    Getting out of massive child support was potentially a motive?

    Can't Jerry just extend him after 1 season and make his yearly salary comparable to a top 10 draft pick?

    Motive. Killing someone who could've tapped your pocket for child support just as you're coming into big money is motive. Not his child, therefore no motive to kill. Also, he's said to have an iron clad alibi, therefore no opportunity either.

    I think we won't throw as much money to him as others will. He also doesn't want to play guard like most of us would like

    Nobody can offer a lot. UDFAs are limited.

    Collins would be best inside. His real strength is when he's taking on someone in front of him and it's a power struggle. He wins that every time. In space, he's actually not that good. He moves a bit sluggish so I'm not sure he'll handle speed rushers that well. If you tell him to simply push someone off their position, that's where he'll excel.

    You don't tell him that. You offer up every chance to win that spot. If it doesn't work out you move him inside.

    What would we do with Leary if Collins was signed? Good backup or trade bait?

    I don't disagree. But I think they have to convince him that being a star LG in Dallas is infinitely more valuable than being a star RT in San Diego or Miami. He'd have a chance to play RT when Free is gone. Or if Free is hurt during the season potentially even.

    Certainly. But if performed well as a LG for one year in Dallas, he'd make it all back and then some.

    Depends... did he know he wasn't the father at the time?

    He isn't dumb... he knows we have a lot invested in Free and that Free probably isn't cut out to be an OG

    Work your magic, Jerry. Not often does he not get a player that he sets his sights on.
