NFL Free Agency: OT La'el Collins signs with Cincinnati Bengals – LSU Wire

After an eventful few weeks, recently released offensive tackle La’el Collins finally knows where he’s heading next.
On Sunday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garofolo reported that Collins will be signing a deal with the Super Bowl runner-up Cincinnati Bengals. Collins spent the weekend visiting with the team, and though he was planning on taking several other visits, he saw enough to ink a deal with the Bengals.
Collins spent the last seven seasons as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, who released him on Thursday with three years remaining on his deal to save cap space. The terms of his new contract have not yet been revealed.
The #Bengals are finalizing an agreement with OT La’el Collins, sources tell me and @RapSheet. He was supposed to leave town today for another visit but Cincy didn’t let him go.

He has started 71 of the 74 games he appeared in since the Cowboys picked him up as an undrafted free agent back in 2015. He was originally considered a top prospect and likely first-round pick, but his stock dropped after he spoke with police in Louisiana in relation to a crime, though he was not considered a suspect.
Collins played at LSU from 2011-14, earning First Team All-SEC and Second Team All-American selections as a senior in 2014. He also won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the top offensive lineman in the SEC.
Now, Collins will join up with fellow LSU products Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase in Cincinnati.
