Former Colts wide receiver Austin Collie is determined to continue his NFL career even though he’s currently a free agent that’s coming off patella tendon surgery. He also has a nasty history of concussions, which is almost a curse word in the modern NFL.
Collie is so determined to play football again that he’ll even sign a waiver.
“I’ll sign a waiver, all right?” he said, per USA TODAY Sports. “They’re not going to have to worry about me suing. I’ll hold myself to be accountable.”
Collie says he still has more to prove.
“I just need that closure. When I feel like I accomplish everything I want to accomplish, I’ll have no problem walking away from the game,” Collie said. “But I have more to give.”
I believe the reason Collie has a hard time letting go is because when he was healthy, he was arguably one of the best slot receivers in the NFL. I’ll admit he’s pretty crazy to be willing to put his health at risk.

Free agent receiver Austin Collie isn't finding any takers this late in the offseason. He's been working hard to get back into shape, but his big list of previous injuries, especially the episodes with the dreaded 'C' word, has teams all but ignoring him.

Concussions have been at the forefront of safety talk for some time now, and much of the NFL landscape has been shaped, in recent years, by the added stress put on safety, especially in the head and neck area.
Still, some players just want to play football.
