Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website wouldn't rule out the Bengals signing free agent OT Anthony Collins after the draft.
Collins spent the first six years of his career in Cincinnati before signing a big free-agent deal with the Bucs last offseason only to bottom out and get cut one year into the contract. Since being released on March 10, Collins, 29, hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest. It's pretty surprising after he proved to be a quality spot starter for the Bengals in 2013. He'll cost close to the minimum. Tue, Apr 14, 2015 09:39:00 PM

Buccaneers released OT Anthony Collins.

The five-year, $30 million deal Collins signed with the Bucs last offseason was doomed from the start. Collins didn't even play in Tampa Bay's final four games. Fortunately for the Buccaneers, pulling the plug on Collins will only cost them $3 million in dead money while saving $3 million against the cap. Demar Dotson is a candidate to fill the hole left by Collins at left tackle.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bucs will cut OT Anthony Collins if they can't trade him.

Collins signed a five-year, $30M deal one year ago that included $15M guaranteed. But all the cash was up front, so the Bucs can move on from Collins and only leave $3M of dead money behind. We wouldn't expect GM Jason Licht to be able to swing a trade.

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman expects the Bucs to release LT Anthony Collins.

Collins signed a five-year, $30 million contract last offseason that included $15 million guaranteed. But under first-year GM Jason Licht, the Bucs implemented a pay-as-you-go mindset. Tampa Bay handed out no signing bonuses, allowing them to cut bait fairly easily with players who don't produce. A stud in spot starts with the Bengals in 2013, Collins was bad with the Bucs. He was Pro Football Focus' 71st tackle in terms of pass blocking out of 84 qualifiers.
Sun, Jan 11, 2015 10:37:00 AM

Bucs LT Anthony Collins (elbow) has been downgraded to out for Week 14.

Collins has struggled in pass protection and run blocking, so it's not a major downgrade. The Bucs are expected to start Oniel Cousins against Lions.

Bucs signed LT Anthony Collins to a five-year, $30 million contract.

The deal includes $15 million guaranteed. Collins was our No. 4 tackle in free agency, behind only Eugene Monroe, Jared Veldheer and Branden Albert. The former Bengal was a dominant pass blocker last season, giving up zero sacks, one quarterback hit and 12 quarterback hurries even though Andy Dalton attempted 586 passes. Collins is an upgrade on oft-overweight Donald Penn, who is now firmly on the trade block. The Raiders should be on the phone.

The Tampa Bay Times reports free agent LT Anthony Collins will choose between the Bucs, Bengals, and Panthers.

Per Bucs beat writer Greg Auman, all three clubs have offered Collins "comparable money." Collins would be a huge get for Carolina, which recently lost LT Jordan Gross to retirement. Collins visited Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 11:18:00 PM

Free agent OT Anthony Collins will visit the Bucs.

The Bucs are viewed as the heavy favorites to sign the former Bengal, so it's quite possible he doesn't leave Tampa. With the tackle market gutted in the first hour of free agency, Collins is the top option remaining.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 06:24:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun reports the Buccaneers are expected to sign free agent OT Anthony Collins "provided that he doesn't re-sign with the Bengals."

Per the report, Tampa would pay Collins $6.5 million to $7 million per year. The Bengals remain very much in play, as the Buccaneers are also negotiating with Rodger Saffold. If the Bucs signed Collins, it's quite possible they'd release LT Donald Penn. Collins is a left tackle. Saffold is a guard/right tackle.
Sun, Mar 9, 2014 08:16:00 PM

The Washington Post reports the Redskins have shown interest in free agent OT Anthony Collins.

Collins, 28, might not get paid like Branden Albert or Eugene Monroe, but he's every bit as good in pass protection. The Bengals badly want to re-sign him, but he seems intent on testing the open market. Collins has also been linked to the Dolphins and Panthers in recent weeks. Arizona could also show interest.
Sun, Mar 9, 2014 09:58:00 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Bengals are working on a deal with free agent LT Anthony Collins.

Collins remains likely to test the market, but the Bengals are "hoping" to re-sign him before the start of free agency. The 28-year-old is an excellent pass protector, and has already drawn interest from multiple teams. Re-signing Collins would allow Cincinnati to keep Andrew Whitworth at left guard.
Fri, Mar 7, 2014 05:21:00 PM

The Bengals are interested in re-signing free agent LT Anthony Collins, but are willing to let him test the market.

Collins was stellar in pass protection last season, and re-signing him would allow the Bengals to keep OL Andrew Whitworth at left guard. Cincinnati is prepared to let Collins walk, however, if another team is willing to overpay. The best-case scenario for the Bengals is Collins finds a soft market and returns at a discounted price. Collins is our No. 5 free-agent offensive tackle.
Mon, Feb 10, 2014 09:05:00 PM

The Bengals would like to re-sign free agent OT Anthony Collins.

Collins, 28, started the final six games, including the playoff loss to the Chargers, at left tackle and was stellar in pass protection. It allowed Pro Bowl LT Andrew Whitworth to kick inside to left guard where he dominated physically. Collins checks in as our No. 5 free-agent offensive tackle, behind Jordan Gross.

Bengals re-signed OT Anthony Collins.

Collins, 26, will return as the Bengals' "swing" tackle behind LT Andrew Whitworth and RT Andre Smith. Young with a solid track record in 18 career starts, Collins has encountered work ethic and character red flags since coming out of Kansas in 2008. His signing is still a strong one for the Bengals.
Fri, Mar 23, 2012 02:04:00 PM

Coach Marvin Lewis has cleared OT Anthony Collins of any wrongdoing in the pot bust at Jerome Simpson's house.

"The only thing I know is that Anthony Collins wasn't involved in anything at all," Lewis said. "The other thing (the investigation of Simpson), I'm not allowed to comment about anything so we'll just move forward and get ready to play football." Collins just happened to be at Simpson's house at the time of the delivery.
