We hope you all had a great holiday weekend, but we are ready to get back at it here at the Fantasy Guru Global Headquarters in what has become an increasingly warm Southern New Jersey. Today we’ll update you on an old QB riding into the sunset (no not him), the rehab of some important receivers, and a couple of young QBs holding workouts.
Country music star? Stetson Man? Guy who stares off into the distance? Just a few options for Kerry Collins' post-NFL life.
Collins may not return to Titans … as many, including us, expected he would. Titan OG Jake Scott was on Sirius/XM NFL Radio last week and said he didn’t think Collins would return to “be a nursemaid to a young kid” referring to rookie QB and major developmental project Jake Locker.

Scary.
Manning is also in a contract year, and Chappell confirms what we all know: Peyton is going nowhere. He’s talked to both Manning’s agent and GM Bill Polian, and it appears as if Manning’s new contract is a matter of when, not if. But the Colts very rarely do contracts BEFORE the season. They’ve done deals during the year (a la S Bob Sanders), [...]
