Cincinnati Bengals ‘close’ to signing former Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle La’el Collins

CINCINNATI— The Bengals are close to reaching a deal for right tackle La’el Collins, according to All Bengals league sources.

The 28-year-old is in Cincinnati to visit the team. He met and spent a lot of time with Zac Taylor, Joe Burrow and other members of the organization on Friday.

“It’s close to the finish line,” a source said.

Bengals offensive line coach Frank Pollack coached Collins at Dallas for three seasons (2015-17).

“I had a great relationship with LC. I love him to death. He definitely fits the mold of a glass eater,” Pollack said Friday. “Look at his tape, it’s clearly evident. He’s naughty and he was a lot of fun to train. So we’ll see with all that.”
