has to wait for his paycheck.
    What about Tramon and Bigby? When do they get paid? How much money is going to be tied up in the defensive backfield?
    TT is a moron for having that many frontline( frontline to the Packers anyway, the rest of the NFL?, not so much). players come up at the same time.
    It must be nice for you to create this superiority complex on the internet to compensate for years of having a small penis.

    Disclaimer: I am writing this note with the full intent that it would be read by real football fans, so here goes:
    I agree with Bob Nelson’s sentiment above. There just ain’t no place like it. Even my 4 brothers said so two years ago, when I finally made my maiden voyage to Title Town, at the tender age of 45. My brothers are all Cowboy Fans, yet every single one of them told me (w/out a wink, or joke) that the Lambeau Football experience was simply the best they’d ever had. These are brothers who live in Arizona, Washington St. and Minnesota. All were also on their 1st trip to Lambeau. This is all NOT TO MENTION that our Dad of 73 years was with us, on his 33rd trip to Lambeau, interrupted by 2 ‘Nam tours and being stationed all over the world. Needless to say, let everyone know, from far and wide, that football started here and it will end here. THAT is the passion of Green Bay football.

    I said it was idiotic to pay Pickett when you are paying Raji top 10 pick money.

    I suppose the Williamses are playing for peanuts.

    Clifton is solid, but he’s past his prime.
    7.5 mil is management freindly huh?
    ————————-
    No doubt he’s past his prime. And yes, 7.5 million is very management friendly. All of his guaranteed money comes in a year with no salary cap. They could dump him next offseason and not owe him a penny. Isn’t that management friendly?

    Chickenfoot says:
    Clifton is over paid, he will play 10 games tops.
    ————————–
    I’m sure you’ll disavow all knowledge of saying this 11 weeks into 2010.

    Chickenfoot says:
    Meanwhile Collins who is young has to wait for his paycheck.
    ————————–
    Good things come to those who wait. I don’t believe Collins would’ve signed his tender and voluntarily given up his bargaining power if he didn’t see a deal coming.

    Chickenfoot says:
    What about Tramon and Bigby? When do they get paid? How much money is going to be tied up in the defensive backfield?
    ————————–
    Again, Ted Thompson is a huge tightwad until it fits your argument to claim that he’s spending waaaaay too much money.
    To answer your question, Bigby hasn’t shown much (and hasn’t consistently stayed healthy) since 2007. Personally, I’m not terribly concerned about losing him. Williams received a high tender. It’s unlikely any team’s going to give up a 1st and 3rd for him. And that attention indicates what Thompson thinks of him. He’ll be signed.

    Chickenfoot says:
    TT is a moron for having that many frontline( frontline to the Packers anyway, the rest of the NFL?, not so much). players come up at the same time.
    ————————–
    I’ll have to look up your exact comments on this topic earlier. You and Majik were both calling Thompson an idiot for having so many guys up at the same time. You know and I know it.

    It must be nice for you to create this superiority complex on the internet to compensate for years of having a small penis.

    Dear Lord, if you aren’t talking about shit, you’re talking about gay sex or penis size. You really need to find a girl.. Or a guy. Whichever.

    I agree with Bob Nelson. There just ain’t no place like it. Even my 4 brothers said so two years ago, when I finally made my maiden voyage to Title Town, at the tender age of 45. My brothers are all Cowboy Fans, yet every single one of them told me (w/out a wink, or joke) that the Lambeau Football experience was simply the best they’d ever had. These are brothers who live in Arizona, Washington St. and Minnesota. All were also on their 1st trip to Lambeau. This is all NOT TO MENTION that our Dad of 73 years was with us, on his 33rd trip to Lambeau, interrupted by 2 ‘Nam tours and being stationed all over the world. Needless to say, let everyone know, from far and wide, that football started here and it will end here. THAT is the passion of Green Bay football.

    Chicken I posed this ? to you earlier. What would have been your alternative at LT? They will all get paid. At least what they perceive their value to be. Unlike Minnesota Green Bay is loaded.
    ================================
    If TT knew how to draft O-lineman, he wouldn’t have to overpay broken down lineman that can’t stay healthy.
    You don’t know they will get paid or not….crystal ball?
    Loaded? Zygi is a billionaire.
    Teamwise? You must be loaded to think the Packers have more talent.

    As you can see, I w had to change my name again. This is starting to be pathetic.
    People can spout racism and whatnot on here and i curse and get banned.
    I had a nice long post back to you, explaining my side, it was actually quite eloquent.
    But, big brother chose to censor me, so alas, you get the last word, as I am not going to typr that whole thing over again.
