It always amazes me how little some here actually listen. Collins is not and I repeat NOT a RT. This much had already been said by our own coaching staff. The draft guys when he was drafted etc. I don't know why people refuse to listen lol

The whole Cooper deal was pretty smart. They knew they would lose Leary so they signed Cooper late to get a look at him. Because he ended the season as a Cowboy, he doesn't count against the comp picks.

They're grasping at straws.

It also amazes me that they are relying on a player who was traded and then cut twice by 2 Oline needy teams in the same year to take a starting spot on the line.

many of us were hoping collins would be tried at rt.
yet for 2 years, that was not done.
the question is why and is it really collins is much better at guard.
They liked Free, that's why. Free was a good run blocker and in 2015 wasn't bad against the pass. He regressed in pass protection in 2016, but was still a solid run guy. With him gone that changes everything.

I think guard is probably his best position, but Collins and either Cooper/draft pick could be a better duo than Collins and Green/Cleary

i have no idea.
i dont understand why the FO did not even try collins at RT if he could be competent.
would they not at least test that in case of an injury to free.
what has happened makes no sense.
if they now say collins will be the rt, what in the world were they thinking before when we had leary AND collins.
free was clearly the 6th best ol on the team.

Dude was really, really disappointing here in Arizona. Has the talent, not sure he really wants to play football.

Said it before and say it again, no such thing as a bad 1-year deal. If it was a motivation issue, maybe him seeing this as his chance to cash in gives him the motivation he needs. He couldn't ask for a better surrounding cast.

Yes, it is because Collins is much better at guard... or at least the team thinks so.

They practiced him at tackle some as a rookie and apparently didn't like what they saw.

Now do the right thing and give Collins every chance to be your RT.

That only could happen if Cooper actually can play. We can't assume he's capable of starting just because he's a former first-round pick. Right now, he joins Green on the can't stay healthy list.

Don't get me wrong, I like the signing because he has some talent, but I don't go into this expecting much.
