Jamie Collins denies ever asking for contract similar to Von Miller
New Cleveland Browns linebacker Jamie Collins wants you to know that he doesn’t think he’s Von Miller.
Collins, who was traded to Cleveland from the New England Patriots, brought up Miller when asked if he’d declined a hefty contract extension from New England.
“I’m not Von Miller, just so you know,” Collins said Wednesday, via Pat McManamon of ESPN. “Let’s be smart now. Let’s use some common sense.
“I don’t know [anything] about Von Miller money. Nothing. Never heard of that. Never came out of my mouth. Nothing.”
Collins, of course, went from the high-flying Patriots to the winless Browns, and he’s simply dealing with the career change.
“This is my home for right now, and I’m going to play like this is my home,” Collins said. “This is where I’m at, and this is my focus.”
Collins supposedly wanted Miller money in his next contract, which was cited as a reason New England traded him. It’s Collins against the anonymous leaks right now.
