Ex-Colts WR Austin Collie has retired from the CFL's BC Lions.
Collie is 30, but suffered numerous concussions in the NFL with the Colts before it seemed every team refused to sign him because of the health concerns. He signed on in the CFL in January 2015 and posted a 43-439-7 line up north in his lone season. Collie made his hay with Peyton Manning and the Colts from 2009-2012, but also had short stints with the 49ers and Patriots. Apr 8 - 9:45 AM

Former Colts WR Austin Collie has agreed to terms with the CFL's BC Lions.

Collie has been out of the NFL since 2013 and hadn't had a real role since 2011, thanks in large part to multiple concussions and a knee injury. Now 29 years old, he's settling for a job in the minors. Collie was born in Hamilton, giving him "national" status for the Lions.

Free agent Austin Collie visited the Redskins.

Finally healthy, Collie appeared in seven games for the Patriots last season, catching six regular-season passes. Collie also grabbed four balls for 57 yards in the AFC Championship Game. Collie is not the player he was before head and knee injuries derailed his career, but going on 29, he still knows how to get open.

Austin Collie caught four balls for 57 yards in the Patriots' AFC Championship game loss to Denver.

Collie was targeted on the Patriots' third play from scrimmage, but the pass was batted away by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. His playing time spiked by Aaron Dobson's foot woes, Collie was mixed in on three- and four-wide sets. He had a chance at a huge late first-half reception, but Tom Brady's throw was high and wide, and well off the mark. Collie did pick up two first-down catches in the third quarter, good for gains of 12 and 7, and a late 20-yard grab. Still attempting to revive his career after multiple early concussions, Collie turned 28 in November and is entering free agency. The Patriots would be smart to bring him back in a reserve role, because he knows how to get open.

Patriots re-signed WR Austin Collie.

Collie continues to do the roster dance as Aaron Dobson (foot) and Josh Boyce (ankle) miss practice. During the regular season, Collie caught six passes for 63 yards in seven appearances with New England.

Patriots waived WR Austin Collie.

Collie has yo-yoed on and off New England's roster throughout the year, catching six balls for 63 yards over the course of seven games. The Pats will likely keep him on speed dial into the playoffs, but they are getting healthier at receiver now and have less use for Collie's services.

Patriots re-signed WR Austin Collie.

Collie spent a month with the Patriots earlier this season, catching three passes in four games before going down with a knee injury in Week 9. Now he's back as depth with Aaron Dobson (foot) and Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) in doubt for Sunday's game against the Browns. If active, Collie would battle Josh Boyce for scraps behind Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. There's no reason for fantasy owners to make an add.

Patriots released WR Austin Collie.

The injury-prone wideout tweaked his knee in Sunday's win, but it's unclear if that's why he's been cut loose. Collie caught just three passes in four games as a Pat, and has only four grabs since the end of the 2011 season. The vast majority of Collie's once prodigious upside has vanished. He's near the end of the line.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 01:10:00 PM

Austin Collie left Sunday's Week 9 game against the Steelers with a knee injury and will not return.

Collie was active ahead of Kenbrell Thompkins, but didn't have any catches or targets.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 06:25:00 PM

Austin Collie had no catches in Week 8 despite playing on 33-of-65 snaps.

Despite the substantial playing time, Collie had no targets. But over the last two weeks, he's played on 41.6 percent of the snaps with Tom Brady. Anyone getting that kind of usage in this offense should be on watch lists.

Austin Collie caught one pass for 10 yards in New England's Week 7 loss to the Jets.

Collie now has three catches for 34 yards in two games as a Patriot. He's not in the WR5 conversation.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 06:14:00 PM

Austin Collie caught two passes for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Saints.

Collie appears to have leap-frogged Josh Boyce (healthy scratch) on the depth chart. He only got on the field after Danny Amendola left with a head injury, but made the most of his chances by converting a tough catch on the game-winning drive. It's great to see Collie healthy and playing football again, but he's going to be behind Julian Edelman, Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson for now.
Sun, Oct 13, 2013 08:13:00 PM

Austin Collie was a healthy scratch in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Bengals.

As expected. Collie was signed by the Pats last week as insurance with Danny Amendola (groin), Aaron Dobson (neck) all Kenbrell Thompkins (shoulder) banged up. The trio ended up suiting up, so Collie sat.

Patriots signed WR Austin Collie.

Danny Amendola (groin), Aaron Dobson (neck), Kenbrell Thompkins (shoulder) and Matt Slater (wrist) were all on the injury report Wednesday. Collie is being added to the roster as depth, not a savior for the receiving corps. In fact, it's hard to see him getting many snaps -- or even being active -- with Amendola and Julian Edelman hogging the slot role. Collie has had his own laundry list of health problems, missing 22 games over the last three seasons due to concussions and a ruptured patellar tendon. Only owners in the deepest of leagues need to consider a speculative add.

Free agent Austin Collie is working out for the Titans on Tuesday.

It's Collie's first known workout since he was released by the 49ers at final cuts. It's an indication Kenny Britt's (rib) Week 5 status is up in the air despite his protestations to the contrary. Collie would be at the back of a muddled Titans receiver corps.
