Chiefs GM John Dorsey: ‘Too many uncertainties’ surrounding La’el Collins

Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said Monday that the Chiefs don’t have enough information on the situation to pursue Louisiana State offensive lineman La’el Collins, a top prospect who went undrafted this past weekend after it was revealed he was wanted for questioning, but is not a suspect, in the death of a 29-year old woman.

“That’s an ongoing situation,” Dorsey said. “As I sit here in terms of talking, I think he does have some talent to play the game of football but there are too many uncertainties right now. Right now I will just pass until I get some more clarity because I like to get all my facts before I make decisions.”

Collins, who is listed ta 6 feet 4 and 305 pounds, was widely regarded as a top-50 talent before concerns emerged last week after the situation was reported first by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
