Cutting Collins would be a mistake IMO. He has value playing on the interiior and for depth. Mistake was made by the regime in assuming he could play LT but compounding that by making another hole on the overall roster is worse.
$6 mil a year for a guy better suited to be a versatile backup? How much dead money are we talking about?
$3 million. $3 million saved on the cap though. Re: alldayway...Collins has never played in the interior in the pros. He's played both tackles and as an extra TE in Cincy. Perhaps he did it in college (I have no idea), but people assume he could just slot in. The "assumed" he could play LT, because in fact, he actually played LT last year and performed well. I personally don't see him as a guard since I don't think he's shown himself to be nasty enough to handle the job inside.
As I am going to assume, as previously mentioned, that he will be cut within days of the season ending. Taking a bad player and making him a starter somewhere else just to save a few dollars does not make sense. Not enough dollars, not enough sense.
