Landon Collins breaks the ice on a loaded safety free agent class

NFL: Chicago Bears at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Not surprisingly, one of the biggest names on this year’s free agent market took little time to find a home. Former GiantsPro Bowl safety Landon Collins is heading to Washington on a 6-year, $84 million deal as NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported.

The deal carries with it an astounding $45 million in guarantees over the first three years.

Collins was a pipe dream for a team like the Raiders who are looking to bring in a safety. They went all out in a trade for Antonio Brown last week and came after former Patriots left tackle Trent Brown, handing him a record deal right out the gates.

Though Collins was the prize of the safety market, overall it’s a loaded free agent class at the position which includes the likes of Tyrann Mathieu and Earl Thomas also figuring to have many suitors.

Among the safeties out there I like for the Raiders are Adrian Amos, Clayton Geathers, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
