Jeff Fisher has not ruled out La’el Collins
Former LSU offensive tackle La’el Collins was once considered a first round prospect and potentially someone the Rams may target to help solidify their offensive live.
Collins went undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft after it was revealed that the Louisiana police wanted to speak to him about a shooting death of a pregnant woman in Baton Rouge. That woman was believed to be the ex-girlfriend of Collins.
Collins is not believed to be a suspect in the woman’s death, but this situation has scared off the Rams despite their holes on the offensive line.
Coach Jeff Fisher spoke to ESPN and said it was never an option that they would draft him.
"That’s correct and I think most people did it," Fisher said. "Extraordinary circumstances. They’re very, very difficult and we just have to wait now for the legal process to work itself out."
The idea of signing Collins as an undrafted free agent has to be intriguing to Fisher, and while he is not closing the door on Collins, he is certainly in no rush to sign him either.
"I think across the board I think everybody had interest in him because he was a good college football player, but I think now we just have to let things unfold and see what happens," Fisher said. "It’s very, very unfortunate, whether he was involved or not in the incident. Unfortunately, it’s one of those things that happened that’s very, very unfortunate."
