Browns part ways with leading tackler Collins

Jamie Collins had flashes of brilliance with the Browns.

The team added a statement from GM John Dorsey in their press release announcing the move, thanking Collins for his contributions to the team.

It seems as though all three of these teams are in desperate need of some wide receiver talent as Cleveland, Oakland, and San Francisco have all been linked to Antonio Brown.

Releasing Collins will only cost the Browns $2.5 million in salary-cap space this season and saves the Browns $9.25 million in cap costs in 2019 and $13.75 million in 2020.

It is well known that Bowles loves to utilize athletic linebackers in his scheme, and Collins definitely fits that bill, playing as the strong side linebacker in New England and Cleveland in his career and has shown versatility against the run as well as the ability to jump in front of passing lanes.

The move comes as little surprise, following earlier reports that the team was looking to move on from the 30-year-old linebacker and his high cap hit. Dorsey and Collins' agent met in Indianapolis during the National Football League scouting combine to discuss his future over the weekend.

At the time of his signing, Collins represented another new start for the Browns, who have only made the playoffs once since their expansion reboot in 1999. Expect Collins to demand anywhere between $5-7 million annually on a short-term one or two year deal.

Last season, he logged 104 tackles, four sacks, one forced fumble and one interception.
