La'el Collins, Cowboys reportedly agree to contract

Dallas continues to add to their offensive line.

Glenn Andrews-USA TODAY Sports

According to a report from Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Dallas Cowboys have signed highly-coveted undrafted free agent offensive lineman La'el Collins.

The Philadelphia Eagles, who are in needed of offensive line help, were one of the teams rumored to be interest in Collins. They also showed interest leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft. Not only did the team have him in for a pre-draft visit but they also worked him out privately. Kelly personally attended LSU's pro day as well.

Seeing him sign with a division rival instead certainly can't be fun for the Birds. Especially when the Cowboys already had a pretty strong offensive line group to begin with.

Collins was expected to be a first round pick before a criminal investigation derailed his draft plans. Collins was wanted for police questioning regarding the death of a young woman and her pregnant child. He was never actually considered a suspect and has since been cleared.

The Eagles and Cowboys will play twice in 2015 with the first meeting set to take place in Philadelphia in Week 2.
