Beckham and Landry were expected to make the early leap to the pros. Collins had been “wrestling” with his decision, a source said last week. Beckham said he recently spoke to Collins. Collins made the decision because he envisions that he’ll be a first-round draft pick next year.

A teammate coming out and sharing this is a solid source, but I'll wait until Jan. 16th before I get my hopes up. Would love to have him back, he's a monster on the left side.
