Giants Reunite With 3-Time Pro Bowl Safety

The New York Giants are bringing one of their former superstars home. NFL Insider Josina Anderson announced Thursday morning that safety Landon Collins is signing with the team and will travel to London, England to be present for the team's Week 5 matchup with the Green Bay Packers. Collins rejoins the Giants after a three-year stint with the Washington Commanders. The time away from New York coincided with a precipitous fall from grace for the three-time Pro Bowler, which reached its nadir in 2021 with a disastrous 121.4 passer rating allowed on throws in his direction. He'll likely serve as depth behind starters Julian Love and Xavier McKinney until he's better acclimated.
Collins initially entered the NFL as the Giants' 33rd overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He quickly rose to prominence in the league, earning a first-team All-Pro in his second year and the first of his three consecutive Pro Bowls. He left the team in 2019 for Washington on a massive six-year, $84 million deal, but he didn't live up to expectations and was cut after three years.

Collins will now have a chance to reestablish his value with the franchise that first made him a star. He nabbed eight interceptions and broke up 32 passes in his first 59 appearances with the Giants.
