Collins, 32, originally was selected by the Patriots in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent his first three-and-a-half seasons in New England before being traded to the Cleveland Browns in 2016.

After two years in Cleveland, Collins rejoined the Patriots for the 2019 campaign. The two-time Super Bowl champion went on to play for the Detroit Lions for one-and-a-half seasons before returning to New England halfway through the 2021 season.

Last year with the Patriots, Collins tallied one sack, one interception and 20 tackles (three for a loss) in 10 games. He has notched 26.5 sacks and 12 interceptions during his nine-year NFL career.
