Landon Collins has not been shy about his displeasure over the way things ended with the Giants, but the new Washington Redskins safety seems pretty happy he's on a team where he's "wanted."
In an ESPN episode of "Hang Time," Collins appeared to throw a little more shade the Giants' way when asked why he was no longer in New York.
"I really couldn't tell you what happened," he said. "I'm happy we're [filming] in D.C. because I'm on a team that loves me and wanted me here."
Before becoming a free agent, Collins had expressed his desire to be a Giant for life and was "heartbroken" when GM Dave Gettleman did not so much as even make an offer to the three-time Pro Bowl safety.
He has since intimated that the reason he, along with Olivier Vernon and Odell Beckham Jr., were cast out of New York was because they were "too vocal."
When the Redskins decided to pounce on Collins and give the 25-year-old a lucrative six-year, $84 million deal, it was an emotional moment for the former Giant.
"I started crying," Collins said. "It caught me off guard with my agent calling me up and said, 'How do you feel about the Washington Redskins?' I said I always wanted to be that. Make it happen if you can. ... Calls me back and said, 'Congratulations you're a Redskin, and one of the highest-paid safeties in the league.'"
