The New England Patriots released wide receiver Austin Collie, the team announced Friday.
Collie was originally signed by the Patriots on Oct. 3, then released on Nov. 5. He was re-signed on Dec. 5 when injuries left the Patriots short at the wide receiver position.
Collie played in seven games for the Patriots, including one start. He had six receptions for 63 yards this season.
Collie, 28, is in his fifth NFL season after spending four seasons with Indianapolis.
He was signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 2, 2013, but was released by the 49ers on Aug. 31.
