1. Is Landon Collins a great signing for the Baltimore Ravens?

Landon Collins was once on track to have an elite NFL career. Unfortunately for him, the injury bug came along and derailed things. After playing 1,057 snaps in 2019, he only played 398 in 2020, 675 in 2021, and then just 160 in 2022. That is not the trajectory you want to see.

He will be 30-years old this season, and the wear and tear of the year has finally caught up to him. However, in a smaller role, he could still be effective. Teams are looking at him like he is still just a notch below Derwin James. If you accept that he has limitations, he can still be a role player.

The role would be in the box, as we noted as a nickel strong safety. Essentially, when Collins is on the field the Ravens can move Hamilton into the slot. The Ravens would start Hamilton at strong safety, but in specific looks they could make this move and switch it up. It is a good fit, and at the right price, the Ravens have to be interested.
