Collins puts clipboard aside, talks with other NFL teams

Todd Collins was jostled from his vacation in the Bahamas on Saturday morning, shortly after free-agency began at midnight Eastern time. Washington coach Joe Gibbs was on the speakerphone. San Francisco called, too.

After five years of carrying a clipboard as the Chiefs’ No. 2 quarterback behind Trent Green, Collins is about to have a busy month.

He was scheduled to leave a Bahamas fishing trip and meet with Washington on Saturday, his agent, Brad Blank, said. The obvious tie to Washington is Al Saunders, the team’s new offensive coordinator who worked with Collins in Kansas City.

Collins does have starting experience, but he hasn’t been in that role since 1997 in Buffalo. In Kansas City since 1998, he has completed just 18 of 27 passes for 229 yards and one touchdown.

Washington is shopping backup quarterback Patrick Ramsey and needs depth behind veteran starter Mark Brunell.

While teams scurried to fly free agents in and out of town over the weekend, the Chiefs had a quiet start to the period. President/general manager Carl Peterson said he didn’t anticipate the club being active at the start of free-agency.

By late Friday, Kansas City was under the salary cap with help from running back Priest Holmes and lineman Chris Bober, who restructured their contracts.

In other Chiefs news, former Panthers long snapper Adam Johnson has been added to the roster. Ed Perry, picked up in 2005 to replace injured snapper Kendall Gammon, is not on the roster.

Somebody ...ANYBODY....sign him please!!! :p
