The Dallas Cowboys are parting ways with a fixture of their offensive line, releasing veteran tackle La’el Collins on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

Such a decision will be designated as a post-June 1 cut, allowing Dallas to save $10 million in cap space. Once the move is official, he will become a free agent. The decision to release him was a no-brainer as opposed to trading him away, which would have saved the team just $1.3 million.

The LSU product was signed through the 2024 season after inking a five-year, $50 million deal just two years ago.

The 28-year-old had spent all six of his professional seasons in Dallas, starting 71 of 74 games during his stay while contributing protection for the NFL’s top offense in 2021 headlined by Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.
