The New England Patriots are expected to bring back a familiar face. OLB Jamie Collins is expected to sign with the team this week according to Patriots beat reporter Mike Reiss.
Reiss notes that it’s not yet clear if the Patriots will sign Collins to the active roster or to the practice squad. Collins, who turns 33 later this month, should be able to provide some rotational veteran help once incorporated into the Patriots’ lineup.
Collins has had great success in the Patriots defensive system but his skills have never been able to translate elsewhere.
Jamie Collins and the Patriots are expected to agree on a deal, per @MikeReiss
