The Dallas Cowboys and former LSU offensive tackle La'el Collins have agreed on a five-year extension with $50 million in "new money," according to

The team agreed to terms on a five-year extension with offensive tackle La'el Collins, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported, per sources informed of the pact. Garafolo adds that the pact includes $50 million in "new money." The first two years are fully guaranteed, and Collins receives $35 million in total guarantees.

Similar to the Jaylon Smith deal, the Cowboys had a talented player land in their laps for non-playing reasons, and the team locked them down with a pay raise sooner than required.

Collins, who was projected to be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, fell completely out of the draft after he was wanted for questioning in the murder of a former girlfriend in the days leading up to the selection process. Collins was ultimately ruled out as a suspect, but the situation cost him potentially millions of dollars by falling all the way out of the draft.

Should have been a Saint. Dumbest non-pick by the Saints - ever.
