Though Collins has continued trying to play, his agent, Alan Herman, has told CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora that the 29-year-old's neck problems most likely will lead him to retire.
La Canfora writes Collins was considering a return to the game and was training regularly at IMG Academy in Florida. “However, at a recent evaluation with the specialist who performed his neck surgery,” La Canfora writes, “Collins was advised not to pursue football … effectively ending the process.”
If Collins’ seven-year career really is over, he’ll have finished with 21 career interceptions (four of which were returned for touchdowns).
