Alex Collins Motorcycle Accident, Death – Arkansas– (August 26, 1994 – August 14, 2023) was an American football running back. He was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round, 171st overall, of the 2016 NFL Draft. Collins spent two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens in 2017 and 2018 before getting re-signed by Seattle in 2020. He played college football at Arkansas. Alex Collins, a running back with the Baltimore Ravens, was engaged in an automobile accident early on Friday morning in Owings Mills, Maryland, and he was subsequently arrested. Both the Baltimore Ravens and the Baltimore County Police Department have acknowledged that the arrest took place, as reported by Sarah Meehan and Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun. There was no immediate announcement made regarding charges.
According to Meehan and Shaffer, at approximately 6:48 a.m. Eastern Time, police were summoned to the site of a vehicle smash into a tree located approximately one mile away from the Ravens’ team facilities. There is no evidence to suggest that Collins was operating the vehicle at the time. In the fifth round of the 2016 NFL draft, the native of Florida who is currently 24 years old was taken by the Seattle Seahawks. After being released by Seattle in September 2017, he soon after signed a contract with Baltimore.
Before suffering a foot injury early in December 2018, which forced him to be placed on injured reserve for the Baltimore Ravens, Collins participated in ten games for the team in 2018. When the new league year starts on March 13, the player who attended the University of Arkansas will be eligible to become a restricted free agent. According to a report published on February 7 by Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, the running back “might not be retained” as the
Ravens look for “someone more explosive and versatile in the passing game.” After contacting with law enforcement, Chad Steele, vice president of public relations for the Baltimore Ravens, stated that the team is “aware of the situation” in a statement to the Baltimore Sun.
