Jamie Collins signs with Patriots

Jamie Collins Patriots

Linebacker Jamie Collins will re-join the New England Patriots. After being released by the Detroit Lions, Collins will be a Patriot for the third time in his career since being drafted in 2013.

Pro Football Focus’ Doug Kyed reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.

Signing Collins was the Patriots’ second defensive move of the day after intending to release, then eventually trading, star cornerback Stephon Gilmore. The Carolina Panthers traded a sixth round pick for Gilmore on Tuesday.

The Patriots drafted Collins in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Southern Mississippi. He spent 2013-2016 in New England before being traded to Cleveland. After being released by the Browns, Collins re-signed with the Patriots for one year in 2019.

Detroit signed him on a three-year, $30 million contract, but lasted just over a season there. The Lions did not have enough trade interest for Collins, which led to him being cut. Now the Patriots, at 1-3, are rolling the dice on him for a third separate time.
