Zaven Collins moving to outside/edge
According to team reporter Darren Urban, Arizona Cardinals third-year LB Zaven Collins is being moved from inside to outside, getting reps as an edge rusher in the team's new defense.
Nick Rallis, the Cardinals' new defensive coordinator, comes from Philadelphia and sees Collins' size as having potential on the outside. In college, Collins was primarily an interior linebacker. Though he had experience as a pass rusher, it was typically as a blitzer. Collins only played about 18% of his snaps on the edge in 2022, though Urban says that, due to injuries and youth, Collins could be an immediate starter outside in 2023.
