Collins was drafted by the Packers in the second round of the 2005 draft. He played in 95 regular season games and 4 post season games, recording (in regular season) 419 combined tackles, 6 forced fumbles and 21 interceptions. His most famous play as a Packer might be his pick six of Ben Rothlisberger in Super Bowl XLV.
The Packers released Collins in April of 2012, believing that his injury would prevent him from safely returning to football.
On behalf of everyone at CheeseheadTV, we have and will continue to miss Nick Collins in the defensive back field for the Packers, but we are happy to know that his safety and health are top priority. We wish him wil ln the next chapter of his life. He will always be Packer People.
