FOXBORO — With a foot problem plaguing Aaron Dobson, the Patriots have brought back a somewhat familiar face for depth in the receiving corps.

The Patriots Thursday re-signed Austin Collie. The 28-year-old was originally signed by the Patriots on Oct. 3 and then released on Nov. 5. Collie played in four games and was released during the bye week. He caught three passes for 34 yards, including two key receptions against the Saints in the last-minute 30-27 win on Oct. 13.

Collie is in his fifth NFL season after spending four seasons with Indianapolis (2009-12). The 6-foot, 204-pounder originally entered the NFL as a fourth-round draft pick (127th overall) of the Colts out of Brigham Young in 2009. 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.

Collie has played in 46 NFL games with 17 starts and has registered 176 receptions for 1,879 yards and 16 touchdowns. He played in four games with one start for the Patriots and registered three receptions for 34 yards.
