Will Someone Please Hire Nick Collins?

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.

And then Monday night came this.

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?

    I think the Packers owe him a full physical, for one

    I remember someone posting that the initial reason they cut him was because there was a cist in his nick, and not too long ago, they foundthe cist was gone. IT’S WORTH A LOOK, ESPECIALLY WITH HOW BAD OUR SAFETY CORPS IS!

    Other than that, Collins has stated he wants to be a coach some day! If he can’t play then at least freaking give him a clipboard!!! He might have what it takes to properly teach those terrible safety’s of ours!

    It’s cYst not cIst. And, he had neck fusion surgery. He hasn’t played since 2011. Nobody is going to sign him because he’s not physically able. Is it the so-called terrible safeties or the terrible DC?

    I want him back. If not on the field, as some sort of coach
