Green Bay Packers Release Nick Collins

Last week, the Green Bay Packers released veteran safety Nick Collins. Collins suffered a season-ending neck injury last season and was recently cleared from surgery. However, the Green Bay Packers did not want to clear Collins to play due to the nature of his injury. The Packers do not want to assume the risk associated with Collins' injury. Collins has not decided yet whether or not he will play for another team or retire. Collins has played for 7 seasons in the NFL, all of them as Green Bay Packer. If Collins wants to stick with football, he will have to find a team that will assume the risk of his injury and he will have to pass a physical. Both Packers coach Mike McCarthy and GM Ted Thompson said that they didn't think it was in Collins' best interest to return to the game due to the seriousness of his injury. You hate to see something like this happen to a talented player like Nick Collins, but it seems like it's time for him to retire from the game. It would be terrible if he further injured his neck and if he did, who knows what the end result would be. For his own health, Nick Collins should return from the game of football.
