Colts Sign Kerry Collins!

Kerry Collins is a Colt!

The Indianapolis Colts today agreed to terms with quarterback Kerry Collins.

Collins, 6-5, 247 pounds, is a 16-year NFL veteran who has spent time with the Carolina Panthers (1995-98), New Orleans Saints (1998), New York Giants (1999-2003), Oakland Raiders (2004-05) and Tennessee Titans (2006-10). In 195 career NFL games (177 starts), Collins has completed 3,439-of-6,163 passes for 40,441 yards, 206 touchdowns, 195 interceptions and a 73.9 quarterback rating. Collins’ attempts and completions both rank ninth in NFL annals while his passing yardage ranks 11th in the league.

“It is a good opportunity to have Kerry become part of the team,” said Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell. “He is a veteran quarterback who has started many games and he brings dimension and depth to the quarterback position, which will be helpful. He is familiar with our division and will make a great addition to our roster.”

Collins was originally selected by Carolina in the first round (fifth overall) of the 1995 NFL Draft, the first player ever chosen by the Panthers. In his second season with the team, he led Carolina to the NFC Championship Game, throwing for 2,454 yards and 14 touchdowns that season. In 2000, Collins guided the New York Giants to Super Bowl XXXV, losing to the Baltimore Ravens. He has also started 28 games in two years with the Raiders and 32 games in five seasons with the Titans.

Collins was selected to the Pro Bowl on two occasions (1996 and 2008) and still holds the Giants’ single-season record for passing yards with 4,073 in 2002.

Personally, I think this is a great move. It’s hard to predict #18′s future and his recurring neck in jury. Good to have a strong vet as QB number two.
