Patriots add Collie to wide receiver corps

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have signed four-year veteran Austin Collie to add experience to their young wide receiver corps.

They also placed defensive tackle Vince Wilfork on injured reserve on Thursday and released tight end Zach Sudfeld, a rookie free agent who struggled after an impressive preseason.

Collie spent his first four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts before signing as a free agent with San Francisco last Aug. 2. He had been a free agent since the 49ers released him Aug. 31.

He was a productive wide receiver out of the slot in his first three seasons but had at least three concussions since November 2010 and left another game with concussion-like symptoms. He missed three games early last season because of a concussion and played in just one game before rupturing the patellar tendon in his right knee.
