La'el Collins Praises Joe Burrow: 'One of the Coolest Guys You'll Ever Meet

The newest Bengals offensive lineman is a big fan of the quarterback.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals signed La'el Collins on Sunday in hopes of fortifying the offensive line in their quest to protect Joe Burrow. 

The veteran right tackle met with Burrow multiple times during the free agent process. Collins, 28, is a few years older than Burrow, but both guys went to LSU. 

"One of the coolest guys you'll ever meet. Down to earth and a guy I just want to protect without a doubt," Collins told Geoff Hobson of "Just visualizing that moment (in 2020) of winning that championship and knowing how he felt after that game and (Ja'Marr) Chase and all those guys felt to being able to bring that here, I think we've got something special and we could get it done."

Collins is the latest Tiger to join the Bengals' roster. Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase made quite an impression last season. Collins is hoping to have a similar impact.
