Not a whole lot to say here.

Jed Collins is a perfect fit for a team that is reintroducing the fullback to their offense. It helps that Collins is already familiar with Lombardi and the Saints offense, so it was considered a no-brainer that he would make the final roster.

Collins only played 29 snaps during the preseason and didn’t do a whole lot, but that’s to be expected from a fullback, as they typically go unnoticed. He was a solid blocker for the Saints and will add plenty of help in the run game. We could do a whole lot worse here.
