Report: No “active negotiations” on new Landon Collins contract

The two-week window for teams to use franchise or transition tags opens on Tuesday and Giants safety Landon Collins is one of the players who could be tagged during that period.

A decision from the team about using the tag probably won’t come at the first minute they are allowed to use it and progress in talks about a multiyear deal might keep the tag off the table until closer to the deadline. A report on Tuesday morning indicates that there isn’t much progress on that front.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Collins and the Giants are not in “active negotiations” on a long-term deal. Collins said in January that he hopes something will work out on that front, but that he will “just have to continue proving myself” if the tag is put into play.

A franchise tag would cost the Giants in the neighborhood of $11.2 million for the 2019 season.

  1. As a Giants’s fan, Collins is one of the few bright spots we have. That said, I have reservations about signing him to a lucrative long term deal because of his lack of coverage abilities. If the Giants use him more in the box, as a pseudo linebacker, they would play to his strength. Maybe if they got a real free safety, who could actually play centerfield, it would help his coverage deficiencies. Until the Giants figure this out, tagging him is the only reasonable option.

  2. Collins has a burning desire to play for the team you root for at a considerable discount. In fact all free agents feel the same way.

    He wants more than anything to have a chance to play for the WASHINGTON REDSKINS.
    There’s a reason he wears #21

  4. He’s one of the few potential free agents that are worth tag money, but the Giants would be better off letting him walk if they can’t get a deal worked out. The Giants are more than a player or two away from being able to compete for the division, so spend that money somewhere else. Safeties, especially in- the- box safeties, are not players you want to break the bank for if your not already competitive.

    Patsies should cut mccourty and sign him. Better and cheaper.

    Do you watch the NFL at all?

    BB calls McCourty a coach on the field and he sometimes wears the green dot helmet.

    Some of you will never quite get it.
