Jamie Collins is headed for a third stint with the New England Patriots, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday.

The 31-year-old linebacker was released by the Detroit Lions last week. According to numerous reports Tuesday, he was working to finalize a deal with the Patriots. Collins reportedly was due to go to New England on Wednesday for a physical.

Collins was the Patriots’ second-round draft pick in 2013 out of Southern Miss, and he helped New England win the Super Bowl after the 2014 season, then received his lone Pro Bowl selection in 2015.

He was dealt to the Browns during the 2016 season and remained in Cleveland through 2018.

Collins was back in New England for the 2019 season. He was with the Lions last year, starting 14 games, and this year, starting twice. Detroit coach Dan Campbell admitted that the club attempted to trade him but couldn’t find a taker before releasing him.

The 31-year-old veteran has 25.5 sacks, 19 forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries, 11 interceptions and 686 tackles in 112 career games, including 102 starts.

The Patriots are off to a 1-3 start after a 19-17 loss Sunday night to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former New England quarterback Tom Brady.
