Pending free agent Landon Collins of the New York Giants cleaned out his locker at the team's facility on Wednesday, and at that time, said his goodbyes to his teammates, coaches and trainers, per ESPN's Josina Anderson.
According to Anderson's sources, the safety doesn't expect to play for the Giants next season.
Paul Schwartz of The New York Post appeared to throw water on Anderson's report, tweeting that Collins had not in fact cleaned out his locker. As a follow-up to Schwartz's tweet, Collins himself tweeted “The stuff in that locker that I have left I do not need.”
Anderson reported earlier this week that the Giants and the 25-year-old Collins were not in active negotiations on a contract extension. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted on Tuesday, citing sources, that the Giants could place one of the contractual tags (franchise, transition) on Collins.
Collins, who has been named a Pro Bowler in each of the past three seasons, recorded 96 tackles and four passes defensed in 2018.
