A league source told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter that former Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Collins agreed to a five-year deal worth $30 million, $15 million guaranteed, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday.
The six-foot, five-inch linemen has been a pivotal reserve player in Cincinnati for his entire six-year career. He started a total of 25 games in that span.
Last season, Collins played in 15 games, starting six (both career highs).
Earlier in the week, Cincinnati released starting lineman Kyle Cook and re-signed Mike Pollak raising speculation that the Bengals would dish out money to keep Collins for a few more seasons, but clearly the team decided to go in another direction.Tags: Adam Schefter, Anthony Collins, Cincinnati, Cincinnati Bengals, Football, Kyle Cook, Mike Pollak, NFL
