1. Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens do need offensive line help. Unfortunately, like Dallas, they face monetary issues this offseason that may prevent them from being able to sign Collins. Baltimore has Patrick Mekari and Ja’Wuan James can technically play right tackle but the team will likely need to address the offensive line regardless. Offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva also just announced his retirement.
Ravens GM Eric DeCosta told the media in February that improving the offensive line is a clear “point of emphasis” before 2022. Here is a direct quote from the GM:
"“For us to be the very best offense we can be, we’ve got to have a strong, commanding offensive line that can control people at the point of attack. I think we’ll probably add two guys, possibly, potentially. If the right player becomes available, we’ll probably make a move”"
Is Collins that guy? The Ravens were the second-worst in the league in the regular season in terms of sacks allowed, so the GM’s comments are unsurprising. However, Collins’ lack of durability could be a huge red flag for Baltimore. Injuries were a huge issue for the team as a whole in 2021. Over ten linemen played at some point for Baltimore last season. Ronnie Stanley, one of the best on the team and in the league, only played in one game before sustaining a season-ending ankle injury.
The reality is that Collins is a top talent. Dallas is likely willing to trade him because of the off-the-field issues and the fact that they could save money and get a lot in return. If he can stay on the field, teams will be glad to have him.
