The New York Giants are reuniting with former safety Landon Collins after he announced that he was signing back with the team. Collins reunites with the team that drafted him 33rd overall pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He spent four years with New York before playing three years with the team’s NFC East rival, the Washington Commanders. While it may be too soon for him to play in Week Five, expect Collins to quickly get reacclimated with the roster.

In his career with the New York Giants and Washington Commanders, Landon Collins has recorded 482 solo tackles, 676 total tackles, ten sacks, seven forced fumbles, 39 passes defended, five fumble recoveries that he returned for 62 yards, and 11 interceptions that he returned for 97 yards and one touchdown. In his NFL career, Collins has been named an All-Pro once and made three Pro Bowls. He won all of those awards while with the New York Giants.
Landon Collins is taking the practice squad spot of veteran LB A.J. Klein, per source. Klein was added by the Giants earlier this week. He is being signed by another team off the Giants PSquad.

The New York Giants are currently sitting at 3-1 on the season and with that comes a major shift in focus. Instead of this being a rebuilding year with a new Head Coach, the team has its eyes on a potential NFC East title. Landon Collins is familiar with the team and has had success there before. This could be a perfect match heading into the middle of the NFL season.
