It seems as if former New York Giants’ safety Landon Collins is still feeling uneasy about how GM Dave Gettleman handled his contract negotiations. Whether or not Gettleman promised Collins an extension and went back on his word is unknown, but Collins had some choice words to describe his feelings towards the Giants’ GM.

Collins, who attended Alabama, chose for his kids to go to LSU over spending the quarantine with Gettleman. That’s as insulting as it can get since Alabama and LSU have a serious rivalry.

The current Washington Redkins’ safety stated a few months ago:

“He’s a liar. He lied to everybody. So that’s a man I do not trust. I would hope nobody else would, too.”

Since then, Collins has joined Washington on a massive contract and found himself struggling in 2019. He was awful in coverage and was torched by Kaden Smith, who bounced around the league in his rookie season. Smith caught the game-winning catch against Collins in Washington in week 16 last year.

The Giants replaced Collins with Jabrill Peppers, who was having a solid season before suffering a hip injury that knocked him out for the remainder of the year. The hope is that Peppers will return in 2020 with a clean bill of health and pick up where he left off. The strong safety, who was picked up in the Odell Beckham Jr. trade, is far better in coverage and more athletic. However, he still has plenty of room for development — he’s also a fraction of the price compared to Collins.
