I watched the video of Keim and Kliff calling up Collins from the war room and the first thing collins and Keim said to each other was "no redshirting"

Also i think this all but seals Hicks fate as a June first cut.

Yeah, but Michael said "We're gonna get you on the field right away" to Simmons last year. Nothing's set in stone between May and September.

I don't think this is a big deal. We'll have a lot of veterans out there on the defense; wouldn't be surprised to see Budda wear the dot early if it comes to that.

If and When coaches after watching practice tapes say "ahhhhh... This guy needs time". That is it. Another Simmons like year for Collins.

Having said that Hicks and Kennard will be post june cuts.

If true, makes me feel a bit better about the pick but didn't Hicks take a paycut earlier in the off-season? Would be shocked to see us cut him after that or even bench him for a rookie.

If they got a decent trade offer I'm sure they would move him but I think they keep him for experience and rotation.

15 million over two years is cheap for a backup ILB?

We all want Collins to play right away but cutting Hicks would be dumb unless they think Evan Weaver is ready for snaps. Ride out Hicks and cut him after the season. Nobody is trading for him.

Whether playcalling/communication might be adversely impacted is hard for any of us to know. But Collins is familiar playing the ILB position and making those calls, and I would add has above average intelligence, he was valedictorian at his high school, and played QB. Imo, he should be up for the task. Communication could actually be improved. . .

Why would you expect any rookie to come in and have masterful command and squad control of an NFL defense from day one? They'll have Collins in quick enough.
