Here's the deal on La'el Collins deal with Dallas: Cowboys fully guaranteed the 3-year, $1.65 million deal, per source. Fully guaranteed.

Re: Cowboys sign Collins

Makes sense. That's his favorite team. We were not even in the mix. Strange being from La an not even consider it.

Heard he only wanted to play tackle and I think we're set there for now

Can't blame the dude for wanting to get out of LA and play ball.

I wish him well but damn I wanted him. Dallas O line just got better.

Re: Cowboys sign Collins

Cowboys lost DeMarco Murray, who was, arguably, the main reason for their success offensively last season. Now they have McFadden back there, who has had one healthy season in his career. Cowboys are now one dimensional, offensively. A lot harder to be successful when you're one dimensional. Plus Romo isn't elite. So Collins going there doesn't equate to success for the team. But he gets to play tackle, which is what he wanted

The Cowboys main reason for success was their O-line, and it just got better.

Re: Cowboys sign Collins

I feel like Alabama just came into Louisiana and signed away our blue chip prospect. It's like a punch in the gut.

Re: Cowboys sign Collins

Punch in the gut is right. But at least he didn't sign with Atlanta (which was reported to be one of the final 5 top choices in another thread).

I'm disgusted. But it's his life. There's no state income tax in TX I believe, which could have had some bearing.

Well, all is not lost. At least Tom Brady is going to be suspended! Draft picks are on the table! Even Kraft can't wheedle out of this one. <my opinion>
