[SERIOUS] Alex Collins has died, per multiple reports
The former Seahawks running back was 28
The Baltimore Ravens announced the death of former NFL running back Alex Collins on Monday evening, news that was also confirmed by the Seattle Seahawks in a separate post.
Update: The Seahawks have announced the cause of Collins’ death as a motorcycle accident.
Collins was drafted by the Seahawks in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Arkansas. He played one year in Seattle, then had a breakout season in 2017 with the Ravens by totaling over 1,100 yards in rushing and receiving, eventually making his way back to the Seahawks for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
I never know what to write when news like this happens, but Collins is a player who was a favorite of many, including myself, and I would be remiss to not give Seahawks fans an opportunity to share anything you want to say about him, even though it is a tragedy that I’m sure everyone is still processing.
