The Dallas Cowboys rumored meeting with LSU offensive lineman La'el Collins has already taken place according to sources. Chad Sabadie, a sports anchor in New Orleans, has tweeted that sources have reported to him the Cowboys met with Collins at Jerry Jone's private residence. Going beyond just reporting that the meeting happened, Sabadie tweets that the Cowboys told Collins they are trying to assemble the greatest offensive line ever.

According to Sabadie, it wasn't just Jerry Jones who was pushing for Collins to sign, but that Tony Romo and the entire offensive line got involved.

If Collins were to come to Dallas, the guess would be either Ron Leary or Doug Free would be battling for their starting jobs. It's possible Collins could unseat Leary at left guard then kick out to right tackle in the future once Free is no longer manning the position. Stay tuned....
