    Four years 36 Mil with 24 guaranteed? After two years he could be cut with very little cap hit. He's not a bargain bin item, but I don't see that as being a monster contract for a good player. Collins signed a 2 year deal for 15.4M. Not even 3 million less over the same time period.

    Notice I said "at the time".

    We didn't have the cap room we have today, plus they knew they had to find money for numerous other guys needing contract extensions, including Zach Martin.

    Leary also has the issue with the knee.

    Hindsight being 20/20, sure I'd rather have him (Leary) at LG and Connor Williams now at RT instead of Lael Collins. Collins is the worst starting OL on the team and another player that continues to regress on almost a weekly basis.
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys’ doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice

    I agree with this. Collins needs to be moved back to guard. I know Doug Free can have an occasional burp now and then, but he played RT better than Collins.

    Collins wasn't any good at LG either though. When he got hurt and was replaced by Leary, the OL improved by leaps and bounds over night.

    Collins appears to be very gifted physically, but might have a ten cent head and certainly appears to me to be someone that would benefit from HARD coaching, not coach soft ball Garrett.

    Next season when Fredrick is back what are the chances that Looney gets a chance to start at LG and Williams and Collins battle it out for RT? Collins seems like he might be best suited as the backup G/T and Looney has earned a chance to start.

    If Jerry is GM I'd say zero.

    Probably zero.
