Patriots bring Austin Collie back for another shot

The Patriots are giving the Austin Collie experiment another chance.

The team announced they had re-signed the veteran wide receiver today for his second stint with the team this year. He was released in November after spending five weeks with the team, playing three games.

The 28-year-old wideout had a minor knee injury during his previous stay with the Patriots, during which he caught three passes. Of course, he had a major knee along with numerous concussions with the Colts, which led to the end of his run there.

Collie has bounced around through a series of workouts this year, with a number of teams willing to take a look. So far, the Patriots have been the only ones to put him back in a game.

    K Thomkins and ADobson are both hurt. They just need a body that knows the offense for a week or two

    Great receiver if he can stay healthy. At least he won’t have a QB who leads him into traffic to catch balls

    Pats could do way worse for a week.

    Rahavort, tell me again, how many concussions did Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne have combined in their careers? Don’t answer that, the answer is zero. Try again.

    indywilson40- You do know many concussions go unmentioned by the teams right? Some even by the players, especially a few years ago when Harrison played

    So this should include concussions sustained by Patriots receivers too right? Especially since BB has a history of forcing players to play through injury eg Ted Johnson

    I’m sure Marvin Harrison and Dallas Clark got their share of concussions because I recall Bill Polian crying to the NFL that the Patriots Def Backs and LB’s played too rough with them.

    (I left Reggie Wayne out – He is a tough guy’s tough guy and is the most underrated receiver in the last 20 years. Mixed it up in the blocking game. Could give a shot and take a shot)

    Mingyabro, Your point is beyond dumb. So I guess Peyton Manning led the league in concussions caused that went unreported? Smh
