Collins had met with police in Baton Rouge, La., on Monday as they investigate the murder of Collins' ex-girlfriend. Police say that Collins was fully cooperative with investigators when he met with them and is still not considered a suspect in the case.
Police have not named any suspects in the death of 29-year-old Brittney Mills, who was pregnant when she was found dead on April 24.
Collins, a projected first-round pick, was not selected in last weekend's NFL draft as questions about the investigation hung over him. Collins is now an undrafted free agent. He was a first-team All-SEC and second-team AP All-America selection in 2014.
“La’el is going to start making efforts to get his football career back on track,” Collins' attorney, Jim Boren, said. ”We’re moving on.”
