9:52pm: Collins will visit with the Cowboys, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com (on Twitter).
7:43pm: The results of La’el Collins‘ paternity test show that he is not the father of his now deceased ex-girlfriend’s child, reps for the tackle tell Josina Anderson of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Collins also passed a polygraph test administered by an independent investigator in connection with the case, Anderson hears.
Of course, Collins was still known to have a relationship with Brittney Mills, the slain pregnant woman, and this news alone will probably not exonerate him of wrongdoing with law enforcement or with potentially interested NFL teams.
Meanwhile, a league insider told Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel (on Twitter) that teams are scared about Collins’ situation because he supposedly made threatening texts to the woman who was murdered. Kelly followed that tweet up (link) by saying that Collins should be considered innocent until proven guilty of any wrongdoing.
