La'el Collins Had Epic Message for Joe Burrow After Signing With Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals entered the offseason off a cinderella Super Bowl run with one clear-cut goal: re-tooling the offensive line. Now a week into free agency, the line takes on a completely new look and has the potential to be one of the better units in football thanks to the additions of center Ted Karras and right guard Alex Cappa.
The icing on the cake was bringing in tackle La'el Collins over the weekend. Considered a charismatic personality, Collins shared an epic message for his new quarterback Joe Burrow after the signing.

"Your new bodyguard is in town, no one's touching you," Collins told Burrow upon his arrival.
Collins joins the Bengals after six seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas released the highly-regarded 28-year-old tackle on Thursday in a cap-saving effort, and Cincinnati pounced on the opportunity.
NFL insiders praise Collins for his abilities as both a run-blocker and pass-blocker, citing injuries as the only real area of concern. The former Cowboy missed 2020 with a hip injury that required surgery but has three seasons of at least 15 starts under his belt.
Collins received a stellar 82.0 rating from PFF last year when he allowed just two sacks and eight penalties across 671 snaps played.
Burrow and his new offensive line have a lot to be excited about in 2022, including +2200 odds to win Super Bowl 57 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
