OT/OG Anthony Collins, Bengals

The Falcon’s offensive line was atrocious in 2013.  Matt Ryan was sacked 44 times, and could never stay upright behind a muddled pocket.  Four of the five spots on the line could feature a different player next season, and Atlanta could help themselves by signing someone who could compete at more than one.

Anthony Collins was solid in pass protection for Cincinnati last season, and would certainly win a starting tackle job on the Atlanta offensive line.  At 6’5″ and 315lbs, Collins completely shut down Julius Petters this season, and did so against most defensive ends that he faced.

With only 18 games started in his career, Collins would be getting his chance to become a feature OT, and at a relatively cheap price.
