Jamie Collins and the Patriots just can’t seem to quit one another.

The linebacker is expected to sign with New England for a fourth stint with the club, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.

Reiss adds that it’s currently unclear whether Collins will sign to the 53-man roster or the practice squad. But Collins will join the team in some capacity.

Collins last played for New England in 2021, appearing in 10 games with two starts. He recorded a sack, an interception, three passes defensed, and three tackles for loss.

Collins entered the league with the Patriots as a second-round pick in 2013. He was traded to the Browns in 2016 but re-signed with New England in 2019 after Cleveland released him. The linebacker went to rejoin Matt Patricia in Detroit in 2020, but Patricia was fired during the season. The Lions released Collins in Sept. 2021 and he went back to New England in early October.

New England had a free agent visit with Collins last month.

In 122 games with 104 starts, collins has 12 interceptions, 199 forced fumbles, 26.5 sacks, and 64 tackles for loss.

    Wow that’s a lot of forced fumbles! 😁who wouldn’t resign this guy?

    ———————-

    So far Cleveland and Detroit..

  2. I wonder if he’s going to use him in a specialized role. At least he knows what to do and can jump right in to see if he has anything left. His play doesn’t drop off until December, so maybe by playing him less, that won’t happen.

  3. Collins is a loose cannon. An athletic monster who makes a lot of huge plays, but doesn’t mind being caught out of position quite often.

    I definitely would consider having him back as a plus.

    The Pats are currently at the bottom, but they are a forming, tropical storm. Playoffs, or not, at the end of the year the Pats will be a hurricane that some teams are gonna be sorry they have to play.

  4. Mac Jones is a division 3 QB at best. Zappe is a junior college caliber QB. Me thinks the Patsys are e circling the drain.

  5. The Pats are currently at the bottom, and they will stay at the bottom until they find a QB.

  6. Too bad almost doesn’t count. They took AR and the Packers to overtime with a third string QB. But this isn’t horse-shoes. 1-3.

  7. This is what happens when you can’t draft talent. You get the players that are playing for a check and not playing to win.

  8. Keep the thumbs down coming Patsys fans. I love it. Striking a nerve is fun.

  9. Another example of how belichick cant draft right armchair expert’s, welcome home jc.

  10. Nobody’s striking any nerves. The thumbs down are for no nothing idiots embarrassing themselves.

  11. You’re not striking a nerve. You’re just one of many whose team got whooped for 20 years and now in order to make yourself feel better you pile on when they are down. Too many of you guys to keep track of these days, so we just thumb you down without even reading what you write.

  12. 199 forced fumbles in 122 games – this guy should already be in the hall of fame.

  13. And the legal definition of insanity is …. as the drafting present is crap for the LB’s on tap … so back to the past we go sadly expect much of the results to be the same.

    So what you’re saying is it’s ok to dish it out but you can’t take it? Got it.

    That is a typo. He has 19 forced fumbles and no he will not be in the HOF
