Zaven Collins to Steve Keim: “We’re gonna f–king kill everyone”


The Cardinals, as PFT reported, likely were taking linebacker Zaven Collins at pick No. 16 if receiver Jaylen Waddle, cornerback Jaycee Horn, and cornerback Patrick Surtain II were already gone. They were, Collins wasn’t — and Collins got the call.

The Cardinals have posted video of the call to Collins from the Cardinals. Collins was ready to go from the moment he realized he was becoming a Cardinal.

“Steve, we’re gonna f–king kill everyone,” Collins told G.M. Steve Keim. “We’re gonna kill everyone. . . . We’re gonna get a Super Bowl ring so f–king big on our finger that show dogs wouldn’t be able to jump over it.”

Coach Kliff Kingsbury then told Collins there’s no redshirting in the NFL.

“There’s no f–king redshirt,” Collins said. “We’re gonna go in and we’re gonna kill it.”

The Cardinals are quietly putting together a very good defense, and Collins gives them a potentially potent and versatile piece. He brings a mindset that could be infectious and deadly for opponents, but hopefully not literally.

  1. I live in Tulsa. My wife is Alumni. Getting to watch this guy play, and then see him go #16 overall was a lot of fun! I think he was a little excited! I hope he has a great career.

  2. It won’t be long before Collin’s gets a wake up call and realizes this ain’t College, it’s the NFL. Big difference.

  3. Every time you see this the guy ends up being a bust. Remember when Josh Rosen was mad about being taken 10th overall… how’d that work out?

  4. Couple this passion with the same intensity from Watt, Hicks, Budda, Chandler, etc. and this Defence will be amped…! “EQ” (emotional quotient) is a value under appreciated in todays game. Excellent pick by the Cardinals.
