Well, the NFL offseason certainly hasn't lacked drama thus far. Just take what has been going on with New York Giants safety Landon Collins today.

Earlier this afternoon, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that Collins had cleaned out his locker and said goodbye to his teammates and coaches. Anderson added that it appears that Collins doesn't anticipate being a Giant for much longer.

The Giants have until March 5 to franchise tag Collins for next season. Right now there have reportedly been no negotiations on a long-term deal.

Shortly after Anderson's report dropped, New York Post Giants writer Paul Schwartz rebutted her claim that Collins had cleaned out his locker.

"Attention those who care about the New York Giants: Landon Collins HAS NOT cleaned out his locker at the team facility," Schwartz tweeted. "Repeat: Landon Collins HAS NOT cleaned out his locker at the team facility. Go about your business and have a nice day."

Well, it remains to be seen if Collins' tenure with the Giants is over, but he did appear to confirm on Twitter that he did clear out his locker at the team facility today.

For what it's worth, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo gave his take on everything that has gone down.

Garafolo is a former New York Giants beat writer and remains plugged in to the organization.

If the Giants don't want to pay Collins big money long-term, that's fine. But why wouldn't they trade him at the deadline last year when teams were showing interest?

Stay tuned.
