Projected 2019 MVP: Landon Collins, safety.
The Redskins accomplished two things when they signed Collins to a six-year, $84 million contract in March. For starters, they got a three-time Pro Bowl safety, the type of player they have lacked at the position for quite some time. And they took him from a division rival.
I know the Giants are in this weird phase where they want to get rid of all of their good players (look out, Saquon Barkley; play too well and you could be next). But this was a pretty nice move.
The strength of this team is certainly going to be the defense, and there are few players better than Collins to build around. He’s known as an elite run-stuffer, which is going to be key when you’re in a division that includes Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott and Jordan Howard.
