Packers Safety Nick Collins has signed his tender offer (one year, $3.3 million) today, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This is great news for the Green Bay Packers and their fans, who expected Collins to take quite a while to sign the offer.

This breaking news is a good indication that Nick Collins will be back in the fold next season and that he seems to be on the same page as the Packers. Nick will probably have a new contract by the time we see him at OTA’s and Mini-camp this summer.

This deal is another indication that Ted Thompson is committed to keeping last year's core in tact and establish continuity going into next season. Way to get this done Ted.

Quotations: Nick Collins’ agent, Alan Herman

“Nick really likes it in Green Bay and wants to stay there. Hopefully, this will help us finalize a deal as we move forward.”

“We hope to get things moving as free agency moves forward over the next week or so.”
