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.
