It wasn't just Odell Beckham Jr. who bashed the Giants on Monday. Landon Collins also jumped in on the action.
However, he didn't use his words to send his shots their way.
Collins made an appearance on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C., and he began to talk about his upcoming season with his new team -- the Redskins. The Pro Bowl safety went into free agency this offseason after the Giants failed to give him a solid look at an extension. In turn, he signed a six-year deal worth $84 million with $26 million guaranteed, which is his first big contract since his rookie deal expired.
But, while discussing his new role still in the NFC East, Collins made sure not to mention the Giants by name.
"I have something to play for, just within myself, because I haven't finished the last two years," Collins said. "For that reason and just knowing what I can do, and the struggles I've been through with the other team I was on, I know I can be better."
The hosts of the show tried to get Collins to say who "the other team" was, knowing that he was blatantly avoiding the name. Collins didn't see a point in mentioning his former employer.
"It's no point," he said. "It's no point in saying their name."
Collins is still clearly frustrated about what happened with the Giants, and like Beckham, he hasn't been shy voicing that. There was an added incentive to stay in the division to face the Giants twice a season for the next six years, something Collins has publicly acknowledged as games he's looking forward to.
In four seasons with the Giants, Collins made three straight Pro Bowls from 2016-2018, while leading the team in tackles across those years. He was a defensive pillar for Big Blue, but a commodity that GM Dave Gettleman didn't see worth that much money. Instead, he filled Collins' void in the Beckham trade with the Browns, who sent over S Jabrill Peppers in the deal.
