Patriots Bringing Back LB Jamie CollinsBob DeChiara - USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are apparently looking to add a little depth at linebacker, and it looks like they’ll be bringing back a familiar face in order to do it.

According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, the club is expected to sign Jamie Collins, which would be the fourth time he’ll be returning to Foxboro.

Collins was originally a second-round draft pick with the club in 2013 and he’s had some of his best moments in New England under Bill Belichick.  His addition should add some quality depth with Ja’Whaun Bentley, who has been the leader of the group to this point, as well as give additional help to Matthew Judon and Mack Wilson Sr.

Collins’ speed and versatility should give them a boost as he could be a piece the coaching staff moves around to try and improve their rush on the edge.  So far, most of their success has come from Judon, who finished Sunday’s game in Green Bay with a sack as well as 5 tackles.

The Patriots are currently coming off a 27-24 overtime loss in Green Bay on Sunday and will now spend this week getting ready to face the Detroit Lions Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
