“The Cowboys had one of the league’s most dominant offensive lines last season. They have now added a first-round caliber talent as an undrafted free agent.
Former LSU tackle La’el Collins signed a three-year deal, per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, who added the deal is worth a fully guaranteed $1.7 million, an unprecedented number for a player who was not selected in the draft and the max that Collins could have been offered.
Collins is currently working to clear his name in a Louisiana police investigation into the murder of Brittany Mills. Collins met with Baton Rouge police Monday and is not considered a suspect. Mills, 29, was pregnant at the time of her death and had a previous relationship with the LSU star. Rapoport reported on Wednesday that test results showed Collins is not the father of the baby who died in Baton Rouge, per a source informed of the results. The legal situation delayed Collins’ entry into the NFL. “
Brian Drennon is glad that Jones was able to look past what has happened off the field, and draft this exceptional player who will surely make a positive impact on the field. The Dallas Cowboys had an exceptional 2014/2015 season, and hopefully they will earn their way to a Super Bowl this year.
