Landon Collins

Landon Collins is a fourth-year pro from Alabama and a two-time all-pro. He has played and started in 54 of a possible 55 games since coming into the league. The one game Collins missed last season cost him his third consecutive season of 100 or more tackles.

Pros: If 12s want a return to the Legion of Boom, he is the guy. Collins can hit with the best of them. He may also be one of the two or three best pass coverage safeties in the league. The other big selling point of Collins is his leadership. With both Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas III gone, leadership is a quality the Seahawks can use in the secondary. Collins doesn’t have a big salary this season.

Cons: Collins plays strong safety, the same position as Bradley McDougald. One of the two would have to move to Thomas’ vacated free safety slot. He’s an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. The Giants will want a good draft pick in return.

Wrap: Collins is only 26 if the Seahawks are looking for someone to lead the defense into the next decade, there aren’t many better suited for the job. The Seahawks would have some exclusive negotiating time for a new contract. If they can’t come to a deal, the team could put a tag on him.

Bonus: Ray-Ray Armstrong

This one isn’t a trade. Ray-Ray Armstrong was released off injured reserve by the Giants earlier this morning. Barkevious Mingo has worked his way into the lineup and became a solid contributor at outside linebacker. Armstrong would be an ideal replacement as the all-purpose, fill-in linebacker.

If the goal is to make the playoffs and be a contender for a championship, the Seahawks could use a little help.
