Former Packer Collins Officially Retires

Former Packers Safety Nick Collins has officially retired from the NFL, NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk reports.

During his playing time with Green Bay from 2005-2011, as you probably remember, Collins was a huge part of the team's defense, collecting 417 tackles and 6 interceptions en route to 3 Pro Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl ring in 2010.

However, in 2011 all of that success ended when Collins sustained a severe neck injury against the Panthers, an event that eventually led to today's news.

Collins, 31, was released by the Pack in October 2012, essentially ending his professional career.
