Packers Sign Nick Collins and Charles Dillon

The Green Bay Packers signed two players: one is looking to reach his third straight Pro Bowl and the other will be lucky to reach the practice squad.

Why did they decide to sign WR Charles Dillion now? He was 6'0" 186 lbs. back at the 2008 NFL Combine, according to NFL Draft Scout, but apparently he's up to 200 lbs. as an Arena League player. He hasn't been on an NFL roster since August 2008. It will be surprising if he makes it past the April mini-camps.

Back to the real signing, FS Nick Collins signed his one-year tender contract. He really had no choice. Another team would have to surrender their 1st and 3rd round draft choices to sign him, and the going rate for a quality safety is only a 4th and 7th round pick, which is what the Cardinals had to trade for S Kerry Rhodes. No team was going to go up to a 1st and 3rd for Collins. Glad to have him back, but he can't be too happy with his options at this point.
