Anthony Collins (born November 2, 1985 in Beaumont, Texas) is an American football offensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Bengals in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He played college football at Kansas and was a member of the 2008 Orange Bowl championship team.
Collins was at the residence of teammate Jerome Simpson when police searched Simpson's home. Both were also questioned by the police. No arrests have been made yet. Collins released the following statement through his attorney Robert Lotz after the investigation began:
"Unfortunately, I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, I do want to take this opportunity to let my fans, friends and family know that I had no part in the reported activities at Jerome’s home. I have done nothing wrong and I have not been charged with doing anything wrong. So far as I know, I am no longer a part of any investigation."
The prosecutor involved in the case has said Collins will not face any charges.
