Here’s reminder No. 975,483,936,530,419,034,582,394,534,957,423 that Jamie Collins is an absolute freak athlete.

Watch Collins’ latest feat of athleticism in the video below via Ruthie Polinsky of WPRI in Providence. Spoiler alert, he survived the backflip off a piece of equipment. Collins and the Patriots have avoided thorough embarrassment. So we can just enjoy this clip of a world-class athlete doing a cool thing? Please?

By the way, I lied. There’s more to report from Patriots practice than just the Collins backflip. I apologize for the clickbait a thousand times.

Here’s Tom Brady and the quarterbacks working on their dropbacks and pocket movement:

And the receivers (including rookie N’Keal Harry) going through blocking drills:

(Whoever tweeted those is devastatingly handsome.)

Also, on the health front: safety Patrick Chung returned after missing Monday’s practice. He’s been dealing with heel and chest injuries. Nate Ebner and Obi Melifonwu, however, were absent.

OK, that’s actually everything. More practice stuff on Thursday.
