New Orleans Saints FB Jed Collins comfortable, confident heading into 2012 .
 
METAIRIE, La. – Jed Collins has found a home in the one NFL offense that on the surface would least likely need a full-time fullback.

Who would have thought, Collins included, that after six teams passed on him – Cleveland twice did – that he’d catch on with the New Orleans Saints, the NFL’s most-prolific passing offense.

“Every team says you get in the room and you have every chance to make the team,” Collins said during the opening week of the Saints’ 2012 training camp. “Down here they truly believe it. You look at the roster and they put it into action. I was given an opportunity last year to compete for the fullback and it’s just one of those right place, right times kind of thing.”

I don't think Corey Hall makes the final 53. He's good but Collins is a beast.

Jed Collins is perfect for the offense that we run

He has the toughness to be a great full back but he also has good hands and can catch out the backfield

All round complete player

I hope Carmichael and Drew remember Payton's secret weapon of fullback plays, and remember to pull them out when no one's expecting. This is one place I think we will miss Payton. Mike Karney 3 TDs against the Cowboys, I remember the Dallas coaches were scribbling on their white boards and gesturing at each other like who the eff is this guy, who keep scoring touchdowns? Totally unprepared for him. I love it when we beat teams with players the other team have never heard of.
