Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman La'el Collins said that he wants to stay at right tackle. Collins played the first two years of his career at left guard, and the Cowboys have thrown around the possibility of moving him back there, especially with the signing of Cameron Fleming. Collins said, "Right now I'm focused on playing tackle, that is where my mindset is." Ultimately, it won't be up to Collins, as the Cowboys likely didn't sign Fleming just as a depth piece.
Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman La'el Collins could move back to left guard for the 2018 season. Collins played right tackle in 2017, but wasn't very effective. With the Cowboys signing Cameron Fleming, Collins should have the opportunity to move back to the position where he was more effective. The Cowboys have made several signings to beef up and solidify their offensive line, but Collins should still have a spot as long as he performs well in the offseason.
Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle La'el Collins had $150,000 of his 2018 salary converted into a signing bonus. He will receive that money immediately, but the team will be able to spread the cap hit evenly across the next two seasons. The move gives the Cowboys a little bit of help with the salary cap. Collins is signed through the 2019 season.
