Pats LB Jamie Collins Can Backflip Like an Olympian (Video)

I’m not sure if every NFL player has a different clause in their contract about what they can and can’t do in the off-season, but I’m guessing that successive (awesome) handsprings for his Instagram followers would probably have Jamie Collins in some trouble with the Patriots organization.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s awesome, but it doesn’t seem like an especially safe way to pass the time. Not even when they’re conducted in a picturesque meadow, as they are here. Take a look at the video to see athleticism in action:

All I know is fun. #GettinTooFatThough

Pretty awesome, right?

I mean, I would expect this from a wideout or a corner, but a linebacker capable of doing this says one of two things: Either the dude is extremely athletic, or he needs to bulk up if he hopes to stop the run.

I’m not sure what the case is with Jamie Collins, but I’m too impressed by those backflips to care.
