Last year as a member of the New York Giants, Landon Collins was not permitted to hit running Saquon Barkley. Now that the security joined division rival Washington Redskins, he is free to smash away.
“I’ve been ready to handle Saquon,” Collins said over the weekend in his charity softball event, through Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com. “That’s my man, however. All love to him and he’s been doing his thing as we all know. But when I get to meet him at the pit this time, it’s likely to become full-go.”

Last season with Big Blue, Collins joked that given Barkley’s blend of speed and size, he was thankful he didn’t have to handle the NFL’s reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Now it is his job to stuff Barkley from the hole for 2 games a year. It said than accomplished.
After moving on from the team that drafted himCollins added that he believes he’s in a better system because of his skill set than the one the Giants ran last year under defensive coordinator James Bettcher.
“I don’t feel as if I bleed blue anymore,” Collins said, through NJ.com. “I feel like [the Redskins] understand my value and how they will use me in their own defense. I don’t feel like I had been used within the shield that I was playing in.”
