Jamie Collins Frequently Wows Patriots Teammates With Freak Athleticism

Jamie Collins is a man of few words. When the linebacker can be found, he’ll answer the media in short, abrupt sentences, and sometimes it’s difficult to track him down at all. After Sunday night’s game when the New England Patriots beat the San Diego Chargers 23-14, the linebacker stayed on the field late for a short interview with NBC’s Michele Tafoya — one of his answers...
