"I'm a team player," Collins said. "Do I like playing down there? I'm good at it. If I'm good at it, I'll play there. If I need to be played there, cool. Other than that, do I like playing linebacker? No. No I don't. I don't like hitting big linemen, getting big linemen off me. I'm undersized for being a linebacker. So yeah, I don't want to play down there, but if need to, yeah, I'll do so. I'm good at it."
"I've made more plays at safety than I've ever made at linebacker," Collins said. "I know what to read, I know how to play it, I know where I can cheat at, I know where to disguise it, I know how to make things work."
I guess when you're bad enough at S, you make he transition. He's battled inconsistency and injury since he's arrived in DC. He is better off, assuming he can stay healthy, to move over full time. His coverage and speed is just not compatible with the modern NFL offense. https://news.yahoo.com/landon-collins-doesnt-enjoy-linebacker-182823354.html
