In the game of football, no defense can beat the timing a quarterback and receiver have with one another. For New York Giants' wide receiver Brandon Collins, recent news was not so timely. Collins violated the NFL's substance abuse policy and will be suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season. This news comes at the worst time for Collins who impressed the Giants' coaching staff throughout OTAs and mini camps this offseason.
Collins, a second year undrafted receiver out of Southeastern Louisiana University, was a member of the Giants' practice squad in 2012. Because of his play this off-season, the Giants' coaching staff and even offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said that Collins did not only have a good shot of making the Giants' 53 man roster in 2013, but also to get some playing time at the wide receiver position as well.
Now with this suspension, Collins chances of making the team have dwindled along with his chances of making an impact on the NFL level.
