The New England Patriots are close to re-signing 28-year-old wide receiver Austin Collie for the third time this season, reports ESPN.

ESPN Boston have been told by a league source that the New England Patriots want to add Collie to their ranks.

Veteran wide receiver Collie was released on December 27 because he was being plagued by injury.

However the Patriots are keen on signing Collie due to injuries to both Josh Boyce and Aaron Dobson.

Collie has appeared in seven games for the Patriots so far this season, as he originally signed for the Foxborough-based franchise at the beginning of October.

The Canadian could feature in the New England Patriots' AFC Divisional Round clash on Saturday January 11 if either Boyce or Dobson are unable to shake off their recent knocks.

Collie took part in New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick's training session on Thursday, wearing the number 10 jersey.
