Austin Collie Tweets “Comeback” then works out with Jets

Austin Collie worked out with the New York Jets on Monday, and is looking to make a come back from his history of injuries, specifically his concussions.

PFF Collie is a talented receiver, but is basically one hit away from one last concussion ending his career. Can’t be too appealing to teams 7/22/13 10:33 AM

ConorTOrr As @AdamSchefter noted, #Jets are working out Austin Collie today. Wanted him in mini camp but he didnt want a Winslow-type 3 day commitment 7/22/13 10:20 AM

Collie, who is working his way back from a knee injury that cost him all but a game last season with the Indianapolis Colts, told USA Today Sports earlier this offseason that he would sign a waiver in order to play, if required, due to his history of concussions. via ESPN

My Take:  The Jets can use all the help they can at the WR position and I know that Austin has been riddled with concussions and he could be one hit away from having serious issues BUT, if he’s willing to sign a waiver, let him play.  Can he contribute right away?  Time will tell, but I’m sure Ninja Idzik will give him a deal that has low risk but high reward.  I say do it.  Sign him.
