On Wednesday, Collins told local media he signed a one-year deal. In fact, the contract is two years in duration. Collins got a $2.5 million signing bonus and has a 2011 base salary of $1.5 million. The 2012 portion of the contract calls for Collins to earn a base salary of $10 million.

    Damn. Not bad to sit behind PM
  3. It's basically a one-year deal......a two-year deal makes it easier on the salary cap.

    Those 14 mill or 10 mill mean nothing after the first season Colts will dump Collins and he will never see that money.... This is such a non-story its silly
