Ahead of meeting with La'el Collins, Anthony Johnson posts picture from plane
BATON ROUGE - Anthony Johnson broke the Internet - as the kids say these days - when he posted a picture of himself and Mike Pouncey on an airplane, likely headed to Baton Rouge.
The flight from the Miami area was set to land in Baton Rouge shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday. Earlier in the day, Miami ABC affiliate WPLG reported the Dolphins were interested in Collins. The team reportedly is sending a plane with Johnson, Pouncey, Jarvis Landry and Kelvin Sheppard to pitch the Dolphins to Collins.
It seems like everyone but La'el Collins agent is talking about potential meetings with NFL teams a day after Collins met with Baton Rouge Police to discuss what he knows about a woman who was found murdered nearly two weeks ago. Collins, who was expected to be a top pick in last week's NFL draft, went undrafted after he was connected to the murder investigation of Brittney Mills.
Following a meeting with police Monday, Collins met with the Buffalo Bills.
Police have maintained Collins is not a suspect in the case.
Earlier Tuesday, Collins' agent tried to refute rumors that Collins was meeting with NFL teams.
Sports Director Michael Cauble Tweeted, Collins has been approached by the Bucs, Bears, Lions and Giants.
Johnson's Instagram picture had hundreds of comments, many from apparent Dolphins fans who seemed excited about the idea of Collins joining the team.
