In this article, there is a sentence as follows
A joy to watch, Wenger had come in as the untrusted foreigner, paved the way for others to join, and rewrote the tactical rulebook. Out went the early long ball up to John Hartson and in came Tony Adams collecting off David Seaman.
What does that mean by collecting off here? I have searched on the Internet but I haven't found any definition of it.
Please explain for me.
