Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman La’el Collins went above and beyond for his mother this Christmas.
Collins, who signed a five-year, $90 million contract extension with the Cowboys during the offseason, used some of the $3.1 million he is making during the 2019 season to surprise his mother, Loyetta, with a new home in Baton Rouge, La., on Christmas Eve.
