Browns' big trade pays off, as linebacker Jamie Collins agrees to stay with huge extension (Shutdown Corner)

The Cleveland Browns must have felt like the best chance to land a big-time free agent like linebacker Jamie Collins was to get him in the building for a while, make him feel comfortable, and take advantage of their exclusive negotiating window with him. The Browns’ personnel moves are often mocked, but give them credit: They nailed this one. The Browns and Collins, who Cleveland acquired in a midseason trade with the New England Patriots, have agreed to an extension.
