Will Someone Please Hire Nick Collins?
Former Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins is at it again.
In December, Collins was posted a workout video on Instagram and alluded to the fact that he still wanted to play on Twitter.
Well, Nick Collins still wants to play everyone!
This was Monday morning.
Nickdapick36 is ready for action.

Someone just sign this guy already, huh?
I mean, I’m sorry to say it, but the social media lobbying is getting a little pathetic. Like Uncle Rico throwing balls out in the field.
Collins hasn’t played since week two of the 2011 season, which is when he suffered a neck injury that required spinal fusion surgery. The Packers released him after that season, deeming it too dangerous for him to continue his career.
Collins’ agent agreed that with that assessment, which is probably why we’re getting these social media dispatches.
Anyway, we get it Nick. You want to play ball. It’s probably like you’ve been castrated. We understand. You were robbed. Short-changed. Didn’t get to go out on your terms.
So would some NFL team at least give this guy a physical? Please?
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
