According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, the New England Patriots may still sign Austin Collie, or potentially someone like Miles Austin.

The Pats have addressed the wide receiver position this offseason, as they have re-signed Julian Edelman, and added Brandon LaFell. If Collie or Austin were brought in, I don’t think they would play a huge role in Tom Brady‘s offense. Instead, they could serve as solid depth players, and as Howe said, just provide some competition in training camp.

Collie was with New England for seven games in 2013, catching six balls for 63 yards in the regular season. He came up big in the AFC Championship game as well, racking up four receptions for 57 total yards.

Miles Austin struggled with injuries last year, and it resulted in a down year in terms of production. Austin managed only 24 catches, 244 yards, and zero touchdowns.
