Anthony Collins weighing Bucs, Bengals, Panthers offers

Bengals free agent tackle Anthony Coillins was one of the many visitors to Tampa Bay, brought to town at a time when they could obscure the fact the Buccaneers were bailing on the expensive Darrelle Revis experiment.

But he has several offers to pick from, and could be getting close to a choice.

According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Collins is weighing offers from the Bucs and the Panthers in addition to the Bengals, and all three have “comparable money.”

While two of those make sense, it’s the first peep we’ve heard from the Panthers in free agency, other than to say goodbye to guys leaving or retiring.

Collins was good enough at left tackle to make the Bengals leave Pro Bowler Andrew Whitworth inside last year, so teams obviously think he has value.

    Come on Collins. You know you wanna stay home. Out of all three teams, Bengals still have the best chance of making post-season. Stay here buddy!

    Panthers (12-4) and Bengals (11-5) are playoff contenders at least vs Bucs (4-12)…

    Bucs are trying to take over their division with defense. Their getting smarter over there finally.

    I can’t understand all the desire for this guy. He couldn’t start for his first few years in the league (he started a little, but believe me he shouldn’t have been). He had a few good games when the Bengals decided to move Whit inside, but that seemed to be more of a product of Whit being such a big and forceful guard. After a few games opponents figured that out and it didn’t work at all.

    Whit moved inside after most of the guards went down. He ended up being the best guard on the team, and is still the best tackle on the team. The play of Collins isn’t why Whit was inside, it was because Collins didn’t have the ability to move inside like Whit did.

    PLEASE come to Panthers! We desperately need some help on the o-line. When Byron Bell (last seen playing the roll of “Precious” in the box office hit) is your second best lineman, you have issues. Just ink the deal and get over here
