The Cowboys waived offensive lineman La'el Collins with a post-June 1 designation, saving them $10 million in cap space. It doesn’t appear it will take Collins long to find a new home.

Collins is flying to Cincinnati tonight for a visit with the Bengals on Friday, a source tells PFT. He played for Bengals offensive line coach Frank Pollack for three seasons in Dallas.

The Bengals are seeking to upgrade their offensive line this offseason and already have signed Alex Cappa and Ted Karras.

The Cowboys signed Collins as an undrafted free agent in 2015, getting a steal in a player projected as a first-round choice. He played left guard his first season before switching to right tackle.

In seven seasons in Dallas, Collins played 74 games with 71 starts.

Collins also could draw interest from other teams, including the Patriots and the Dolphins, but the Bengals have acted quickly to try and sign Collins.

  1. Now the Bengals relative inactivity over the past couple days makes sense. They were waiting on Collins.

  2. Good news in the Natti tonight. No low-ball Bengals. Don’t let him leave without a signature.

  3. This is where bad franchise’s prove who they are… if he doesn’t sign with them even though he’s shown he clearly wants to… this is still the bungals. Remember.. this is the franchise that forced the NFL to create a salary floor along with the salary cap.. Mike Brown is the cheapest owner in sports history

  4. Good news. Pollack connection. LSU grad. Eats glass and Skyline Chili. Who Dey.

  5. People still saying bad franchise when they were just in the super bowl, and literally the only reason they lost is also the only thing they’ve improved this off season. Also stop saying eats glass. Stupid saying, frank pollack may be a great coach but that’s a dumb saying he has

    Sign Collins. Sign JC Tretter at Center. Draft defense.
    if they do that I’d prefer they draft the best available player. They would be in perfect position to do so

  7. I’m a bit concerned about the suspension last year and the reason for it. I hope they pass if he’s not a good fit.

  8. This guy has a history of problems and is the reason he was not drafted as he was ineligible for it.
