Nico Collins Compared To Andre Johnson

Sunday, June 9, 1:53 PM

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud gave wide receiver Nico Collins some high praise at this week's mandatory minicamp, comparing him to Hall of Famer and former Texan Andre Johnson. "[Collins is] a generational talent. He's like our age's Andre Johnson, in my opinion," Stroud said. "Just how fast he is, how he gets in and out of his braces, releases, how strong he is. I think last year was just a preview of what's to come for him." Collins had a career year in 2023, going for 1,297 receiving yards on 80 receptions (109 targets) and eight touchdowns in 15 regular season games (10 starts). The 1,297 yards rank eighth in the team's single-season record books, and his eight touchdowns are tied for fifth. The Texans rewarded Collins with a three-year, $72.5 million extension, but he could have a tough time replicating those numbers in 2024 with Stefon Diggs now in town in Houston.

Drake London News

Drake London Manages 41 Yards In Loss

Sunday, January 7, 9:37 PM

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London continued his inconsistent campaign during Sunday's regular season finale against the New Orleans Saints. The second-year wideout hauled in four of his nine targets for 41 yards in the loss. This was a perfect example of how the 2023 season has gone for London. The young wideout shows he has the skills to be an impactful player, but the below average performances by his quarterbacks continues to hold him back. London finishes the season with 69 receptions for 905 receiving yards and two touchdowns. The hope is that his value will go up once the Falcons get an upgrade at the quarterback spot. For now, London should be treated as a WR3 heading into next season.
