Day 1:

John Collins described Mini-Camp after the long layoff.

A lot has happened since we last spoke to John Collins. A few months ago Collins, 23, welcomed his first child. On Thursday Collins spoke to the media after mini camp.

“I think about it more and more everyday. I feel like because of the stuff I see on TV and the stuff he’s going to have to grow up into and I don’t want him to grow feeling like this is normal or feel like this is something natural because it’s not. I feel like it’s my job as a father to lead him the correct way to teach him right from wrong and to hopefully set him on the right path It’s something I definitely I think about everyday, especially as a young Black Man and raising one as well.” said Collins on his perspective on parenthood during the social injustice and racial inequality movement.
