ESPN's Josina Anderson was first to break the news that Collins has agreed to a deal with Washington; others have since followed up, reporting that the three-time Pro Bowler will sign a massive six-year, $84 million deal with $45 million guaranteed.

The Chiefs have stayed mostly quiet throughout this period, with a few rumors of interest flying around, but nothing imminent. Norman signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Redskins in 2016 when Gettleman, then the Carolina Panthers GM, made a decision to remove the franchise tag from him.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was then GM of the Panthers, which led Norman on Monday to tweet, "In "Gettleman" WE Trust (All-DBs) securing the" money.

In 59 career games with the Giants, Collins had eight interceptions but none last season.

The Giants defense stumbled late in the season without Collins in the lineup.

As for where Collins will end up for the 2019 season, whether it's the Giants or a different team, here are 15 bold predictions to consider for the free agency, including where the safety could wind up. Kansas City's Eric Berry, who plays the more coveted free safety position, is the NFL's highest-paid safety at $13 million per season, but he signed his deal two years ago and the salary cap has since gone up. He led the Giants with 96 tackles last season and his 437 since entering the National Football League in 2015 are the most among safeties in that time.
