National Football League. The 38-year-old Collins was the first draft pick, fifth overall, of the expansion Carolina Panthers in 1995 out of Penn State. Outside of Carolina he also played for the New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders and most recently the Tennessee Titans. During his 16 season he threw for 40,441 yards with 206 touchdowns and 195 interceptions and was a two-time Pro Bowler.

With the retirement of Collins and the anticipated release or trade of Vince Young once the lockout is lifted, the Titans will have to make a complete overall at the QB position under new head coach Mike Munchak. Tennessee drafted Washington quarterback Jack Locker with the eighth overall pick in April. Outside of Locker Rusty Smith, whose entering his second year with the team, is the only other quarterback currently on the roster.
