CINCINNATI— Veteran right tackle La’el Collins spent more than 48 hours visiting the Bengals, but ultimately left Cincinnati without a contract.
The 28-year-old was a top target for the team in their quest to protect Joe Burrow. Collins is expected to visit another team before making a decision.
Why did talks fall apart?
Former Bengals great Willie Anderson said it had to do with contract structure.
They are still very much in the picture to land Collins, but the deal offered wasn’t enough to get him to sign on Saturday.
Check out Anderson’s tweet below.
