La'el Collins, What Do We Know?!?

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I get that part about radio silence but there are some general statements he could have made. He never said anything other than he has an alibi. What about wanting to find who did it? Grief for their family? Nope. ...

Grief for their family? Nope. Nothing. If not for that, who knows, maybe he gets drafted. All I know is that if I was accused of it in the media I would clear my name with or without the police. I don't need the police to tell me I'm not a killer.

Re: La'el Collins, What Do We Know?!?

I personally think his agent has advised him really badly.

They have come across as arrogant and looking for money.

But why? There is exactly zero value in his making any statement. I'm not suggesting what you suggest is a mistake, only that he need not make any such statement - there is no value in it, legally, for him.

He has problems right now much larger than an NFL contract, and I'm sure the teams might have appreciated the statement you suggest, but legally any statement could ONLY be used against him. I'm guessing his lawyer told him to keep his mouth closed. It's the smart thing to do.

I say make him an offer, a good one. It would be like getting a fee top 15 pick for even less of a cap hit. If hes guilty then it will come out and he will be jailed. No harm done.
I am definitely all for giving him an interview and feeling him out.

The 32 NFL teams that did not draft him cannot be found culpable ... what did they do other than avoid him for possible future legal issues?

The police for investigating him and/or naming him a person-of-interest in his baby-mama's murder? IDK if there would be a case there either ... they're just doing their job as part of a murder investigation.

It's kinda' an odd situation and maybe the NFL is erring on the side of caution, but in today's NFL climate, they sorta' have to, IMO.

Just one of those situations the guy is gonna' have live through ... at least there's some light at the end of the tunnel in that there will still be some lucrative NFL contracts and an NFL career available to him when it's all cleared up.

But yeah, I agree, ... if there's a way for an attorney to build a case outta' this one, they're undoubtedly working on it as we speak, .
The NFL isnt liable, hes got nothing there, they were just protecting their investments. If he has a shot at going after anyone it will be the state for defamation of character maybe. Even that will make teams shy away because it will create a media circus and they could see it as a distraction. The NFL didnt do anything to him.
Its just an unfortunate incident.

I'd tell La'el Collins one thing, no one in this group has a freaking clue when it comes to crisis management...

I mean, as an agency, you didn't have one team among 32 that you could assuage to drafting your client in the second round?!?

What's really telling? There no longer are any references to La'el Collins on their website...

Cue appropriate music referencing standing by your client...
