His salary would have been the same for any team. Apparently his childhood dream was to play for the Cows.

If the Saints staff wanted him, surely they should have picked him in the draft.

Re: Cowboys sign Collins

I know his initial salary is the same but the stat taxes are not.
Anyone really believe he has not been promised a new deal at X millions after two years.

Endorsements and commercials.

One of Jerry's friends could pay him 1 million / year to endorse their products. He can appear on a radio show 10 minutes per week at 1 million. Someone can pay him to run an O-line camp for kids in the off-season for another million.

There are several ways he could make more money in Dallas than in New Orleans.

Re: Cowboys sign Collins

I would not be shocked in the slightest after everything started and it became obvious that he wouldn't b drafted in rounds 1-3 if Jerry spoke to the agent and said we will sign you as a UDFA and this whole deal was done in advance

Basically telling him, we don't trust you, have no faith in you, not going to draft you but after the draft we do. I find that hard to believe. The child not being his, likely took off some heat. Who knows. He is a Dallas fan I believe is the biggest factor. Why would you not want to play for the team you root for every week.
