  • Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Headed to Las Vegas

  • Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Solid in trenches in 2019

    Collins completed the 2019 season with 20 tackles (15 solo) including four sacks and a fumble recovery. A third-round pick in 2016, Collins has provided the Cowboys with a solid worker in the center of the defensive line over his four-year career. He's compiled 84 tackles including 14.5 sacks while only missing three games. Dallas has higher-priority free agents to worry about this offseason and a likely new defensive scheme under Mike McCarthy, so there's no guarantee the Cowboys will be interested in bringing back Collins even if he doesn't receive big offers from other teams looking to bolster their depth in the front seven.

    Collins has a sack in each of his last two games. Against the Broncos, Collins recorded his second sack of the season, a week after picking up his first QB takedown.

  • Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Looking quicker in camp

    Collins has been one of the standout players in training camp for the Cowboys, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. The DT only produced 19 tackles and three sacks last season through 13 games as he battled knee and foot injuries, but Collins is 100 percent healthy now and looking quicker and more disruptive off the line than before. His role in the defense won't make him a big IDP factor, but the more defensive attention Collins can draw up the middle, the more opportunities for sacks DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn will have off the edge.
