Unfortunately, despite indicating the team had suitors for Collins’ services, no trade was ready to be prescribed between head Brad Holmes and another team.

And also, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, both of these guys deserve an opportunity to play for us. To be ready to move therein direction, these are tough decisions that you simply need to make. You don’t like all of them, but it’s necessary for you to grow as a team.”  The team is going to be on the hook for $5.3 million in dead cap for 2021 and $6.33 million in 2022 after moving on from the 31-year-old veteran.
