This year (2020) I showed signs of being a super top tier player,” Collier continued. I have to go all the way through, complete that and show I can be a top-tier player in this league and for sure the best defensive lineman in the league. That’s what I plan to show this next year.
Collins’ re-signing gives the Seahawks some depth at running back entering 2021. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde will both be unrestricted free agents when the new league year begins March 17, and Rashaad Penny is entering a contract year. After playing with the Seahawks in 2016 as a rookie, Collins was waived by the team during the roster cut-down period ahead of his second season.
Collins didn’t play in 2019, but he signed with the Seahawks’ practice squad in November of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NFL changed rules when it comes to practice squad players for the 2020 season. Members of the practice squad could be activated for games twice without having to be placed on the 53-man roster.
