Cowboys Sign Third-Round DT Maliek Collins, Officially Lock up 2016 Draft Class


The Dallas Cowboys have officially signed third-round DT Maliek Collins to a four-year contract, according to Todd Archer.

The Cowboys have officially signed their entire 2016 draft class following this move.

Collins, unfortunately, suffered a broken foot a few months ago and is expected to miss 10-12 weeks. However, Collins is expected to be ready for training camp.

Collins, 21, was selected with the No. 67 overall pick by the Cowboys over a month ago. The Cowboys had to bolster their defensive line depth in the draft, and Collins gives them an intriguing prospect to develop in the coming years. However, we’ll have to see how much this injury sets him back in his rookie season.

According to, Collins receives a four-year contract worth $3,221,152 to go along with a signing bonus of $881,152.

During his three-year college career at Nebraska, Collins recorded 86 tackles, 21.5 tackles for a loss, eight sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense.
