Report: Undrafted OT Collins signs with Dallas

Posted by Chris Brown on May 7, 2015 – 2:24 pm

LSU OT La’el Collins, who was taken off many draft boards last weekend due to his name being part of a murder investigavtion in Louisiana, has reportedly signed with an NFL club.

Per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Collins has signed a three-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, which is fully guaranteed. The Bills had expressed interest in Collins. Head coach Rex Ryan confirmed on Wednesday that he had dinner with Collins. That dinner reportedly took place Monday night.

Buffalo, Miami and Dallas reportedly showed the most interest in Collins, who was forecast as a first-round pick before the news of the murder of Collins’ ex-girlfriend surfaced right before the 2015 NFL draft.

What’s strange is why Collins to go to a club with one of the best offensive lines in the league rather than join a team with a better chance to get on the field sooner.
