FootballLandon Collins Fully Healthy and Ready to Prove Giants Have Top Tier Defense Star safety returns to Giants after multiple forearm surgeries. by Gregg Snyder July 27, 2018 When the New York Giants hit the field, they will have a new-look to their defense. The big difference being new defensive coordinator James Bettcher implementing a new 3-4 system. The Giants have previously worked out of a 4-3 set.One thing not changing, which will make the Giants and their fans happy, is that Landon Collins is healthy and ready to once again solidify himself as one of the best safeties in the NFL.Collins missed a Week 17 game against the Washington Redskins last year after suffering a broken forearm. After coming back to offseason training thinking he was fully healed, it was determined that the break did not heal properly and he was forced to undergo a second surgery.At training camp on Friday, Collins declared himself fully healthy.“The arm is 100 percent,” explained Collins. “I would like to say 110 percent but the reality is its 100 percent. I’m not limited at all. I’m going full go, 100 percent and we are going from there.”When asked if he would need to wear protective equipment during the season, Collins simply said, “No.”This is great news for head coach Pat Shurmer as the Giants lost some secondary depth when it was determined Sam Beal would miss the season due to injury. Collins is a leader on the defense, and someone that has the ability to make game changing plays.The Giants defense struggled last season, ranking near the bottom in the league in many categories. It’s a unit that knows it has a lot to prove. Bettcher’s system is similar to one he ran with the Arizona Cardinals, one known for it’s aggressive approach.“This defense has to prove it’s capable of being one of those top 10 defenses,” said Collins. “We are going to play hard, we are going to play fast and we are going to have a lot of aggression.”Collins is entering a contract year, but says he has no plans to let that be a distraction. He’s made it clear he would like to spend his entire career with the Giants, but does not want to be part of any contract negotiations in-season until it’s time to sign.Collins appears to be all about on-field business entering the 2018-19 season.
