Packers safety Nick Collins has missed a number of offseason workouts this year, but he insists that he isn’t unhappy with his contract.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel previously reported that Collins was seeking a new deal. However, Collins appeared at a Packers Tailgate Tour stop and told the Journal Sentinel that he missed some of the team’s offseason workouts because of family issues, not contract issues.
Collins recently welcomed his third child, but he said that wasn’t the family issue that forced him to miss workouts, according to the Journal Sentinel:
- “I had some family issues, don’t really want to talk about it,” Collins said. “(The family issues) are the problem.”
- “The contract was never an issue. Y’all are the ones writing all that stuff about a contract. I haven’t said a word about a contract so my thing is I have family issues that I’m taking care of and that’s what I’m dealing with.”
Collins said he wasn’t sure if he would attend any of the Packers’ organized team activities, but he hopes to be there. Collins has started every game he has played for the Packers since joining the team in 2005 as a second-round draft pick.
