    Detroit Lions exploring trade options for Jamie Collins


    Allen Park — The Detroit Lions are exploring trade options for veteran linebacker Jamie Collins, according to multiple reports Wednesday afternoon. 

    Collins, a holdover acquisition from the previous regime, is coming off a disappointing performance that netted criticism from coach Dan Campbell earlier in the week. 

    “Jamie, look, Jamie had some mistakes,” Campbell said. “It wasn’t, certainly, his best performance and, yeah, I think (Derrick) Barnes deserves a shot.”

    Barnes, a fourth-round rookie out of Purdue, didn’t play any defensive snaps in Monday’s loss to Green Bay and had just five in the season-opener against San Francisco when Collins was forced to the sideline late in the game by an ankle injury. 

    The performances of both Collins and Alex Anzalone drew frustration from the fan base during Monday’s loss, but Campbell defended Anzalone’s performance, particularly his effort, when contrasted against Collins.
