The Dallas Cowboys are faced with a difficult decision. After starting right tackle La’el Collins of the Dallas Cowboys was suspended for five games in September, panic set in. It may have been a blessing in disguise because it ushered in Terence Steele, who has performed admirably in Collins’ absence. So much so that some fans are questioning whether Collins will reclaim his starting right tackle position when he returns. During an interview with the Dallas radio station 105. 3 the Fan, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted that Steele had an “argument” to keep his starting job, but he didn’t go so far as to say that Collins would automatically return to the lineup.
“I guess it’s okay to say an argument, a case, whatever,” Jones said on October 12. “He’s just played exceptionally well.” He’s proven to me that he has a long-term future in this game, especially with the Cowboys. So, in terms of performance, he’s been exceptional. “Now, that doesn’t make La’el Collins any less of a player.”
La’el Collins is a key contributor to the team. This simply provides what you hope for, namely, a young player ascending and providing depth and, if you will, an alternative. Everything is there. ”
