The Patriots finally signed a wide receiver with experience, even if he’s as injury plagued as some of their others.
According to Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com, the Patriots have signed former Colts Austin Collie.
The Patriots were among the many teams that brought Collie in for a look this offseason, and he spent some time in training camp with the 49ers.
He’s been productive when well, but has missed 22 games the last three seasons because of concussions and a ruptured patellar tendon.
He gives them some insurance, at a time when four of their six wideouts are on the injury report.
