Undrafted rookie free agent La’el Collins has signed a three year, fully guaranteed contract with the Dallas Cowboys, the team announced Thursday. Collins, who is arguably the most sought after rookie free agent in draft history, went undrafted amid speculation in his involvement in the murder of his ex-girlfriend.
His signing bonus has been a reported $21,000, but for him, it obviously came down to opportunity more than money.
Collins met with Baton Rouge police on Monday in an attempt to clear his name. His signing obviously signals teams are now comfortable with his situation.
Projected as a first round pick, he could push left guard Ronald Leary for the a starting spot.
