I don't think that's the case. He can only sign for a minimal annual salary contract and the only difference from one teams offer to another would be the signing bonus... which is capped. La'el Collins is a very unique case. If he's found innocent of any wrongdoing, he got screwed royally. I'd file a grievance against the league and bring the case in front of an arbitrator. I'm very intrigued at how that could turn out. He could be stuck like chuck, be allowed to re-enter the draft, or declared a free agent. I'm sure his agent and legal team are looking at all the possibilities... should make for an interesting case study.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

As undrafted FA, Collins can sign 3-year deal, not 4-yr as drafted, take advantage of high RFA tender. Could equal 4-yr cash of 2nd rounder.

Great story on UDFA signing OT from Notre Dame (College of Ohio) that I had never even heard of.

I love your comment but he may want to leave the state of Louisiana and never return after what has happened. I hope your right though.
