Well, shoot. This is hard to write about. Nick Collins, Green Bay Packers’ Safety who suffered a neck injury against the Panthers in the second week of the 2011 season has been released by the team. Nick Collins was drafted by the Packers in 2005 in the second round. He started ninety-five games and had twenty-one interceptions, five fumbles, two fumble recoveries and four touchdowns. He owns a record through the Packer franchise with nearly 300 interception return yards in 2008.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, there you have it.
I’m going to go cry now.
P.S. I forgot to mention the fact that he was let go out of concern of his neck injury, and the risks associated with him furthering his career all around, not that we didn’t believe he would do well. My apologies.
