Austin Collie: “I’ll sign a waiver” to play in the NFL again

Former Colts wide receiver Austin Collie is determined to continue his NFL career even though he’s currently a free agent that’s coming off patella tendon surgery.  He also has a nasty history of concussions, which is almost a curse word in the modern NFL.

Collie is so determined to play football again that he’ll even sign a waiver.


“I’ll sign a waiver, all right?” he said, per USA TODAY Sports. “They’re not going to have to worry about me suing. I’ll hold myself to be accountable.”

Collie says he still has more to prove.

“I just need that closure. When I feel like I accomplish everything I want to accomplish, I’ll have no problem walking away from the game,” Collie said. “But I have more to give.”

I believe the reason Collie has a hard time letting go is because when he was healthy, he was arguably one of the best slot receivers in the NFL.  I’ll admit he’s pretty crazy to be willing to put his health at risk.
