Last year as a member of the New York Giants, Landon Collins was not allowed to hit running back Saquon Barkley. Now that the security joined division rival Washington Redskins, he is free to crush away.
“I have been ready to handle Saquon,” Collins said over the weekend at his charity softball event, via Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com. “That is 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 in the hole this time, it’s going to become full-go.”

Last season with Big Blue, Collins joked that given Barkley’s blend of speed and size, he was glad he did not 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 per year. It said than accomplished.
After moving from the group that drafted him, Collins added that he feels he’s in a better system for his skill set than the one the Giants ran last year under defensive coordinator James Bettcher.
“I don’t feel like I bleed blue anymore,” Collins explained, through NJ.com. “I feel like [the Redskins] know my worth and how they will use me in their defense. I really don’t feel as though I had been used within the shield that I was playing ”
1 reason the Giants allowed this offseason is walked by Collins was that the plot fit that is questionable. Now the 25-year-old gets the chance to prove that choice erroneous, first by stuffing Barkley from the hole .
