One way or another, La'el Collins is on the way out of Dallas.

Following up on a report that the Cowboys want to trade Collins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Cowboys have given Collins and his agent permission to reach out to potential trade partners, and that if no trade partner can be found, Collins is likely to be cut.

The 28-year-old Collins, who has played his entire career with the Cowboys, is set to count $15.25 million against the Cowboys’ salary cap this season.

Last year Collins played in 12 games, starting 10, but the Cowboys didn’t miss him much when he was out of the lineup, and it’s unsurprising that they’re not sure he’s worth the cap space they’re devoting to him.

  1. Why would any team make a trade for this guy when it’s obvious the Cowboys are desperate for cash and he’s going to be released anyway?

  2. I can see the Cincinnati Bengals picking up La’el Collins after the Dallas Cowboys cut him. That would immediately bolster their anemic offensive line. Get Joe Burrow some quality protection.

  3. AZ should look into trading for Collins as he’d be a massive upgrade at RT and wouldn’t cost much in terms of draft capital being they plan on cutting him anyway. Dallas will be happy to get anything for him at this point if the plans to cut him anyway. A 6th for 7th round pick beats nothing in return.

  4. You make the trades to Guarantee his services. Open market being cut makes him Free to every team! Cooper is still a number one wr and Collins is still a number one tackle.
    Miami Cincinnati Browns etc…. Any team in need and has the cap space should be all in on these two. Both still young solid and proven.
