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

Last season with Big Blue, Collins joked that given Barkley’s blend of size and speed, he was thankful he didn’t need to handle the NFL’s reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Now it is his job to stuff Barkley from the hole for two games per year. It said than accomplished.
After moving from the team that drafted him, Collins added that he believes he is in a better system because of his skill compared to the one the Giants ran last year under defensive coordinator James Bettcher.
“I don’t feel as if I bleed blue anymore,” Collins explained, via NJ.com. “I feel like [the Redskins] know my value and how they will use me in their own defense. I don’t feel as though I was used correctly within the shield I was playing in.”
One reason the Giants allowed this offseason is walked by Collins was the suspicious plot match. Now the 25-year-old gets the opportunity to prove that decision erroneous, first by stuffing Barkley from the hole repeatedly.
