La'El Collins may be in play after all

Collins plans to sign, once he's cleared

 

Collins intends to meet with police on Monday for questioning in connection with a murder case that now involves two deaths — a 29-year-old woman and her infant child.  Collins is not a suspect in the case, but because he has not been cleared, no one could touch him in the draft.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Collins plans to sign with a team after he is cleared.

Making Collins less attractive in the draft was a vow to sit out the year and re-enter the draft in 2016, if he were drafted this year.  Ultimately, that may have been a ploy aimed at ensuring he wasn’t drafted at all.

Ultimately, Collins can salvage the early portion of his career by signing the standard three-year deal as an undrafted rookie.  While he’d be eligible for restricted free agency after three years, the numbers suggest that he’ll do fairly well, given the current amount and the historic growth of the restricted free agency tenders.

If it actually was a ploy, it was a stupid one.

 

Regardless, if he is actually cleared in the investigation, he's an option.

Have to think we'd be a targeted landing spot.

He has to be a starter almost right away to ensure a big payday after 3 years. This means he's going to want to go to a team that has a desperate need for a LT.

Furthermore, one would assume he's going to want a LT needy team that doesn't have many holes, that is missing only a few pieces to going all the way, to keep him in the spotlight and help him shine.

Finally, he'd be playing next to a friend, Turner.

Is there a better team that fits the bill than us?

he'll get signed by a team before the investigation is over.

 

high reward/low risk

 

don't know why we wouldn't take a flier on him. innocent until proven guilty.

He can't just "get signed" he has to agree to it. He's not signing anywhere until this issue is cleared up completely.

Yeah looks like the NFL blacklisted until he is cleared.
