Jed Collins expected to beat out Montell Owens


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Jed Collins should beat out Montell Owens in the Lions' training camp battle at fullback, reports MLive.com. The website favors Collins "based on his frame and his familiarity with offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi."

Collins (6-1, 255) spent the last three seasons in New Orleans with Lombardi.


Lions might keep two fullbacks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said the team might keep both fullbacks currently on the roster: Jed Collins and Montell Owens

"Montell can play fullback, but Montell is sort of a tweener halfback/fullback guy," Mayhew told MLive.com. "Obviously Jed, he's a hammering fullback. I've seen him play fullback on some run downs and short-yardage situations, he can play some special teams for you in some other situations. So they're really two different types of players.

"There's a way where you keep both of them, so we'll see how it all plays out."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) The Lions signed free agent fullback Jed Collins, formerly of the Saints, to a one-year deal, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Saints don't tender Joe Morgan, Jed Collins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) The Saints did not tender two of their restricted free agents, fullback Jed Collins and receiver Joe Morgan, because they can't justify paying either $1.4 million in 2014, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Both became unrestricted free agents, with the team hoping to re-sign them at a lower price.

Collins is a valuable lead blocker in the running game, and Morgan is a dangerous deep threat when healthy.

Running back Darren Sproles chipped in with two catches for 30 yards, tight end Josh Hill caught a pass for 8 yards and tight end Benjamin Watson snagged one for 7 yards.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints' role players hardly factor Week 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Saints fullback Jed Collins, tight end Josh Hill, wide receiver Nick Toon and tight end Benjamin Watson were hardly factors on the stat sheet during a 26-20 loss Week 9 at N.Y. Jets.

Collins had one carry for 7 yards, while Hill had one carry for minus-8 yards. Toon was targeted four times and had no catches. Watson, Collins and Hill all were targeted once but had no receptions.

Toon had the best chance to make an impact Week 9, but he couldn't haul in a pass that would have likely resulted in a 51-yard touchdown in the first half.

The Saints are back in action Week 10 vs. Dallas.


Josh Hill, Robert Meachem, Jed Collins among Drew Brees' targets


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2013) Saints quarterback Drew Brees did his best to spread the ball around Week 8 against the Bills, completing passes to 10 different receivers, which means it wasn't just the superstars that contributed, but also fringe players like tight end Josh Hill, wide receiver Robert Meachem and fullback Jed Collins.

Hill had two catches (on two targets) for 17 yards. Meachem had one catch (on three targets) for 15 yards. Collins had one catch (on one target) for 8 yards.


Saints get minor production from several role players


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) The Saints received minor offensive contributions from a few role players Week 6 against the Patriots.

Former New England tight end Benjamin Watson caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 61 yards. Fullback Jed Collins had one carry for one yard and one catch for a 3-yard gain. Wide receiver Nick Toon was targeted four times and caught a 7-yard pass from Drew Brees in the first quarter for his only catch of the day. Robert Meachem was targeted only once and was held without a grab.

Saints backup runners fail to make impact


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2013) Saints FB Jed Collins and RB Khiry Robinson failed to make a big impact against the Bears Week 5.

Chicago did a great job against the Saints running game Sunday. Collins gained just 11 yards on 3 carries, while Robinson picked up 9 yards on 3 carries. Collins was used in the pass game, hauling in 4 catches. He only gained 17 yards through the air.

Collins and Robinson will take on New England Week 6. 


Saints get contributions in passing game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Eight Saints caught passes from Drew Brees in the win over Miami, including rookie receiver Nick Toon and fullback Jed Collins. Toon caught his first NFL pass for 18 yards but also had a bad drop. Collins brought in his only target for 6 yards.

Wideout Robert Meachem was targeted once but did not make the catch.


Benjamin Watson, Jed Collins each catch a pass


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2013) Saints tight end Benjamin Watson caught quarterback Drew Brees' first pass of the game for a 14-yard gain Week 3 against the Cardinals and then did nothing the rest of the way. Fullback Jed Collins' production was similarly lacking. He caught one pass for 5 yards.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
