METAIRIE - After bouncing from one NFL team to the next from 2008 through 2010, nomadic fullback Jedidiah “Jed” Collins appears to have found a home in the unlikeliest of places.

The end zone.

Make that the “Benz-Zone,” as in the newly-named Mercedes-Benz Superdome, home of the Super Bowl XLIV champion New Orleans Saints.

Collins, a 25-year-old former tight end from Washington State, scored on a 1-yard run with 10:39 remaining in the second quarter of Sunday night’s 62-7 demolition of the hapless Indianapolis Colts.

In and of itself, that touchdown is no big deal, merely one of eight scored by five Saints during the nationally-televised game.

But it marks Collins’ third touchdown this season on just five touches from scrimmage, a remarkable achievement considering he’d never touched the ball in a regular-season game during six prior stops around the NFL.

Not once. Not in Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland (twice), Kansas City, Arizona or Tennessee.

Collins will attempt to add to his touchdown total Sunday when the NFC South-leading Saints (5-2) travel to St. Louis to face the winless Rams (0-6) in the Edward Jones Dome.

“I don’t think I’ve been doing anything spectacular to get that (touchdown-to-touches) percentage,” said Collins, one of two fullbacks on the 53-man roster along with Korey Hall. “That’s just getting the ball in good situations, and it shows the importance of getting your number called in the red zone.

Not only did he score the TD, but I noticed several great blocks during the colts game by him. On Ingrams run when he jumped and hurt his ankle, Collins mowed down their LB, and let Ingram get free. Looks like a solid pickup to me!
