While the New York Giants are in a complete rebuild and have traded away a number of players recently, they plan on keeping star safety Landon Collins in the fold for the future, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Per Schefter, the Giants will likely use the franchise tag on Collins if they cannot come to an agreement on a long-term contract.

The Giants were shopping Collins leading up to the NFL trade deadline, but their high asking price of a second round pick made things difficult. Still, teams such as the Kansas City Chiefs, Gren Bay Packers, and San Francisco 49ers all made inquiries.
