DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) – The Dallas Cowboys finally have some good news to report out of Oxnard.
The club announced on Tuesday that they had agreed to a two-year $15.4 million extension with offensive lineman La’el Collins.
The deal keeps Collins in Dallas through 2019.
Collins went undrafted out of LSU in the 2015 NFL Draft after being connected to a murder investigation that he ultimately had nothing to do with.
At the time, sources told 105.3 The Fan’s Mike Fisher that the club signed him to a fully-guaranteed three-year, $1.65-million contract. So this new deal is a significant raise for Collins.
The 23-year-old had season-ending surgery on a torn ligament in his toe in October.
Collins appeared in 15 games over his first two seasons, starting 14 times.
