By the numbers: Jamie Collins' impact on the Browns D

Jamie Collins joined the Browns in late October after New England dealt him to a Cleveland team still searching for its first win.

But Collins, a 2015 Pro Bowler and the Patriots' leading tackler during their 2014 Super Bowl run, approached his new home like a professional. And in the process, he made an immediate impact on a young Browns defense.

We're breaking down Collins' 2016 season by the numbers:

69 — Collins had 69 tackles as a member of the Browns, making him third in stops behind only fellow linebackers Christian Kirksey and Demario Davis.

112 — In all, Collins made 112 stops through eight games with the Browns and seven in New England. That's the most he's had since making the Pro Bowl in 2014.

27 — At 27 years old, Collins is poised to step up as an impact player for the Browns. Since he was drafted by the Patriots in the second round of the 2012 draft, he's amassed 360 tackles, 11 forced fumbles, 12.5 sacks, five interceptions and 16 pass breakups.

15 — Collins had a season-high 15 tackles in a loss to the Bengals in December. Thirteen of those stops were solo efforts and he also recorded a sack on Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton.

10 — In what was perhaps his most complete performance, Collins made 10 tackles, a tackle for loss and a sack against the Ravens on Thursday Night Football in Baltimore.

8 — After the trade to Cleveland, it didn't take Collins long to acclimate to the Browns; he had eight tackles and a tackle for loss in his debut against the Cowboys in early November.
